Happy, happy, Friday! I am so happy that it is the weekend because I can’t wait to get crafty this weekend making an advent calendar! I have been so inspired by the amazing advents created by our Creative Team, including this one that I have the pleasure of sharing today from Jean Manis. It’s so bright and cheery and I think it would be really fun to create something similar with my kiddo. Check it out…

How festive does this advent look? I love how Jean created a twelve-day advent and arranged them on her cookie sheet in the shape of a tree. So adorable! Jean used our Matchbox die to create her little boxes and embellished with our coordinating Matchy-Penguin and Matchy-Snowman dies. I think these would be really fun for a little one to help with. I know mine would enjoy helping to assemble these cute little critters! Jean also used our Matchy Backgrounds – Holiday stamps on the remaining boxes — super cute!

Jean filled her advent with fun activities to do together. I adore this idea!

And of course you can’t forget the sweets!

Thank you so much, Jean, for creating such a wonderful advent calendar! I cannot wait to get crafty. I hope you all have enjoyed our Advent Calendar Week. When you’ve created yours, come share it with us on our Facebook Page or our Fans of Taylored Expressions Facebook Group. Have a joyful weekend!
