Advent Calendar!!

Gosh I can't believe that it has been nearly two weeks since I last posted...ooh wah the time has just flown.  Anyway I have been busy creating.   For a long time now I have wanted to make/decorate an advent calendar.  I knew that it wouldn't interest my son as he way past that so after discussing it with the classroom teacher and getting the OK this is what I came up with. 

Here are a few closeups

I used the new Kaiser advent calendar kit together with papers from the Kaiser Christmas Carnival collection.  My tree is a Christmas decoration and the santa is a pick that I purchased from Spotlight and just removed the skewer from the base.  I filled each drawer with a candy cane and a chocolate coin.  When I presented it to the class yesterday  the children were just delighted and couldn't wait until today to start the calendar.

Thanks for dropping by and having a look.  Have a wonderful day.



  1. o I so love yours with all it's fun and colour - mine is so boring now cause it needs more colour and dimension - bling on my tree I say!

  2. Karen this is such a beautiful Advent Calendar. True Christmas colours!

  3. Oh Karen, this is GORGEOUS! I don't blame the kiddies for hassling you each afternoon to open a drawer! What a wonderful job!

  4. Hi Karen - I've been having trouble accessing your blog. Not your fault - my computer is 8 years old and getting temperamental! Can't wait for mum and dad to come in Feb with a new one. Anyway, finally got it working alright today and I LOVE your Advent calendar! I'm having much fun getting back into scrapping land, and hope to "play" with you all again some time :)
