Advent Calendar



A big hello to all my visitors! OMG.....let me tell you, this project was monumental. It took me all month, working on it every day! It is for the family Christmas present. We have a tradition in our family where everyone makes something and it has to be a handmade project. My husband is making a cedar chest for a lucky someone. We each pull a number and when the number is called, we select a gift. However, if someone else picked a gift that we would like, we may "steal" the gift and then that person gets to select another gift. I can show it on my blog because no one visits my blog. As long as I keep it off FB, I'm good...hahahaha
