A season of GIVING not GETTING!

Hi Peeps....
I've been meaning to post my Giving Advent Calendar that I created.

The idea behind my Advent Calendar is to teach kids....
this is a season of GIVING not GETTING.

For the pockets I used a mixture of
Canvas and Burlap
Mini Pocket

I folded the shapes in half
and embellished with LOTS of Petaloo Flowers.

No two pockets are alike!

Each pocket has it's own
which can be personalized to your family.
Some ideas....
Bring Coffee to a Bell Ringer
Donate Dog/Cat food to an Animal Shelter
Make a card for someone
ie: elderly or military person
Drop off a toy to be given to a needy child etc.

When talking about this with my 19 year old son
he said he remembered when we did this
and it's one of his BEST CHRISTMAS MEMORIES!!

Hope you enjoyed my Advent Calendar!

This is a wonderful project - I love all your special touches and would love to find the time to make a couple for our youngest grandchildren. Maybe next year....
