We each got assigned a partner and the idea was to send a little gift (preferably handmade) for each of the advent days. My partner is Sandie from Sandie's Patch, and she has sent me the most amazing advent calendar:
Isn't it just gorgeous?!!
It has pride of place in the conservatory....
So now I am looking forward to the 1st December when I can start opening all the lovely parcels, I'll post a pic everyday to show you what I got.
I sent my parcel for Sandie today by courier so she should get it tomorrow, I am a a bit anxious now though as my one isn't as pretty as the one Sandie has sent me!! I just hope she likes what I have done for her, I have spent the last few weeks making things (I think about 18 of the 25 I made in the end) and have enjoyed putting it together so much.
Today I've also made a start on decorating for Christmas, I collected some holly and ivy from the stables and when I got home decided to put it straight up so it's beginning to look a bit like Christmas here!!
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend....
