Advent Calendar

Hello,

It's the first week of December. It's so exciting!

We are getting ready around here to decorate for Christmas.


We started listening to our Christmas music playlists, gathering together after dinner and
watching our favorite Christmas shows.


Last night after the kids went to bed I watched one of my favorite Black and White movies


The Bells of St. Mary's.


While watching the great Ingrid Bergman I made an Advent Calendar.


I have purchased in the past card board box calenders filled with chocolates and have done the
wooden boxes with hidden treasures but I was tired of the same old thing.

So I decided to look on the web and found a couple of inspirations!


I loved one of them but it wouldn't get here in time.....

I decided to make one. It's simple but it's cute and the kids love it!


Do you keep the tradition of an Advent Calendar?

This one I almost bought but wasn't going to get here in time.
Isn't it cute?
Lots of room to put lots of goodies.

This one is my favorite. I wish I had more time to copy this idea.
Isn't it fabulous?

Here is mine.



Have fun decorating!

Take care, Claudia

Ciao Claudia! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and introducing me to your lovely blog. Your advent calendar is so cute! We always had a little paper one that we used every Christmas. I haven't seen anything as creative as the one you made and the ones from Pottery Barn. Thanks for sharing!
