I love!  (haha!)
don't you?

Having something to look forward to makes the day-to-day hum drum seem more exciting!

Which is why I love the idea of having countdowns!  New Years Eve countdowns, Picture taking countdowns (3,2,1 Say cheese!), countdown calendars, countdown paper chains, countdown all of it!

I saw this adorable idea over at Ponytails and Fishscales for these Halloween Countdown Blocks!  I've been wanting some countdown blocks for a while.  I've seen many tutes for the wooden countdown blocks, but Tere's version is such a perfect idea for me since its easier for me to whip up something on the sewing machine than to go find wood, a saw and sanding paper!

Here's my copy cat version!  Love them!

Thanks to Tere for sharing her genius!  Lots more fun over at her blog!  Go check it out!!

SUPER CUTE! I saw them over at Pony Tails and loved them. Isn't it great to get some inspiration from others and then use it to make your own super cute stuff?? Thanks a bunch for linking up to Thrilling Thursday @ Paisley Passions :)

Thanks for sharing with us at A Crafty Soiree! Hope you'll join us at the newest one, it begins tomorrow!

That is a very fun idea indeed and I like how you only will have to store too fabric boxes. It will be great fun to take them out year after year.
