I really like the whole concept behind Advent calendars. For starters, Advent. Like it. For second, candy. I’m in.
Last year, we made two. Using barely any skill or money.
The first for getting.
This year, I think we’ll bring back the “giving back” one, but I did something different on the other.
I used only material we already had in the house, because I did this last minute, and because I didn’t want to buy anything. Except I bought all of the treats a few weeks ago when I purchased Advent grab bags from Maggie Mason and Rena Tom to support Charity : Water. I love the end result.
I’m in the process of making my office into a guest bedroom, and just moved most of the furniture out of it. So right now it’s sort of The Advent Room. It’s true that I may a procrastinating non-traditional Advent celebrator…as I wrote about right here, ahem…but then again, I have an ENTIRE ADVENT ROOM! At least for the next few days.
