Hope your Turkey Day was wonderful. We certainly have a lot to be thankful for in this family and it was nice to join hands and eat delicious food around our family table.
Now it is onto the down hill slide into Christmas!
I wanted to show you this cute and inexpensive advent calendar idea.
Target had these advent calendars with chocolates inside each little door for $2.50.
|Target had all sorts of different designs.|
|My youngest daughter's boyfriend is a huge Star Wars fan so I got this one to make for him.|
|Abby my 6 year old granddaughter is into Trolls so this one was a cute choice for her.|
Every year I make each of my two daughters, SIL and now grand girls an advent calendar that I give them at Thanksgiving. It is just a fun little tradition we have. So each year I try to make a craft out of the advent calendars I give them.
|I also found this cute Hersey Kisses Calendar at Cracker Barrel. My daughter loves Hersey's kisses so this one was a cute choice for her. Love that she gets a little kiss of chocolate each day of advent.|
|I got these tiny clothes pins with gold and silver glitter on them in the dollar bins at Target. Gotta love those dollar bins at Target!|
|I took Elmer's glue and put a strip of glue on each little advent door.|
|For my daughters and SIL I added a $1 lottery ticket on each of the windows.|
|My adult kids love the lottery ticket scratch offs along with a yummy chocolate each day.|
Now on to another fun item to show you.
|I wanted to show you a cute little party favor I did for each of the girls coming to my girlfriend party next week.|
|I got these cute tote bags at TJ Maxx for 99 cents. Just adorable and each girl will have a sweet tote to take home all the goodies from the party. Oh la la just too fun and cute!|
|I just rolled them up and tied them off with some white ribbon.|
