Surprise you loved one with an elaborate countdown for his/her birthday!


In 2002, I created an elaborate 40 Days to 40 Birthday countdown for my husband. Every day for 40 days he received a countdown card with a note on the opposite side and a small gift or letter from one of his guy friends. On the big day, his final gift was a candy board with a poem telling him he was going scuba diving at the GA Aquarium.
