I sometimes forget I have a blog! What with all the sewing, family and general stuff that goes on I confess I am a rubbish blogger. So, to make it up to you I thought I would show you this year's Advent Calendar. Inspired by many many many versions on pinterest , I purchased some itty bitty gorgeous chevron paper bags from The Ribbon Reel, along with some baker's twine and set about making our Advent Calendar for this year.
I typed up a word document full of numbers 1-24, printed it onto some white card, dug out my trusty round paper punch to cut them out, grabbed some ickle pegs that I already had and hey presto. I've strung mine up across a blank stretched canvas, but you could string them up along your mantle, a book shelf or anywhere really.
I just need to get all the treats to go inside now, I do have a bag of chocolate coins but prefer the treats to be little gifts, maybe a moshi monster or a cute hair clip, a funny eraser or a Christmas Wish - such as a trip to see Santa or maybe a clue to where the girls will find a wrapped parcel - maybe a new Christmas book or movie for us to watch together - I'm a sucker for a festive film!
I'd better get my skates on and gather all the treats together.
In the meantime, I have ONE more chevron Advent Calendar to giveaway...
