Simple and cheap.
Did I get your attention?
I had these 12×12 boards from last Christmas. Remember what I did with them?
Ryan cut out a bunch of them for me when I had a whim. (Love him.) I used them for gifts last year. But, I didn’t use them all.
Fast forward to this year. I’ve been seeing lots of advents around the blogosphere. I really like them, but I didn’t really want to put candy or little gifts in them. When I was growing up, we just moved a little mouse through each of the days. That was exciting enough. We didn’t need no gifts on our advent. We were tough. 😉
So, I came up with this idea after getting inspiration from a scrapbook store. I’m sure lots of other people have done it, too.
I made a bunch of these to give to Ryan’s family while we were in Memphis. I think they were well received.
Do you advent?
