Advent Calendar Ideas



Christmas is here! Christmas is here!!

I'm so excited. I LOVE Christmas time! Not only is it a special, sparkly time of year, but it's also the time when we celebrate the birth of the greatest man to walk on earth. I just love Christmas time.

One thing that I started last year and will continue this year is using an advent calendar to make the countdown to Christmas especially fun. 

And can I say I really love my advent calendar. I made it with my friend in Texas. It's so super adorable. And really easy to make.


But that's not the purpose of this post. I wanted to give you some ideas for your advent calendar!
