I took it upon myself to make a few (that was my original plan, I’m up to 13 requested right now) Advent/Christmas calenders for some friends and their kids.
I don’t know how you celebrate Christmas in other countries other than I know that Sweden is one of the few places that actually gets their presents on the 24th of December. We, in Sweden, have this tradition where kids get chocolate calenders with a tiny piece of chocolate for every day starting the 1th of December all the way until the 24th. This might be a general thing though. As I said earlier, I’m not sure!
Anyway, I thought it woud be fun to mix it up a bit and made a calender for a friend a couple of years ago (it’s in my studio), so you can put whatever you want in the tiny pockets. And the idea sort of re-emerged this year. So now I’m on my third for this year and still got at least 7 more I need to finish before December 1st. Wish me luck!
