Advent Calendar

My oldest is at the age where we can start doing some fun stuff for Christmas.  One thing that I’ve been thinking would be fun is having an advent calendar.  Something to help them countdown the days:  a fun surprise for each day; and hopefully an opportunity to learn the true meaning of Christmas, the fun, magical parts of Christmas, and the true spirit of Christmas…giving.  I’ve seen some really cute advent calendars at different shops, but I’ve decided to step out and make my own.  Who doesn’t like a fun, little seasonal project right?  So, I’ll be pulling out (and dusting off) my sewing machine and hopefully in a week or so you’ll see the finished product!

Maybe you have thought about doing the same.  So, here are a few that I think are too cute!  Check back tomorrow to see my ideas for each of the 25 days!

Just love the Santa with the cute little legs!

Love the niches with the gifts!


Yeah for vintage feel!


Instead of garland…advent!
Sophisticated idea from Pottery Barn with the ornaments and tags

Sophisticated look for a spouse or friend

Simple envelopes, stickers, rope/twine, and clothespins


Love the little drawers! 

And just a reminder….if you haven’t signed up for November’s giveaway make sure you do that!  The last day to sign up for the November giveaway will be Sunday the 27th!  I will announce the winner on Monday the 28th along with the December giveaway (which will be only a 2 day giveaway so the winner can enjoy the holiday goodies during the holidays!  And it’s a REALLY good one!).  So, leave a comment, ‘LIKE’ the Haven Facebook page, and ‘SHARE’ the website/facebook page on your Facebook page!
