Okay so I had seen a similar project somewhere, twopeas I believe, and just had to have a take at it. I created an advent calendar out of little envelopes, mini clothes pins, Teresa Collins Noel collection (Love this collection I have created so much with it), some stickles, some dollar store snowflake ornaments, some jillibean soup twine, and a thrift store picture frame. I'm not going to lie...I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the way it turned out. I struggled a little with creating something different on each of the 25 envelopes and yes I love some more then others but over all I think it is beautiful and I'm sure that it will be around for years to come. I didn't have it completed until after the 1st of Dec, it was the 5th to be exact when I finished it :(, so I didn't put treats in the envelopes for my kiddos like I had originally planned but I will for sure be adding treats to each day next year. I hope all of you are enjoying the holiday season!
