Journal Your Christmas 2010 - Countdown

Just 20 Sleeps to Christmas day.

Our family has used various methods of counting down to Christmas day. The advent candles each Sunday in before Christmas in church. Paper advent calenders with pictures behind each door.

The felt advent calendars I have filled for the children each Christmas for years. I purchased these just after Christmas one year from a garden centre in a sale. I always filled the little pockets for small gifts or sweets.  Last year I decorated this box of drawers set with Basic Grey Wassail papers, the draws take quite good size gifts.

This year being the first Christmas since Andrew, Catherine and Emily went to university I decided to send each of them an advent calendar through the post. It's always lovely to receive post when you are away from home, especially in this age of mobiles and emails. I spent sometime shopping around for something I thought each of them would appreciate. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures before posting them off.
