A couple weeks ago I wanted to make the boys a countdown to Halloween calender. I got the idea from my sister-in-law Cassandra last year when she emailed me an advent calender from Pottery Barn Kids for Christmas. I looked on the Pottery Barn website to get an idea for the Halloween one and it was over $50! I thought to myself "I could make one of these for much less". I went to the fabric store and bought all the felt I needed to make the calender. I started to cut out the squares and brainstormed how I would make the calender. I was so excited.
A day later I took a trip to "The Christmas Tree Shops" and found an almost identical calender like the one at Pottery Barn for $5.00!!! So I bought it. I figure I would save a lot of time and aggravation. Now I have lots of time to start my Christmas calender!
