12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop - Day 10

Happy Wednesday, 
Welcome to...
Day 10
of the
12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop
This hop will take place November 24th through December 5th and the new postings each day will be posted by 8am eastern standard time. This hop will be full of wonderful ideas and inspiration to get you well on your way of creating all of those beautiful Christmas project. This is an awesome way to get a lot of your Christmas cards, and scrapbook layouts finished, home decorations completed and maybe even be inspired to create something using a new technique that you have never tried. There will be a new project posted each and every day by all the wonderful amazing ladies in this hop. Also each day we will have a guest designer or two for you to visit.
Now onto my project for today...

 Today I would like to share with you the advent calendar that I made for my Daughter. She loves the Grinch, so I made a Grinch themed advent calendar. I took your ordinary over the door shoe holder, added some red and white sparkly garland that is actually meat to go on small Christmas tree's.
Each day she moves the stuffed Grinch over to the next day/pocket, turns the number card over to revel a page from the Grinch story book to read, then she can open a little present wrapped in Grinch wrapping paper of course.


In case you get lost along the way here is today's line-up...
