My very first Advent Calendar!

Believe it or not, even at my (ahem) advanced age, I never, every had an Advent Calendar.  I secretly coveted those of my friends in school.  I came close dozens of times to buying one of my very own.  I also came close more dozens of times making my own.  But, as is always the case, a combination of procrastination and my pesky lack of focus delayed me past a reasonable deadline.

Then, this came in the mail:

My first, very own, lovely, wonderful Advent Calendar!  I love it!  Gifted to me by the eminently talented, lovely and muy compasivo Chicken Mama!

You are the BEST!  Plus, what magic did you use to find the time to make this?


  1. Me, too! Me, too! Me, too! But I wasn't allowed to blog about mine until the others went out. (Geesh, hope I'm not jumping the gun . . . I'll be in trouble if I am. Ooops.)

    1. Mama Pea - You can't be in trouble 'cause I let the cat out of the bag! I really don't know how she does it all. I really don't.

  2. OMG, that is SOOOO cool! Chicken Mama ROCKS!

  3. How cute! My hubs is a lapsed catholic and loved those. Now we have a nice advent wreath, which I blogged about. We did those when the kids were little, fun!

  4. The advent calendars at our home when we were children usually arrived from family in England...the anticipation of such a simple thing was so loved and enjoyed! How wonderful for you!

  5. An advent calendar was always a special thing when we were children! Enjoy the build up to the joy of Christmas.
