Last year I blogged about our traditional advent calendar which we have happily used for many years and will do so again this year as well. You can find pictures of it here. This year, sweet girl will be away at college until December 11th, so I made her a special advent calendar for days 1 - 10 which she can take back to her dorm this weekend. I numbered ten glassine bags and inserted a folded sheet of paper, trimmed with scalloped scissors and stamped with Christmas sentiments, to hide the contents. So even though she's away, she won't have to miss out on a tradition she has always looked forward to.
