I’m finally posting pics of the advent calendar–the idea taken from SouleMama. I drove across the water to Michael’s, so I could find a store full of little boxes and crafting things, thinking option one would be the little drummer tree and option two would be the watchmaker tins wreath, but they had no such tiny containers. The smallest sizes they had were three inches wide. Just by placing 25 three-inch containers into the cart, I could tell it wasn’t going to work. I thought about driving to the Container Store, but it was supposed to snow (and look! it did.), so instead I bought felt and little, tiny glitter candy, snowflakes, and ribbon trims to decorate the stockings I made. It took me the whole day to make this, which was more fun than I thought it could be. I turned on a movie, drank hot apple cider, snacked on toffee, and Ryan made me lunch and served me dinner!
