It’s Beginning…

Advent-calendar-fabric.jpgTo feel a lot like Advent Calendar time! Yippee! When I was younger, my mom and Aunt CC used to devote much of November to prepping a reusable Advent Calendar for me and my siblings to share and open together. It’s such a fun way to get the Holiday spirit going, and honestly, it really helped me learn how to count! (At least up until 25.) images.jpg

As a college student, I’ve reverted to the chocolate calendars, which is fine and dandy, but I do think it’s so fun to give some little, meaningful trinkets out each day. Even if you want to sneak your roommate a cute little note and a bag of peppermint candies, it feels good to GIVE!

Divine-Chocolate-Advent-Calendar-2013-1.jpgOnce you’ve decided you’re gonna go big, the debate about wood or cloth comes into play. I was always a fan of the cloth calendar, because then you can display it in the kitchen from a hook. But there are also some really adorable Scandinavian-inspired, wooden calendars. It’s up to you!

Here is a mock list of 25 days of advent treats, inspired by mom and Aunt CC. All of these things can be purchased from your local dollar store/craft annex. (This is for kids, but I can do an adult version too!)
