I got this idea from another blog and I loved the idea. I am doing the 25 days of Christmas for John. Each day he gets to turn around another one (I had to make him promise not to cheat!) Some just say something that I love about him, some are a service or something that I will do that day for him, and others are where I am giving him something (like a small gift). I liked this idea for many reasons. John is super hard to shop for, and he usually knows what I am getting him for Christmas. So this was something that helped us to draw closer together. And it looks really cute on my wall! I am not going to lie people. :) No, but seriously, I love this. I think it will become another tradition to do each year.
Don't mind Elvin, he sure was not bothered. He was making me "something" to eat and could not be bothered. :)
I lucked out and found an Advent Calendar Kit from Joannes and I just used the elements from that kit with some scrapbook paper that I have. Super easy and inexpensive!
