How many days til Christmas?????


Yes, it is true! Hard to believe how quickly it is coming!

I love the countdown to Christmas, and an Advent Calendar is a tradition in our family. We don't use the chocolate ones - I am a big fan of activities that help us to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and encourage nice family time together in the midst of a busy season! I have used fabric and paper calendars in the past - this year I am teaching a couple of Advent Calendar classes at Scrapbook Parade, so I got the opportunity to use the great pull out box calendar from Kaisercraft !

Here is the first of two I am designing - using paper from My Mind's Eye:

I can't wait to fill it with some great family activities ( and maybe a chocolate or two !) The second one uses paper from Echo Park - and when I get it done I will be sure to post it!!!

What are YOU doing to get ready for the holiday season???

Happy day everyone!
