Super Simple Advent Calender

Now that our girls are a little older and are starting to understand and be more interested in this whole thing called Christmas, I decided to make an Advent calender for them.  I was inspired by yet another pin on Pinterest.  It caught my eye because it is based on a book we already have. 

The link took me here, where they had a reading plan already made up.  She mentioned that she was going to print off the list then cut it up to put into her advent calender, so that got me thinking.  We didn't already have an advent calender and I didn't want to spend much money or time this year making one.  So I took the list, copy and pasted it into labels in Publisher, printed,cut them out and folded them in half.  Then I took some ribbon and clothes pins and made a super simple advent calender.  In a moment of extra insanity, I decided to decorate the clothes pins with glitter, so now there is glitter everywhere thanks to the girls "helping" me.

I thought that since I put forth the effort to make the labels that I would share them with you.  You should be able to download it, if not let me know and I'll email it to you.  Feel free to use it any way you want.

(By the way this is my 50th post!)


  1. So cute! I'd love for you to share this or any of your great ideas at the link party going on now (and every Saturday - Tuesday) at 'Or so she says ...' Hope to see you there!


Thank you so much for commenting! I read every one (including those ridiculous spam ones) and love hearing what you think!
