advent calender

....this beauty has taken me almost three years to make, it might even be more than that, but I'm going with 3. It was a work in progress, you could say.  I would only work on it right before Christmas and then I would start something new and push it back under my table and forget about, and I always figured Lillie was to young to count anyways, but now that she is in school I figured that I would GET IT DONE!
I got the cookie sheet at the dollar store, painted it white added some paper and then the next part is what took me so long, finding and making all the different things for each number.  Not that anything on it is out of this world or just took me foreverrrrrrrrrrrr!

the idea game from Katie Watson, she does such beautiful stuff!

thanks for looking
