Countdown to Christmas

02/11/2011

Now, as we’re entering into November, I’ve been thinking about putting a handmade advent calendar together. The nice thing about making your own, is that you can use any sort of treats you like (although who would say no to chocolate). I think the Advent Calendar Kit by Vivi Designs is a fab idea. It folds out to create a self standing scene and as the days go by towards Christmas, you add on one of the 25 stickers. Just a bit different from your average door opening chocolate calendar. Above, are a few contemporary ones I’ve found along the way.

      Hi cyanidelollipopdesigns

      They’re lovely aren’t they! So many wonderful ideas out there for Advent Calendars.
      What sort of advent calendar will you go for this year? Will you be making your own or do you like ones with a chocolate treat?

      Thanks for dropping by! I love, love, love you monochromatic magnets. So very cool!
