December 1st

Well, this year I felt like a something a little different for our advent calendar. The kids actually have a calendar each but I wanted them to have one together this year. So while in Esk on our scrapbook weekend I saw this pattern block at the craft shop and thought I would buy it and have a go at making my own. This is what the final product looks like. I am actually quite happy with it. It's nice to have something that you have made yourself.

I like the pockets they are square and big enough for me to fit my scroll with activity in and a chocolate for a treat every couple of days. We have put our other advent calendars up too, just for decoration.
I also finally came up with my advent list of activities for the year too. I have 3 days that I am yet to fill in but all the others are typed and in place. (Let's just hope I have enough, time energy and patience to do all the things I have put in!).
Hope you have had a great first day of December.


  1. Just gorgeous Deb, where did you find the time? At least you have it up, I haven't got that far yet.

  2. What a gorgeous calendar. Wish I'd seen it - must keep a look out in the sales. I might actually have it made by next year!


I would love to hear any comments you may have about my blog, even just a hi to let me know someone is reading it!
