I love advent calendars!

Here is my version of the advent calendar. I kept thinking the weather would clear up and I'd get a sunny day to take pictures of it. I did get a sunny day, but it was very windy outside and I couldn't find a great place inside to take pictures. So...this was the best I could do. You can see most of it, but I really didn't capture all the sparkle.
I love the idea of a muffin tin transformed into an advent calendar. After all, is has the treat box built in for each day!
I spray painted the muffin tin and then covered that with a pearl paint. I also rubbed it lightly with distress ink.
I used heavy duty magnets (the shipping cost more than the product!) to create each square.
It makes me smile everytime I see it. And that's saying quite a lot, since I sold several and got rather tired by time I had made them all! Are you ready for Christmas? I've still got some gifts to make...gotta go get busy!
