Although it isn’t even November, I admit that I’m already looking all the way forward to
I’ve been collecting ideas on Pinterest and thinking of new decor and adventures to create in our home this year. I’ve always loved the holidays and the advent calendar. I’m especially giddy about it this year because we have a little one (19 months old) to start sharing the season with and creating our own memories and traditions.
I made this advent calendar with our family in mind, and considering our child’s age, but of course you can personalize it to suit your family’s needs. I printed the labels on the computer and taped them to the tags with Japanese tape.
