Advent Calendar 2008 // Almost finished

Newer Older

Yeah yeah yeah I'm almost done with it ! I got a little help from my mom who sewed the little pockets. I embroidered them all, sewed the ribbons & trims & buttons, and she sewed them all.
I just want to add a little something at the bottom, and I have to add the remaining little papers (activities). (Nov. 30th 2008)

    Wonderful...and I like your idea of activities and not candies. We have been doing a page in an Advent coloring book each day at bedtime. It is a great book and nice time together.
