Today is my Blogoversary--and I'm celebrating with a giveaway!!

Today is my Blogoversary. It's been two years.
I can't believe it's been that long!
I love my blog.
I love the creative outlet.
I love that it's a way to keep in touch with friends and family across the country.
I love that it's a way to share ideas and to find new things to try.
To celebrate, I decided to host my first giveaway!
I made one of these advent calendars from Teresa McFayden for my family during a craft spree in August. I also made a Halloween version, and boy, did my girls ever have fun finding the appropriate magnet every morning after breakfast!
This calendar is made from old cookie sheets and scrapbook paper. The magnets are a jumble of things from my craft stash and junk drawer, including bottlecaps, tags, a painted rock, clothespins, a lone magnet "7" from our fridge... There are also four small round boxes. I like to put small treats and a slip of paper with a family activity written on it in these boxes (decorate the tree, wrap presents, go caroling as a family, act out the Nativity story, etc)
If you want to win it, leave a comment before Thursday, November 12th at 8 pm MST!
Good luck!
