Countdown to Christmas 2010

Seriously...there is an actual countdown going on right now. As I write this post, the official countdown is 107 sleeps, 6 hours, 4 minutes and 27 seconds. Don't believe me? See it right HERE. Told you so! Are you scared yet?
I've always planned to make a handmade advent calendar. It hasn't happened yet, but I'm determined to make one this year. There are some adorable ideas online. Here are a few of my favorites:
This adorable advent garland from the Bella Boulevard blog;
Super cute wallhanging featuring the Cottage Christmas collection by Imaginisce;
Yummy little muffin tin countdown from Alisha Gordon for American Crafts;
Oh-my-cuteness mini gift tins by Kelleigh Ratzlaff;
Cookie sheet advent calendar by starrgirl17 (I just can't get enough of Sassafras Lass' Life at the Pole collection!);
and lastly, Danni Reid's charming countdown drawers are perfect for little treats.
I hope that these fabulous advent calendar ideas spark your creativity. Will this be the year that you make an advent calendar for your family? Tell you what, we'll do it together, OK?
