my first holiday project

so remember how i was working on a holiday project the other day? well i'm finished and i wanted to share, i made an advent calendar! i'm super excited because i'm hoping this starts a new holiday tradition for my little family and because it's done before thanksgiving! here it is...
i used one of our carly tee designs framed metal clip strips (actually our very first prototype) to hold the majority of the advent tags. inside the folded tags are holiday activities for our family to do together like holiday shopping, baking, movie nights, etc. and then i cut some of the tags smaller to place on the bags & boxes of treats. i also added jars of goodies just for "looks" because i solemnly swear i won't sneak into those (until i do...hee, hee). and because they were already made and i felt like sharing, here's the link to my advent pdf pages 1, 2 & 3.

hope you had a great weekend! stay tuned for a fun announcement tomorrow!
xo, carly
