Advents calendars are a part of the Christmas season as long as I can remember.
As a kid we always had a Advents Kalender. No matter how busy my mom was with the Christmas business in her store, she made sure we would have a calendar to count down the days until the 24.December. Christmas eve!
Little hand wrapped gifts with sweets and little special things for the Sundays.
As a teenager I started making calendars for my friends as well and later , after I had moved out, for my boyfriend and sisters . I remember one year when I lived with my now husband, I made 6 Advent calendars ! Most of my friends never had a calendar like this , maybe the chocolate one, but not handmade. I just love making them for people I care about.
I have made many different Advents calendar for my boys over the years and each child will get their own. This year is no different, even though I am so busy with making dolls. There has to be time for the calendars and I just got them ready in time, wrapping the little parcels until 2:30 am on Sunday morning( Thank you Rob for staying up with me! )
And here now the results
