From the PublisherDon’t know about you, but Jake is a sucker for Advent calendars. Every Dec.1, she drags out this wooden box thingy with a gazillion small drawers, and for 25 days she tortures her daughter with daily X-mas verses. (The nerve!) The calendars in this book are the fabric version of that wooden box o’ torture, but go way beyond the obvious Yuletide types.
Some of our fave designers weigh in with their own versions of countdown calendars (Hey, Lisa Fulmer: Your Wedding Day Pockets is wonderful! Just had to say…), and they are pretty much clever and cute across the board. Which, after all, is what you want for any project that’s supposed to appeal to the littlest critics in the house. Many of the designs are adaptable for adult tastes as well. Think about a retirement countdown with honey-dos stuck in each pocket, or a baby countdown stuffed with new mommy tips and treats or even a count-up calendar to mark the steps accomplished on the way to a goal. (Maybe a pedicure coupon for every 10 pounds of weight loss?) Besides the variety of styles and designs, this is a whole lotta book for not much money, compared to many new titles out there now. Spend your money safely on this one.,
