The liturgical season of Advent began on Sunday. This is a season of waiting and anticipation of the arrival of Christ on Christmas.
As a child I have vague memories of opening little paper doors on a glittery display as we counted down the days until Christmas. This year I am working on our advent calendar. I'm making a variation of this advent calendar and so far (I have two days done) it's looking pretty good! Instead of felt, I'm using paper and mod-podge. So, with Advent and the anticipation and preparation for Christmas underway, some of my creative juices are heading towards projects rather than blogging... I'm sure you understand!
I will post the project when I'm a little farther along. In the meantime, if you have an older child -one that can handle scissors, intricate patterns and glue- you may want to print this out and enlarge it as a great craft project during the advent season. I particularly like that it incorporates all of the symbols of the Christmas Season and ties them back to the True meaning for Christmas.
