Today I realized it was now or never. (Well, not really never, but not until next year, at least.)
Inspired by several blog posts, like this one at The Crafting Chicks, I decided to make one of paper library pockets I had picked up from Dollar Tree a while back.
I used some Martha Stewart glitter I had on hand to make the numbers. The pockets are hung on fine ribbon with paper clips.
It super simple, but I love it. It has all the ingredients for success here: loud colors, lots of glitter, and it was fast and inexpensive.
There's still time to whip up one for yourself tomorrow, out of about $3 worth of office supplies...
If you're wondering what's in the pockets this year, some days have notes about the day's activities. (Christmas Eve=birthday party for Jesus, etc.) Every day will have a Jesse Tree ornament from the Advent Devotional at A Holy Experience. They'll also be a piece of yarn in each pocket, to line the manger with "hay." (For more info on that idea, check out this post at Live, Learn, Love.)
