Growing up we always had a felt advent calendar to count down until Christmas. I spent a lot of time looking online for one, but they all looked pretty cheesy. My mom didn't have ours any more so I decided to make one for Mike & Hudson as my Christmas present to them.
I used several sites to get ideas, but Homemade By Jill was the most helpful. Instead of just doing ornaments to count down, I wanted to make it more meaningful so I tied it in with a Jesse Tree Devotional from Ann Voskamp. I loved how it turned out. I'm so excited to make this a part of our Christmas traditions.
