Just in the St. Nick of time

Wow! Everything seems to get done at the last minute around here lately. But I’m happy to say that BOTH kids will have an advent calendar this year. I squeezed out an extra day, as the boy is visiting grandparents tonight, so although it’s not hung, it’s ready to go.

I got the idea from Lindsay over at Little House Blog a few years ago here and have enjoyed filling it ever since. Here it is handing last winter.

MommyDo Advent Calendar - Art Deco

I needed to make one for Obi so I went back to Little House Blog and used this free printable to create a second set of bags.

I love the colours and set the numbers off to the side to give it a modern feel.

They’re all done and ready to hang.

His will be filled with the contents of a LEGO advent calendar and hers will be filled with baby things like socks, headbands and some Little People.

Around here, we hang day by day to avoid the whole “Why can’t we open them all at once?” drama.

If want to make one (next year, maybe, since it’s December tomorrow) you can order the bags from Lindsay’s shop.

Oh Happy Day. December tomorrow. And we’re diving into the Christmas Baking binder to start the 12 Treats of Christmas. Are you ready to get your bake on?
