**Advent Calendar**

It's finished! Horray! So pleased with the final results on this one. It was the one project that I wanted to complete before the end of the year and I managed it. (And only three days late too!)

The frame I found at savers for $7. The Linen I bought online through Duckcloth (so lovely!). The small floral fabric on the inside of the pockets was kindly donated by a friend and the small pins were a fab find on etsy.

The stamped numbers were a steal at spotlight for only $15. I used some ink that I bought years ago at a crafting festival in Canada. All in all, quiet a cheap project.

In each little pocket there are chocolates or decorations for Annie to add to our tree. I plan on bringing this calendar out every year for our family to enjoy!

Thank you Lisa for the inspiration!

Absolutely beautiful Em. Well done on getting it done on time with all you're juggling at the moment. A lovely tradition has started. x

Em, this is simply gorgeous. Well done! Two children and a homemade advent calendar - you rock, girl!

It's also good to hear that the linen was so nice from Duckcloth. I had been wondering where to buy quality linen from, so thanks for the tip.
