Advent Calendar


Only a couple days late! I finally finished my advent calendar that I started last month. I had to muster up some ambition to glue together all of the loose bells that were jingling in my crafting bag! A couple of really neat girls organized a super-duper craft night in November, and it was such a blast! We all brought some treats to share and spent about six hours talking and cutting and sewing and laughing and glueing. Hip-hip-hooray to the ladies that fist-time-braved the sewing machines, and double hooray to my friend that untied all of my bells from the garland! I sewed the pockets on her calendar in return. I probably would have had to come up with something else to stick in those little pockets if she hadn't untied them all for me!


See? They turned out really cute! I had to glue them all back together on a smaller string because they all came tied on one huge bell garland. My glue gun and I are becoming the best of friends. We sewed beads on the tree to hang all the bells from. Love it.... and only 19 more days 'til Christmas!
