Project Share - 2013 Advent Calendar

Hey guys! I know I have been among the missing. I am still here :) I have been having issues with my computer, so it has been going back and forth between Toshiba and myself.

It should be here tomorrow and I can get back on track. I do plan on finishing the 12 Meows of Christmas this year. It seems every time I try to do this something happens. Last year my back was giving me more issues than normal and this year it is the computer. So, I have decided to just keep going even if some of the cards are after Christmas. It will start giving you ideas for Christmas 2014 and you can be ahead of the pack!

What I am sharing with you today is an advent calendar I made for my son. He has loved it! I really didn't know when I bought it if he would be that into it, being 17 years old. (He will be 18 in less than 2 months..YIKES!!!) But, he looks forward to it every morning when he gets up. It really warms my heart and makes me think back to when he was a little tyke.

I am looking forward to getting another one next year if Hobby Lobby carries them again to do one for a friend.

Without further adieu..
