Scrapshots - Advent Calendar

Advent Calendar

I finally finished my advent calendar. I got the idea from a post by the very talented Leeann Pearce ( It didn't take too long to do the actual work but it's been a busy week socially and the printers tray only arrived on Tuesday. This makes me 2 days late but oh well. It's Karla's first advent calendar so I'm pretty sure she won't mind.

I fell in love with the printers tray the minute I saw it on Bidorbuy. It's a little bit small and I will definitely make a bigger one next year but I simply love the shape and layout.

It's made of dark wood so any embellishments would have disappeared into the shadows so I (actually Henk) sprayed it white. I added some cute embellishments, date numbers and a little note with instructions for each day. Karla will open the notes and have to sing a Christmas carol, give mommy or daddy a hug or kiss or be rewarded with a Christmas treat. Every morning that day's date will be removed so that we can see how many days are left until Christmas.

I can't wait for her to get up tomorrow morning so I can show it to her.
