Day One

This year, with E being bigger and with JJ now here, I decided to make my own advent calendar. I collected jars and modge podged them with glitter so they sparkle like the snow outside (ah, the romantic notion of snow… I’m going to be glowering at it come mid-January). 

Day 12




I took old business cards and pasted them to felt so the blank side faced up. On the other side is the daily Bible reading as this is our tradition. Read the Scripture, pray, and then the gift can be opened. I still feel like an amateur at arts and crafts, but I think I snagged a good bit of XP in this department. I’ll probably try to modify the jars for next year.
