Phew, it’s a relief to have Andrew and Sophia’s advent calendars done. This year I did it up a little differently. Kirsten and I went to a Scandinavian shop and saw ready-made boards that had Jul nisser (X-mas elves) at the top with ribbon attached, so you could clip each package to the ribbon. Here is my version, I decided to forgo the nisser and use a squirrel motif. I had some scrap foam core that I glued the image to, so it’s nice and rigid. An unfolded paper-clip taped to the back makes for a picture hanger. I was so happy to have just enough ribbon on hand. Now back to show prep!
