It’s that time of year again where I really start thinking about what I am going to do for an Advent Calendar. The ones that I have made in the past have been wonderful but for some reason I have this itch to create a new Advent Calendar. The first year I made an Advent Calendar out of canvas boards and mini envelopes that I made. This Advent Calendar was a labor of love and at the end of the month I threw them both away. I was just never really happy with how they turned out.
The second year I created an Advent Calendar using magnets and little aluminum boxes that would stick on a cookie sheet. You can see this Advent Calendar here and I am not sure why I didn’t keep using it. This Advent Calendar was really cute and the numbers took me days to create. I still have this Advent Calendar all packed away.
Last year I purchased a cut file from SVG cuts and had another labor of love Advent Calendar! I’m not sure which Advent Calendar took me the longest but I do know I had some moments where I was ready to throw everything in the trash with all three of my Advent Calendars.
After saying all this I am not sure why I am even contemplating making a new Advent Calendar this year but I am. Maybe I like torturing myself but I have decided that the White Pines paper from Close To My Heart would be perfect for this project. I just can’t decide which Advent Calendar I want to make this year. My choices are these cute little Christmas Trees or this cute little house set. If you were me which Advent Calendar would you torture yourself with?
