Risa,

I saw you on Studio 5 and thought that calendar was so cute. The first thing I thought of when I saw that calendar was my mom. She would love that in her home for the grandkids. But since she is now going back to school she doesn't have time to make one. So if I WIN I will give this to her:) Thanks for sharing.

I am a huge studio 5 fan. I had a miracle baby at 44 after being told I would never have children. So I am getting started late at all of this crafting for children. I absolutely love your advent calendar. I hope I win. I have enjoyed reading your blog and will be a frequent visitor to your site.
I love creative people!!!

This is Mary Ann.....I'm on Charon's computer. I am a F-U-N grandma! My grandson is a 1 1/2 years younger than Charon's cute little Emma. My little Noah loves surprises at Nana & Papa's house. He has a little brother or sister arriving in March. I am now gathering fun Halloween traditions.......and this advent calendar would be a great addition to our home. My friends "mock" me because I begin to gather Christmas presents in January.....so I would be a great gatherer of Halloween prizes throughout the year! Please pick me, pick me!!!

Brian and Melissa said...

But, I'm so sad I've missed this! I really would have LOVED to enter. Did you do one for all 31 days? Pics?...hopefully! I have to do one now. I was thinking about it since I'm making an advent for Christmas (check out a feathered nests as it's very similar style http://projectsforyournest.blogspot.com/2009/11/advent-calendar-final-phase.html) but couldn't envision simple halloween images.

I found you while hunting :) up wording for halloween invitations. Love the witches britches. Wonder if I could make an outdoor one for the clothes line...now that shows you're a halloween addict! ;)
