It’s gift time, and while some of you out there did your shopping back in June, so you could actually relax before the Holidays, some of you (and all of me) didn’t.

While doing my research (read: looking at really fun Holiday gifts and crafts) I came across two fabulous ideas for handmade advent calendars – one of my favorite parts of the Holidays.

This advent calendar from Linda at Natural Suburbia, made me smile with delight. I may make one for myself!

And then there was the advent tree from the red thread blog that reminded me so much of things I used to make while living in Costa Rica (there was an abundance of tree branches just waiting to be turned into art) that I may just have to make two advent-calendars-that-aren’t-really-calendars this year!
