{Our Advent Calendar}

Wendel and I are having such a blast this Holiday season squeezing in fun Christmasy things together! 

I think we've clarified that I'm a list person. I love having an organized way of knowing what I want to accomplish...and then getting to check it off! 

So this year I made a cute little advent calendar to help us get as much as possible in during the hustle and bustle! 

The advent calendar I made was very simple! 

They are just little envelopes, and then Wendel or I {we change everyday} plan something and slip the idea into the envelope. We did this last year too, so we can look back at what we did last year on the same day! 

All you need is: 

Mini coin envelopes {Staples} 
Scrapbook paper {Hobby Lobby}
Ribbon/Scrapbook Accessories {Hobby Lobby}
Scrapbook Letters- I used my Cricut {Target/Hobby Lobby}
Clothes Pins {Target}
Hot Glue/Double Sided Tape 

Then just cut, clip, paste, and decorate till your little heart's desire! 

We put our advent calendar up on our bookcase so we can gaze at it while we watch Christmas movies! is what we've been up to this Christmas season!
