Reindeer advent

Today I got to open two advent calendars, both courtesy of my sister.

When we were children, my sister and I had an advent calendar, made by our Mum, with individual bags filled with a treat for us each day. When my sister got married with last year, she got given the calendar. My advent last year went by with no chocolate! This year I opened up two parcels to find two calendars, one my sister had made and the other she had bought.

The homemade calendar was inspired by a boden blog, but instead of numbered luggage labels, the numbers have been written on with 3D fabric paint. The shop bought calendar came from Davids Tea.

The first day of advent was filled with a minty herbal tea and some fuzzy nail polish (the kids at school are going to love it). No chocolate though- fingers crossed for tomorrow!
