October Advent Calendar!

Here is what I have been working on this week.  I decided to make a calendar for October that would count down to Halloween.  Nothing scary, except maybe a little spider.  Everday has a flap that lifts up and says something chores day, family game night, family movie and pizza night, family craft night, bonus 30 minutes of bedtime reading, etc.  The green box has room for candy.  I tried to get creative as time would allow for.  This time of year is very busy for us with soccer and gymnastics.  Next week we will add Awanas at church, to top off the craziness!  We will spend our weekends going to the farmers market, the zoo, or the local amusement park.  So, this is my way of giving my kids little promises of time I will spend with them.  This is what I came up with:

Supply list:
Art Philosophy
Pair of Frames D1527
Glamour Lowercase D1522
Tulle Ribbon Z1798
Inks and Cardstock in Black, Sunset, Honey, Pear and Gypsy
velcro tabs from Joann's
