flashback friday- 2009 christmas garland

I have been wanting to update my blog, post about things that happened months ago that I never got around to blogging. So, this new feature is called "Friday Flashback." It might happen some times on days other than Friday, but who knows.

Natalie and I found the idea for this darling advent garland in a Martha Stewart kids magazine years ago. We bought socks at after Christmas sales and everything sat in a box in storage until this year. It was fun to make, it was obviously easy, but took a lot of time one Friday night. I made it on my bed while watching a movie. I love how it turned out. The idea of course is to put a treat and/or idea for a Christmas activity for the day and look inside the sock each morning . I think we did it for a few days. I am looking forward to this tradition for many more years to come.

  1. That's a great idea. Just might have to steal it. I wonder if there are any Christmas socks out there still? Mmmm . . . it might have to wait 2 years.


Love to hear from you
