So Creative it Hurts.


Have you recovered from the shock of seeing all my blog posts yesterday?  Yes, it’s either feast or famine around here.

Look at what lucky Brian got to take to work on Monday! (Luckily I took pictures a few weeks ago when I made it.)


Can you tell what it is?  It is an ADVENT CALENDAR MADE FROM GUM!!  Hahahahaha! 

Inside are some gum packets (I used Dentyne Ice).

IMG_8566 I numbered the back of the packets, so Brian gets to pop out a piece of gum for every day in December!

 IMG_8565 Don’t worry, the “snowman head” is number 23, so he will still show for a long time.  You have to think about these things, you know.

I could go on and on about how I made it, but since it is already December…what?…3rd?… anyway, it is too late for you this year.  The instructions are here if you are interested and want to make a mental note for next year.  Although hers are much cuter, so you might not want to look.

First, Brian was the only guy in the office with Halloween-themed baggies in his lunch, and now a gum advent calendar??!!  Does the creative fun ever stop?  He is lucky that he snagged me early.

I bet all of his friends are really jealous. 

Or they mock me behind my back. 

I choose jealous.

(My cousin Julie and her baby are coming today!!!!  Company!!!!! )

Caitlin, I'm POSITIVE all his friends are jealous but their wives may be just WISHING they could hang out with you so you could teach them all your boss tricks! I LOVE THE ADVENT GUM CALENDAR
