I don’t like to think about crafts. Planning them makes me shiver. So, when the whim strikes, I plunge in without pattern or really much of an idea. This craft began yesterday with the thought: “I should make an advent calendar.” Scott carefully reminded me that tomorrow was Dec. 1. The gauntlet thrown, I walked to the craft closet, grabbed random items and began cutting strips of construction paper. No idea what I was going to do with them. Here is my finished product.
Fancy-schmancy, I know. Seriously, my craft ability is equal to a 2nd grader’s. Thankfully, Norah thinks I’m amazing because I can use scissors.
Each envelope contains a small surprise–I didn’t buy anything. I found objects around the house: a button, jingle bell, seashell, bead, pebble, pecan. Norah loves collecting these little treasures and sorting them in an egg carton.
