No, right? So here it is.<br /><br /><br /><br /><img src="/images/Blog2013/12-December/Advent-calendar-2013-1.jpg" alt="Advent calendar 2013 1" /><br /><br /><br /><br /> I used a mix of brown paper bags and gold and white striped bags from Target to hold the gifts and activity cards. For the numbers, I used scalloped tags from Staples, my Making Memories foam number stamps, a Christmas mistletoe stamp and a bit of washi tape.<br /><br /><br /><br /> I folded over all the bags and punched a whole, then threaded through some white ribbon so that the bags could hang from a piece of string on our banister.<br /><br /><br /><br /><img src="/images/Blog2013/12-December/Advent-calendar-2013-2.jpg" alt="Advent calendar 2013 1" /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Here they all are ready to be hanged up.<br /><br /><br /><br /><img src="/images/Blog2013/12-December/Advent-calendar-2013-3.jpg" alt="Advent calendar 2013 1" /><br /><br /><br /><br /> I put a pine garland over top of the packages to make it a bit more Christmassy.<br /><br /><br /><br /><img src="/images/Blog2013/12-December/Advent-calendar-2013-4.jpg" alt="Advent calendar 2013 1" /><br /><br /><br /><br /> Here is B discovering his calendar on the first morning.<br /><br /><br /><br /><img src="/images/Blog2013/12-December/Advent-calendar-2013-5.jpg" alt="Advent calendar 2013 1" /><br /><br /><br /> Thu, 12 Dec 2013 14:16:07 GMT Katja @ Shift Ctrl ART /Blogpost/umuv
