ChiChi Calendars

I just found a fun new word (new to me). I think I will start using and see if it catches on. CHICHI.

Here is what had to say:

ChiChi - pronounced [shee-shee]

affectedly trendy and fashionable

someone who dresses in a trendy fashionable way
elegance by virtue of being fashionable

Origin: 1905–10; French

I thought the calendars pictured below were dressed up so chichi. These creative women have made these advent calendars, but I thought you could have magnets on the months and change it out. Households with children (and children at heart) would enjoy all the quirky ways to form the numbers. I added the link to the sites where I found these.

So, clean out your junk drawer and use your imagination!
