DIY Christmas Advent Calendar -with stuff around the house!

December 1st is almost here so if you need/want a Christmas Advent Calendar, now is the time to do it!  This is what I did with my remedial craft skills and limited supplies..lol

Stuff I used from around my house:
A piece of a cardboard box
Christmas wrapping paper
tape
scissors
Christmas Gift Bag (the pocket/picture of Santa)

Doesn't get easier than that :)  I had some snowman wrapping paper from last year.  I just cut out some snowmen and taped them on as pockets so I could add candy, notes, or whatever to each day.  One caution about a paper pockets is that you can't put any loose candy in it that the kids have to fish around for, cuz it will break for sure!  Or just keep some extra tape handy...lol


For the pockets I just folded in the sides a bit and taped them down.  Can this be done a fancier way?  I'm sure of it!  But I did this by myself and didn't have my craft/sewing buddies there to help me or do it for me (lol).

I printed the numbers from my computer and I foun…

GIVEAWAY: The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot about Christmas DVD! (US) -CLOSED-

Winner

The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas is a great DVD to add to your Christmas collection!  It's a 60 minute holiday special!  I love Martin Short as the voice of the Cat!!  My 3 and 5 year old really enjoy this movie.  My daughter loves the big Christmas tree and now can't wait until we get ours.   Although I've told her it won't be that big:)

Sure to be a holiday favorite for the entire family for years to come, this adventure finds the Cat in the Hat, Nick and Sally on a journey around the world to help a lost reindeer find his way home to Freezeyourknees Snowland in time for Christmas. On the way, the Thinga-ma-jigger breaks down, and they depend on a variety of animals – from African bush elephants to bottlenose dolphins to red crabs – and their remarkable abilities to help them make an amazing journey home.

Along with being entertaining The Cat in the Hat is also educational!  It's always fun to hear my kids spout out new facts they've learn…

GIVEAWAY: Vinyl Sticker Wall Decal! (US) -CLOSED-

Winner

Vinyl Decals are so much fun!!  We just moved into a new house and all of our walls are pretty drab.  I've just now started putting pictures up and it helps A LOT.
What also helped was putting up this awesome train wall decal!!  My son's mouth actually dropped open when he saw it.  He still goes up to it and lovingly strokes it..lol

Vinyl Disorder has a HUGE selection (over 70,000) on wall stickers and you can choose what color you want it in!  It's a little hard to tell in the above picture but I chose green.  So now of course my son thinks Percy is on his wall :):)

The vinyl decal was super easy to install.  I first removed the back to show the sticky part, placed it on the wall where I wanted it, then used the plastic doohickey it came with to press it down.  Lastly you just pull the top layer of paper off slowly.  If you want it more precise you can use tape to secure it.  The instructions that come with are very user friendly.  The fact that I didn't make …

EASY Money back for Online Shopping almost anywhere!! Shop At Home & Ebates!!

Do you shop online?  Go through Ebates or Shop At Home FIRST!  It's super easy, and it's nice to get a check in the mail. :)

Both sites offer a $5 sign up credit and a % back depending on what online store you use.  They have about every store you can think of.  I use both and go with the one that has the highest % back for the particular store I'm shopping at.  Both pay out quarterly.  I've used them for a couple years now and I have had no problems with either one.  I get really mad at myself if I forget to use them!!

To sign up at either or both all they need is your name, email, and address.  And they pay out quarterly when your account reaches $20.  If you don't reach it the amount carries over until you do.

Here's how it works:

After you sign up, search for the store you want
Click Shop Now
You'll then be redirected to the store you want
Shop At Home or Ebates keeps track of the rest!!!

Tomato Basil
Garlic Pesto
Salsa Verde
Smokey Chipotle
Cornflower
100% Whole Wheat
Fresh Spinach

Deer Creek Foods tortillas are as fantastic as they sound!!  One recipe I tried was a tuna wrap on a Tomato Basil tortilla!  The tortillas add a great flavor to any meal!  My kids even liked these wraps!! (without the onion that is)  Along with one meal this week the kids just wanted a Garlic Pesto tortilla with butter melted on it...YUM!!
I also tried the Garlic Pesto tortillas in my chicken enchiladas recipe I always use.
It was so amazing!  I love all of the options of flavors and fun new recipes there are to try with them! …
