While browsing a craft fair last weekend, I noticed the new trend of turning cookie sheets into works of art.
Such works of art included memo boards, photo frames, and Christmas Advent Calendars (and now, a reward/chore chart I made for Isaac last week. Pictures to come).
I have been searching for an Advent Calender for casa de phillips over the years and have yet to discover one that I like that is a reasonable price (But I do slightly covet the Pottery Barn version sold here)....
...until I saw the Cookie Sheet Christmas Advent Calender.
The booth selling these gems was charging a whooping $55 for such a calender.
I figure I could make one myself for a third the cost.
After a little online research, I quickly discovered directions for creating these calenders were everywhere. I immediately became inspired to put on my "Martha Stewart hat" and get crafty.
I love nothing more than pulling out the glue gun and spray adhesive, grabbing my sharpest scissors and stash of "good" markers (Read: Not Crayola nor washable), and setting myself down in front of Food Network for a little bit of craft time (obviously I do this when the children are in bed at night). Anyone interested in making their own Cookie Sheet Advent Calender?
