so that's what we are going to do this year. there will be an advent calendar near some christmas stationary, and each day we can write a note and take a chocolate. i think it will be a great way to look back at our holiday season after it's over. it will also be a nice way to write something positive each day.
here's the pretty stocking [and it's lined too, which is perfect for putting notes in]:
well... i better get back to my art history studying *sigh* i'm so not feeling studious/focused lately. i just want to start xmas projects, watch movies snuggled in a blanket, start reading new books, etc.... case in point: i cut out stockings today to make 1-2 more [for harlow and maybe adam too]. i already had the little felt cutouts done last year, but just never got around to making the actual stocking. so...i will hopefully be finishing it this weekend so it can go up along with the rest of the holiday decor.
here's what it looks like so far:
