Muffin Pan Advent Calendar

So excited to finally have this project done! I searched the internet for homemade advent calendars and this one was BY FAR my favorite. It only took me a couple days to put together and really turned out cute! All you need is a 24 count mini muffin pan, a roll of extra strength magnet, and all your shiny scrapbooking supplies! A little creativity doesn't hurt either.


 You can put treats, scripture verses, money, whatever fun little things your children might love in the cubbies. No more lame Wal Mart advent calendars anymore!


I can't wait for the many memories and traditions we'll create with this throughout the years to come.


As far as this lady lady is concerned, I just can't keep up with her. By the time I've picked up all her messes in one room, she's gone and terrorized the next! She's so stinkin fast.


We're already enjoying the holidays so much. We went and visited Santa at South Towne Mall yesterday. Nora was a tad irritated that we had to wait in the line for so dang long, but she wasn't even scared of the jolly old man. Going to the festival of trees tonight. Hope everybody has a wonderful weekend!

Instead of me making my own next year maybe I'll just hire you out!

Can we pretend that you still visit teach me and when you ask if there's anything you can do for me I say "Please make me an advent calendar or I won't come to church anymore".

I agree with everyone else... where can I sign up for you to make me one! Look at you... seriously is there anything you aren't good at girl? Your little Nora is so dang cute. I love her little hair :) I hear ya on picking up messes one after the other. I think that should be my job title.

Yes... I want you to make me one... maybe two???
Tell me what you would charge, I can even buy the muffin pan if that would be easier.
You can email me about this as well, racquel_chase@yahoo.com
