I've been trying to make sure that at least some of the things I've wanted to do actually get done. This past week I decided to actually make the advent calendar I've been wanting to make the Tornado since at least last Christmas. I really liked this one and wanted to make something like it however, I ran into a few problems. The first is that my crafting abilities are about on the same level of a 2nd grader. The second is that I waited until around 9PM on November 30th. The third is that I just assumed I had enough supplies to make a decent looking one. Unfortunately, when I discovered the third problem I was hindered by the second problem so I ended up hodge podging something together that doesn't quite look like what I had in mind but it is at least functional. Next year I need to start on this at least by mid-November and see if I can hunt up some envelope pocket type things.

Verdict: Still love the one she made but I just need to get started earlier next year so definitely keep.
For next week I'm still hanging out on my Christmas board. The Tornado and I are going to give these glitter ornaments a try.
