Ideas and tips for an Advent Calendar

Hello, All,I'd like to run an advent calendar on my front page at entertainingsustainability.com during December (obviously!). Essentially, a different recommended product is featured every day, with a short writeup, but the ability to see past entries is a must.Festive (but tasteful) animation would be nice, and it would have to fit into the place currently occupied by the ScoopIt box.

Crystal Coleman replied to Tim Atkinson's discussion 'Ideas and tips for an Advent Calendar'
"That's a great idea! A lower tech solution (if you don't want to mess around with your slider) may be to just make a static image for each day (with the date and the product image, for example) and then link that to a page that lists the…"

"True. However, when Ning 3.0 launches, and their API is up and running, access to Ning API will be granted to all networks, regardless of plan."
