Yep, that's right, I'm joining in another swap. Some might think that's crazy after just having a baby, but I couldn't resist. (And can you believe that Lovebug is now 1 month old?! I am having a hard time coming to terms with that!!)
So the point of this swap was so send a package to your partner to arrive at the beginning of December. Packages are to be numbered and one package opened at a time, one for each day leading up to Christmas Day, with one big package for Christmas Day. So I figure I'll combine posts and I will share what I sent my swap partner and what my partner sent me. (No, it's not the same person.)
The package I put together went to Nina (Maegwin on Ravelry). For Day 1, I sent her a handmade Advent Calendar. I'm pretty proud of this one. I put a lot of time into replicating the Advent Calendar that my grandmother made for our family. I chose to put a different backing on it and to do the pockets differently, but I think it turned out beautifully! :)
With a holiday fabric creating the back of the calendar and the pockets to hold the ornaments, I can't wait to finish my own. :)
Here are all the goodies wrapped and waiting to be opened.
