WOW, It's Been a LONG Time!

I am not sure what happened this summer but I really have been unable to log on to post.  I have still enjoyed reading others blogs but hope to post AT LEAST once a week from now on because I really miss it!  I feel like I have still been creating but not posting.  Well the most recent craft I worked on was making a slider box advent calendar for my niece.  She had her tonsils out recently so I wanted to give her a get well/early Christmas gift.  I think for my first time making anything like this, including the slider boxes, it turned out cute.  I am hoping to get a few more made this week for my children (minus my 16 month old) and maybe my other niece, if  I can get it done.  Wish me luck! 

Here are the pics of the advent calendar.  Each drawer has a little surprise in it.  It was hard to find little items to fit in there but I really enjoyed making it.   I covered chipboard to make the top and bottom pieces to attached the boxes too.
The top is just a piece of chipboard covered in paper that I embossed using a sizzix die.
