Little Snippets Advent Calendar-Published in CraftingIreland Issue 5 -

When I saw that Crafting Ireland magazine were looking for submissions on the theme "The Night before Christmas"  it got me thinking.   Well, as a child I always hankered after an Advent calendar but such fancy ideas were not welcome in our house.  Spending good money on a calendar that lasted for one month only!!!  What!?!  When you could get a FREE calendar for the whole year from the local bank......how things have changed - I guess the banks won't be handing out very many calendars for 2012!!
So this year I made my own Advent calendar using a selection of MME papers that I have collected over the past 2 or 3 years.  The centre piece is a 12" by 12" sheet with a beautiful Santa on it.  I surrounded him with tiny pocket that have concertinaed sides.  They are closed with sticky velcro and they can be opened and a small treat popped inside.  I used the Tim H vintage alphabet die for the dates and the Weathered Clock die for the clock.  Please excuse the shadows  -  it was a very sunny day!

Anyway my calendar was published in Issue 5 click here to read and I finally have my Advent Calendar to hang up on 1st December!
Don't forget my Giveaway!
