a little bit of christmas

I know it's early but I love christmas and this is how early we start to get ideas of things to make for present.

Each year we usually make our own advent calendar. This year I asked Melinda from paperklip to make us a lovely DIY one. this one has been decorated with japanese tape. In november I am going to randomly post each of these cards to our house so the kids can collect & decorate each one as it comes. a true test for aussie post. when the little ones are asleep each night I will write a note or instruction on each.

sing jingle bells to dad - now,
be as quiet as mice and pick mum a flower each
Let's make pancakes for breakfast

We will replace the empty spaces with christmas cards & hang the numbers in the kids room

This is the major postie - a sample we were playing with during the year. if you would like a major postie or advent calender cards too let me know as we can make them to order or a beautiful set of melindas postcards just let us know.
