Well here it is:
I LOVE the way it came out, numbers and all (but I am glad that I do not have to do more numbers).
Like I said before I made it from Make It Do (from this pattern). I did change the pattern a bit (no laughing friends). First I made the pockets bigger (they where 2.5 in in the pattern and I wanted them 3.5 to give me more room for ornaments) and of course I did not read how she did it all the way through so I ended up
So this is how it works, everyday you (being the kids) reach into the pocket and take out an ornament to put on the tree*. On Christmas Eve the tree will be decorated. I love this idea for many reasons, mostly because I do not have think about what I would put in EVERY single on of those pockets. So now on to filling the pockets with ornaments**. I am asking my crafty friends to make me one*** ornament, that way I will have a tree that is filled with wonderful handmade ornaments that will always remind me of all my friends (how about that for adding to the holiday spirit!)
*For this year since there are more then 24 days of Advent I just put more ornaments in the first pocket.
**For this year I am just using gift tags that I got at Target. (I would never expect anyone to make me an ornament in December! Man I know that we all have a million things to make for our own families:)
***If I have not asked you yet this is because A. I have not had the time or seen you or B. I do not know that you would/could make one. But of course if you want to make one feel free:)
