Christmas is coming, part 1.

I love christmas. I think it's my favourite time of year. And I know this post has nothing to do with food, but hey, I do other things than cook, and I'm sure you do too. The inspiration for this advent calender came from Oh, hello friend, you are loved. Really it's just some paper bags and some pegs, but I think it looks pretty good. I've got it strung up on the wall so that Brent can open a bag each day during December and find a present.

I haven't filled all of the bags yet, but I've got a couple of days before they're ready to be opened. I hope Brent hasn't been peeking while I've been at work! I'll let you know how it goes...

  5. Hermia- Thank you!

    Claire- I've filled the bags with chocolates and tokens and special things like that! We don't have Thanksgiving here, so Christmas is my only thing to look forward too!
