the advent of december...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break and stuffed themselves heartily! It was wonderful to get some much needed time off work and spend it with my family. And way too easy to get used to... waking up in the dark this morning while everyone was sleeping made me long for another week of freedom. Thank goodness I'm taking a week at Christmas too! I've already started getting in the holiday spirit and will have a few special posts this month, including a joint venture with Cakewalk Baking that I'm super excited to share with you.

Meanwhile, I've been on the hunt for a unique advent calendar. After quite a bit of browsing I came upon this lovely from the Purl Bee. It involves a bit of effort and creativity, but with a beautiful result. The felt is so warm and wintery, and the pouches are just the right size for little gifts {and little fingers}. If you're so inclined to give it a try, there is a great step by step tutorial on their site to help walk you through...

UPDATE: Jordan from Polka Dot Prints sent me this free DIY advent garland made from paper! Download it for yourself here.
