{magnetic advent calendar}

Here is my finished project I was talking about before. We saw the idea to make a magnetic advent calenders here. We got these smaller cookie sheets at the dollar store and painted it with acrylic after spraying a fixative. The magnets are made of various bits 'n ends from our collections. I stamped "December" with my new (awesome!) Making Memories' "Philadelphia" set from HannahGrey. Our calendars turned out so differently with unique style but they're all awesome (in my opinion). This was time consuming but really fun!

Okay, I'm really happy to say that the two {take flight} sets are no longer MIA. So now, I have about 1370 (not a typo) pages to collate so I can take in to be bound. Yay! :)

GORGEOUS! I really am smitten with your calendar!

I've used cookie sheets for magnet boards as well, but I am wondering about the fixative (I've never used one)...can you shed some light? Thanks for sharing your gorgeous work, as always!
