Advent #1

Telluride Advent Calendar

Above is my inspiration… an Advent Calender i saw at pottery barn last year that i fell in love with! So i set out a plan last December to make my own felt advent calender. Mine certainly isn’t as detailed as the Pottery barn tree, but its simple, homemade, hand embroidered, and made with love, a perfect gift for my sweet and simple little boy!

So here is our felt tree….

we hung it on Harvey’s closet door and although we aren’t gonna put a gift in everyday we are gonna use it to count down the days til christmas and we are gonna use it to faciliate our conversation of Advent and this joyus season. then maybe next year when he is a bit bigger to understand each box will have something more than a bible verse.

We buy cool little gifts and hide and wrap them and they love it and look forward to the next hidden treat.
