Did December sneak up on anyone else? Or is it just me? I think it has something to do with the fact that Thanksgiving was so close to the end of the month this year...anywho. I can't believe it is already here! And I had such big plans to have a fun advent calendar this year! We have the traditional calendar style where you move the item from one day to the next, and I also have one that you put a tiny piece of candy in each drawer and you slowly get to gobble it up. But I really wanted to make a new one this year. I am bound and determined that it is not too late! With some hard work and plenty of man hours I still think I can get one going within the next few days.
Here are three of my favorites:
Soule Mama had this awesome one last year that I am still itching to make. There are also a million great ideas for small gifts too fill up the stockings in the comments.
Sarah actually found this one, and I am in love with it. The tutorial is here. I have almost all the supplies for this one, the trick is if I will have it made in time to use it for part of this season, or if it will have to wait till next year!
Salt and Chocolate, (who is constantly inspiring me!) just blogged about a fantastic idea of an advent village. With each day being a new piece for the little scene, mostly using things she already had around the house wrapped up like new, with a few new pieces thrown in. Such a fantastic idea, with a little planning I think I may try that when we have more space!
