Thanks so much!  I'm proud of it even though certain portions took longer than expected - like making a hinge pin for one of the hinges.

Thanks so much!  This friend is also super-crafty and in similar ways that I am, so I find it hard and intimidating to craft for her.  Last I heard, she had not unwrapped the box.  I'm on pins and needles!  Well, at least as much as can be expected when having a new puppy in the house.  Wink

I agree!  This is great!  I love the way it has a decoration a day... not just chocolate.  Now what I want to know is what your friend thought of it... now that it is into December... she MUST have opened it! Cheesy Cheesy

Thanks!  My favorite advents are those that aren't chocolate - especially for reuse every year.  I only added chocolate, because the drawers looked too empty... and well, she enjoys some chocolate.  Wink  And she says she loves it!
