Advent Calendar

The other day my dad called and asked if I would be home to accept a special delivery.  Of course I would be home, I have no car to get me anywhere...I am stranded dailly (can you sense any resentment in that sentence?).

He showed up with a Diet Coke (thank heaven) and this really cute Advent Calendar for the kids.

I asked him how he came up with the idea for it and he said that he was standing in the check-out line at Expedex looking at the last minute items up for grabs one of which was your standard advent calendar and beside it was some bubble wrap.  Wah-lah...a creative genuis at work!  (You can see in the middle picture the bubble-wrap better)

He came home, worked on the creation and gave one to each of his grandkids and a few other special kids in his life.  I love having a dad that is so creatively gifted (and knows a thing or two about photoshop/illustrator/etc).

I know that there are a few of there out there that create amazing works of art on your own...so give this one a try!

I saw one of them when I ran by the house today. So cute! I thought dad had done them for work since he's in shipping. I asked him to make me one. :)

That is seriously the most genius idea! I love it and have to try it! I think I know where you must get your magical creativity from...
