Stringing Things Together, Together BY KASSANDRA There’s something truly magical about advent calendars. Counting down to Christmas, one day at a time, is one of the best joys of childhood, and looking at my kids’ excited faces in the morning is what I love most during the holiday season. Every day in December, my two daughters wake me up, all excited, begging me to go downstairs and see the advent calendar. Some days they find candy (leftover from Halloween!) while other days they find stickers, temporary tattoos or tiny figurines. Their huge smiles brighten my dark December mornings, as we go downstairs to count the days left until Christmas! CLICK IMAGE FOR TUTORIAL

Whether it’s on the four-wheeler exploring the forest grounds or running through the creek, these boys have a love for the outdoors like no other. They are always bringing back nature’s souvenirs and I am always finding ways to incorporate them into our home. Using Polaroid photos of the boys and some elements of nature, I found the perfect way to incorporate these into our holiday decor. CLICK IMAGE FOR TUTORIAL
