Rusty Pickle Blog Hop and Prize









Well Hello so glad you made to the first stop on the Blog Hop!! If you forget your way alon the hop just go to the Rusty Pickle blog starting HERE. Along the way you will find some AMAZING eye candy and inspiration. Please remember to leave a comment so you can be entered a drawing I will be having on the 18th of Dec. I am giving away one I-top. Yes you heard right one I-top. You have to leave a comment under this post so I know you will be entered in the drawing. I will have Cooper draw out the name. It does not matter where you live I will ship anywhere. I am running this drawing until the 18th because that will be when my daughter Crystal is coming home for the holiday on leave from the Army, and to mark the one year anniversary of being in my house. I'm excited and wanted to pass on my joy to you. The project I have made for yo share with you wonderful visitors is a Advent calender....no not your typical one...lol!!! I made it into a calender for my daughter Amanda who is planning on being a Chef, she even just got her class ring with the culinary symbol. The calender has a recipe in each box on typing (copy) paper, so each day marking down the days to Christmas, she can ,ake a new recipe each day. So all her holiday baking will be complete. It is exciting to see what each day will bring. Also to enjoy a sample of the creation.....yum yum!!!

SdenisonT said...

When I saw your advent calendar was cooking themed I thought it was cute but then when I read that you put recipes in each box I thought that was such a clever idea. I had considered culinary school also and visited the CIA in NY so I live this project.

IrisGoddess said...

What a cool project! I love the idea of putting a recipe in each drawer. Awesome!

I want to make an Advent Calendar for my daughter when she gets a little older. She's only 16 months old right now. I couldn't make her a calendar even if I had the supplies because I seriously lack the time because of her. lol!

jjindp said...

GrannyCharlotte said...

Great project. Hope your daughter loves being a chef. Thanks for sharing your ideas. Merry Christmas!!
