I am WAY behind and you have all posted such wonderful things recently!! Way too much awesomeness for me to comment on each thing.
Sorry to all those whose personal lives get judged. People suck sometimes. I was judged because I was a teen parent and a very single one to boot!! Now my daughter is a teenager and most people in my group of friends have kids under the age of 7! It's kind of weird....
Not sure if I have already entered in the challenge but here's one just in case... The first gift I sent to my partner in the 12 Days of Christmas swap is an advent calendar.
Here is the back:
I also made some peppermint bark using a recipe posted by missingwillow as inspiration
Finally I made my daughter an advent calendar this year.
The one above is made with paper but this one I used washi tape.
I filled it with a DIY charm bracelet. Today she got the bracelet and on every other day she will get a new charm to add to it.
I didn't get to the birthday countdown calendar I had on my to do list before her upcoming December birthday so I hope this will make up for it!!! Especially since they now have three advent calendars to open, this and the LEGO one, one with little chocolates, and my stepmom made them a really neat one filled with little goodies.
