Sleep in Heavenly Peace

Oh Advent Calendar. You are/were so much more work than I expected. That's why I reluctantly decided to set you aside until next year.


Maybe I'll have more motivation in a few months.

This will not be encouraging, but I have a similar project that I just abandoned for good last year when I moved. My kids are all adults;-) (We had many other Advent traditions, though.)
It will be beautiful when you finish it, and then it will be ready next December 1.

this is beautiful! I made little felt stockings three years ago for advent that turned out to be a much larger project as well. I embellished each stocking with either buttons, embroidery, needle felting, etc. Anyhow, (thoretically) we put a slip of paper in one each day that tells an activity that we are going to do together (our focus during the season is to spend time together as a family rather than gifts). So,the year that I made them, I thought I would just whip them up and we would begin our daily activities. It didn't quite unfold how I imagined it would. I finished them up on Christmas day and had to tuck them away for the following year. :)

I have been searching for an advent calender like that for a few years, it is wonderful! Did you come up with it yourself, or use a pattern?
Just found your blog, enjoying it!

I would love to make an Advent calendar like this. 2012, baby! I echo everyone else's questions, is there a pattern for this or did you just make it up with your creative genius? Either way, it's so cute and I want to make one!
