Today is December 1, the first day I start to open the little doors on my advent calender. My love of advent calenders started at a young age. In first grade my friend had an advent calender in her room. She never opened the doors! And what I couldn't understand was, behind each door there was a lovely piece of chocolate. So whenever I was over and she wasn't looking, I'd eat a few... just to help her catch up of course. Since then, I love to get a calender every year, sometimes with chocolate, sometimes not.
Now that I am with child and thinking about future traditions with my
child(ren), I am brainstorming ideas of making my advent calender.
I came across this cute one on the blog Sew, Mama, Sew! I could just see myself putting little treats and mini gifts and notes in each pocket.
