WOYWW #234 Gift for Hubby...


Today I am off to DTown with Hubby to celebrate Thanksgiving with Family Nixon. JT will be there too, super excited.

But before all the excitement its time for WOYWW...if you don't know what I'm talking about..go and visit our fabulous hostess Julia at Stamping Ground for the weekly global desk nosy.

On my desk today is a little gift for Hubby...I've made him an advent calendar!! You can see some of the bags for the gifts, some of the gifts and some of the leftover peanut butter cups (yums) - I have alternated the gifts and chocolate. A;so on there are my scissors, my glasses, my mouse, promarkers and a sheet of 3D stickers...which I dug out and now I can't remember why!

Here is a close-up of the bags and gifts..the green sequinned bird is mine and not a gift for the Hubby!

Advent calendar bags and gifts

It was really easy to make, I used mini Kraft bags, washi tape on each bag, a punched snowflake, a punched hexagon and adhesive letters.

I bought all the gifts at Party City for 35cents!!

I am planning on staying up late on Saturday night to hang it above his desk! I hope he likes it.

Oh and if anyone has a Cricut and wants 5 dollars/euros/pounds off of a 9.99 digital image purchase, just leave me a comment saying so and I'll put your names in a hat and announce the 'winner' next week. I bought some glitter film, but I have a Silhouette so it is no good to me.


p.s WOYWW'ers here is the Bow from last week..


  1. Never thought to do one for my son yes. That reminds me, I need to go in the roof and get the boxes of Xmas stuff down for Sunday as we put our stuff up on the did we get there so quickly? #31

  2. What a great idea!! I love advent calendars and who wouldn't want little treats through out the month? Last year I bought my guy a cat calendar - turns out he loved it! You just never know. Have a great Thanksgiving weekend!

  6. What a nice gift for the hubby. I may need to lift this idea. Peg R #83

  7. How sweet to do an advent for your hubby, I am sure he will love his surprise each day before Christmas. Those little bags are such a clever idea, I got some the other day and gave a pack to my BF. My children still open advent calendars every year and one is 27 the other nearly 19 years old. So good for you. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.

    Hugs, Happy Crafting & WOYWW
