It's November... and you know what that means....

Time to start thinking about this year's Advent Calendar! Here are some of the Advent ideas and tutorials we're loving this year.

Whether you prefer small trinkets, chocolate or activities, I'm sure we can all agree that counting down to Christmas helps carry that holiday spirit right through the month of December. An Advent calendar doesn't have to be complicated, even the simplest are extra-special when made with love.

Here are our simple ideas from the last 2 years - a garland of colourful bitty bags, a tower of washi tape decorated boxes.
