Advent?

How in heavens name did it get to be so late in the month already? Well Christmas is just getting pulled out of the boxes and that includes Advent. I love advent I love each and every day watching the count down to the last & best part of the year.
When I was growing up we had the best advent calender ever ~each and every day one of Santa's elves would leave a note in the calendar for us, each day we did a little something dictated by the man himself to get ready for the 25th. Here is the photo of my very own "Pretty Lady's" advent, and since I am the only child home I have been making up what the elf has been saying the last couple of days ~tonight it said "dinner & a movie" I had PF Changs and The Holiday ~all oh so lovely.


I love advent so much though that I don't just do one calendar. ~Last year I stitched up this lovely little idea from Bareroots.


This year I made envelope advents and sent them off to Swell & Roo both of whom have given them rave reviews ~one of which included premature opening.
I hope everyone has a lovely time celebrating this holiday ~I will show you more of my celebration later~

You have the BEST projects ever! I love Advent as well. My lovely Santa is haning on the wall, but the elves keep forgetting to visit. Hmmm...
