I didn’t have time to work on my December Daily last night. Aww…
Never fear I’ll catch up tonight. Hopefully…
There is a dishwasher to unload, dirty dishes piled in the sink, five baskets of laundry to fold, one teen girl away on a mission trip and one teen boy sick on the sofa.
That makes today the perfect time to share a recent Christmas Pocket Letter I made for my dear friend and swap partner Elizabeth from the GirlyGirlsAttic.
Instead of a normal Christmas or Winter themed pocket letter I came up with the crazy idea of creating an Advent pocket letter.
Yes, there was a bit of math involved with planning the pockets.
But, I’m rather excited at how it turned out.
December 1st – 8th~
I used mainly Teresa Collins Santa’s List collection with it’s fabulous Santa images, bold prints and fabulous mix of embellishments.
Some of the pockets are simple cards while others are scored and folded over.
That Santa in the middle was being quite naughty when I tried to make him.
I lost count on how many attempts it took to get the final one, but I think he makes a great addition to the Countdown.
As you can see some of the pockets are filled with chocolates, others with scrapbooking goodies and some with the story of the birth of Jesus.
I thought Elizabeth would really appreciate that.
It also crossed my mind that she could use this for a simple December Daily afterwards as well.
She could easily slip in small photos, Instax pictures or special memories from each day.
Of course, she’d have to eat all that candy first!
