After enjoying the wonderful posts on The Virtual Advent Tour, I was inspired. So many of the contributors shared great projects and I wanted to do them all. That's an impossibility; but I chose one to start.
I don't have my own photos of the project, but I made a calendar journal. Here's a LINK to the directions I used for the project, and one of their photos. I know I started a bit late, but it's a revolving calendar - no beginning, no end. So - no problem.
I made a few changes of my own to the project.
I used pretty patterned papers, you know, scrapbooking papers, instead of post cards. I chose the colors to give the feeling of the seasons change as the months move on.
I didn't have a box to use, but I had an empty cereal box that I turned into a box to fit. And I covered it with some pretty rice papers.
It sits nicely in my secretary, handy for me to update daily, and I smile when I look at it because it reminds me of the great book bloggers I visit. It is also a project that will become more precious as time passes. As I fill in each year's note it becomes a time capsule.
