Last weekend I decorated the tree and put up our advent calendar. I have to admit that with time constraints the advent is certainly not what I had in mind and really everything is probably a bit too minimal but it will do for this year. After paging through the latest issue of The Simple Things Mag I was quite liking the idea of a bauble-tastic wall tree. I think I still need to make a star to go on the wall behind the tree.
I must admit I have fallen a bit behind with the ShareAdvent. I have made a few of my own Christmassy activities. Day 1 was “decorate the tree” – I have got that far at least. Hopefully I will be able to catch up over the week.
For decorations I used wooden beads, copper tags and air-dry clay stars with glitter rolled in.
