Let the Holiday season begin

How did you spend this year's first advent? we started preparing the house for the holidays. Pulled out some favourite decorations, made the outside look pretty, planned Christmas activities all the while listening to the Vienna Boy's Choir create a festive mood. I also managed to put the finishing touches on this year's Advent Calendar, and just in time. This year's version features a mix of hockey cards and of course chocolate.

The Details? This IKEA fabric caught my eye last year, and I had to have it, as I knew it would be the perfect backdrop for an Advent Calendar. Add in some hockey cards, every 8-year old boy's favourite, and some chocolate, and voila, our 2015  calendar.


  1. oh my gosh, what an amazing advent calendar idea!! I bet he is absolutely loving it. And that fabric is really great, what a clever use for it!

  2. What a fantastic Advent Calendar! So much fun for both you and the kiddos :) I thought I was doing pretty well with the Opal Advent Calendar (an advent full of yarn!!) but this is seriously so much cooler!
