I decided this year I would make advent calendars for the women in my family (grandma, mom, and sister) and here is the finished result:

my grandma's calendar, idea taken from http://www.garnethill.com/jump.jsp?itemID=12609&itemType=PRODUCT&RS=1&keyword=advent

my sister's calendar


the tins have magnets to the back and are supposed to go on a fridge

and finally, my mom's


hers also has magnets on the back and are these little plastic boxes I got from the container store

Cool. I especially like the two tin/container ones. I would have to put numbers on mine though. Much more permanent than my quick/last minute one. This is something which I could probably actually get done.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

What an awesome gift for the women in your family.  In a lot (not all, maybe not even most) of families it is the women making the holiday season so special and how nice to give something special just to them.

I was going to put numbers on them, but I ran out of money and didn't like the way it looked when I wrote the numbers...I guess I'm going for an abstract advent calendar Smiley
