I am busy at work this weekend preparing oddles of holiday goodies that will be here to inspire you soon, including an advent calendar I have been dreaming about for months! I’ve even enlisted the help of Sufjan to get me in the Christmas mood.

In the meantime here is an Advent Calendar that you absolutely cannot go wrong with… It is so simple and pure genius!

To recreate: Grab a pack of paper bags, stamp numbers onto the front and tie off the tops with pretty twine- don’t forget to stash a little goody inside each one. You could stuff them in a suitcase like Anette did above or send them off in lunch boxes for school age children.
