i made an advent calendar this year - for lovely hubby and me. a long piece of string with a paperclip and envelope for each day. i loved decorating each envelope with all those magazine pictures, postcards, stickers, pretty papers that i have held on to you for years with no purpose. i then put notes, verses, thoughts, prayers, memories and of course chocolate inside the envelopes.
i think i'll keep it and re-use it next year
