  2. Beautiful advent calendars!

  3. You go for it! I don’t think I have ever had an advent calendar. I will have to share yours 🙂

  4. Wow, you are very glever making an advent calendar. It’s nearly as old as my sister (she will be 30 in Janaury)!

  5. Gorgeous! What’s inside all the little parcels? Chocolate maybe?
