Spotted! DIY Advent Calendar – make this beautiful idea yourself!

craft advent calendar - simple

I do love a pretty advent calendar – but how about making your own?
I admit – I’ve considered it in the past, but to be honest my sewing just isn’t up to scratch for such a fiddly project.

But this?

When I stumbled across it on Nostalgiecat’s blog, I thought “THIS I can do.”

And it’s SO lovely.

Not only is it easy to make – can you just imagine the excitement of seeing 24 little parcels all wrapped up, and finding the right one each day?

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
