November 30th and of course the completely brilliant, well planned, surprise filled advent calender I had promised myself to make hadn't yet materialised so I set to with what I had to hand. This was; a pile of envelopes, a large Baileys on ice, pens, bakers twine and tiny pegs (thank you Tom). It's quite fun I guess and the different little illustrations make me smile. (The robin is my favourite, I think... or the wreath maybe). Each day has a note inside with something festive to make/do together on. I'm sort of making it up as I go along -  but so far we have made special cakes, started colouring a HUGE Christmas tree poster (22 pages big, infact) and written a letter to Santa Claus. If I run out of ideas then maybe I'll throw some chocolate coins in, too.

  1. Love this! I think the robin is my favourite too - or perhaps the mince pie! Love the thought of spending an evening drawing, with a glass of something good in hand too. x

  2. Beautifully creative and a real action calendar! I have a felt tree on which we hang tree decorations from the numbered pockets. Terribly predictable in comparison! Jean
