How is your advent calendar coming along? I am just barely keeping pace with my own assignments (seriously - I finished my ornaments in the wee-est of the wee hours of the morning today). However, it is very satisfying to have a few ornaments to stuff into those little pockets.
I started my ornaments out with four gifts (I love how it looks like there are presents under the tree on the Inchmark advent), a stocking, the star, a dove, and a baby Jesus, laying in the manger. The baby Jesus ornament was always my very favorite on the tree growing up.
Ready for some beautiful inspiration? This is an advent-in-progress by Katie at So Happy.
It seriously makes me want to scrap my advent and start over, copying her step by step. I love everything about the tree. Oh, well ... no time to start over now. Must plug along.
You can also gather some ornament inspiration from Flickr user, Angela Allen. I like her colors and use of buttons on the ornaments.
Ready for this week's assignment?
- Sew on all 24 buttons
- Make 8 more ornaments
