Christmas and Advent



Hello, it's a busy time of year but also a time when we need to slow down to really enjoy so I hope you put the brakes on and just enjoy a moment of simple pleasure when needed!

Above is a a quick collage I did for art journal journey using old xmas calendars and cards. 
Below is a beautiful sky I took one evening in November, I love these end of year skies the best!



For advent I painted and decorated this wooden house


and each day my kids receive a little box filled with treats. I had lots of fun making this and filling all the little boxes, Lulu especially adores this! 



Best wishes and love to all

Your Advent boxes look so fascinating, what is in them, I wonder. There must be a lot of excitement in your house each morning, I think.
I like the way you have used old Christmas cards in your collage, that's awfully clever and works really well.
