As promised, I’m back with pictures of the advent calendar, which I finished none too soon on December 3. It was up and in use on the the 1st, but I still had two final ornaments to finish up and secret away into the pockets. It was a hit, with V and E taking turns each night to put an ornament up.
I’m relieved to have this project done and added into our list of Christmas traditions. I didn’t fully consider how much work 24 of everything would be. I’m glad it turned out so beautifully. Each ornament is a little treasure.
I’ve also done the usual holiday baking in the last week or so, including these lovely cookies using cookie cutters gifted to me by my very thoughtful mom.
Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you have a peaceful, joyful holiday season.
