Countdown to Disney Calendar

The other day, completely out of nowhere, Greg ask me if I had made a calendar yet for the kids to count down the days until DisneyWorld. I don't know when he became the Martha Stewart of the house... but, okay.



He didn't have to ask me twice. I know when to stop cleaning (Ha-Ha) and go craft!



I grabbed this out of my "Things I bought at a garage sale to do something with, but never have" box.



I painted it white and mod-podged it with paper.



I downloaded Waltograph font from dafont.com and guess what?! I used my Silhouette to cut them out! Remember that I got it for Christmas? It's literally been sitting here on my desk next to the computer and I've been too afraid to try it. Well, I finally put on my big girl panties and used it!



The numbers are the same font and I put them on paint chips.



"Martha" can sleep easier now, the kids have a Countdown to Disney!

I'll be joining these fabulous parties this week!

Oh I wish I could go to Disney with you all. I grew up on Disney since my dad is from Orange County and my grandparents lived right by their. We use to watch the Disney fireworks from their front yard. My kids have not yet gone. My husband has only been once, and he was only 5 years old. It's a family dream vacation to all go someday. Hope you have an incredible time. Very cute calendar. I am with you, I tend to drop my house chores for crafting at a drop of a hat, probably not a good thing.
