I saw a similar version of this countdown calendar on Lisa Bearnson's blog and decided I wanted to buy one for my friend but couldn't find one anywhere. So I decided to make one! It was a busy two days work - sawing the wood by hand, painting it, figuring out how many numbers I would need and in what sequence they would go on the blocks, creating the word art in Photoshop and then assembling it. I had a lot of fun making it and my friend was really touched with her gift. I'm really pleased how it turned out!
Thanks for looking.
