($10 off using code “CRAP” through the 11th)
And because we’re keeping it real, I still don’t have numbers on all the drawers. I can, however, see my kitchen counter for the first time in weeks. So that’s something, right?
Other random things about the advent calendar:
The information that comes with the calendar says it takes 25-50 sheets of paper. That’s quite a range, right? If you make the option with the drawers, 25 sheets of 12 X 12 will be plenty. There’s no drawer cut that takes more than one sheet of paper. If you have the Silhouette SD, you’ll have to be a little more careful about where you split your designs and how you cut your papers, but you’ll be OK.
If your paper is directional, be sure that one of the sides with the hole (which becomes the notch) in it is facing the right direction. I did not do this and had to junk my first 2 boxes.
The papers I used came in a cardstock stack from Michael’s. I think with a coupon it was around $12.
Save your scraps. You’ll have plenty to put the numbers on your drawers.
There’s also a cutting template for a backing paper for each square, if you want it to look pretty with the drawers removed. Or, if you want to use the shadow box as an actual shadow box/display case.

You have until tomorrow night to enter the Rachael’s Soap giveaway.
I still haven’t heard from our Scentsy winner. If your name is Beverly, you’d better be scouring your spam folder to see if you missed an email.
And, since football season is over and I finally have my life back, I got a new hair cut/color courtesy of Neighbor Jami. It’s the reddest I’ve been since an unfortunate run in with a shade called Terracotta in college. It should have been called Ronald McDonald, and that’s all I’m saying about that.
Hope your weekend is fabulous! I’ve got big plans to do some serious decluttering and to remedy the Teen Wolf hair situation my boys are sporting.
