WOYWW 173 – a sneaky peek


I have NO IDEA why this year I seem to have jumped the gun on Christmas.  Usually I don’t even think about it till the first week in December. Maybe I am finally getting tired of the madness of December every year.  In any case I had an idea for a special Advent calendar after making the little ornament card last week and wanted to see if I could make it work.  I did, and it turned out better than I had hoped – but you will have to read the post from yesterday to hear the story of how DD saw it and her idea of an improvement. Ha!

I am so nearly done – I thought I might put the finishing touches on it yesterday but no such luck. Here it is on my desk – can you get a sense of exactly how big it is?

You are really only seeing the bottom 1/2 there.  But what lurks behind the ornaments?  Nothing, YET, but you can see there is room for a chocolate coin at the very least:

Now it’s time to pop round to Julia’s and desk hop, although time is short in the run up to the UKS CyberCrop, with so much still to do – I’ll make my best effort to hop over to your desk this morning and file away the inspiration for when I’m not quite so stressed out!

  11. Hi Mary Ann. Your Advent calendar looks lovely and quite different. What fun. Although I know about them, we never had one as kids, so I don’t have a sense of attachment to them. Perhaps that’s a pity because they are so very appealing to look at, particularly yours.
    Enjoy your week between WOYWW posts.
