I actually have not heard of Advent till recent years when it kept popping up in the blogs that I subscribed to. I thought it sounded like a fun way to usher in Christmas so I bought Truth in the Tinsel as a guide. We lasted all of 3 days. As you might guess, consistency is not exactly my strength. Anyway, I decided to pick it up again this year. We might actually get halfway through this time.
On a side note, how pretty are all the Advent calendars craft on Pinterest. I wish I can post up a picture of my Advent calendar but I haven’t gotten round to it yet. And tomorrow is the 1 December when we’re supposed to start. All I know in my head is that ours is going to be a really simple one simply because of space (okay, and time) constraint. I have to keep reminding myself that aesthetics should play second fiddle to the activities and meaning behind it all. But I do wish I can have the space to make some pretty ones.
