This is for my Sailor who will deploy in late November. I just found out that we have to have her Christmas gifts mailed by Nov.12 so I'm really needing to rush and I don't think well under pressure. :shock: I am trying to make her a Advent calendar and want to put really special things in each pocket so when she pulls them out they will not only feel like a heartfelt gift but, maybe make her feel like she has a little of home with her. (I'm not thinking candy because of the heat issues)
A little about her.....
She has graduated from the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA in Farsi. (I just ordered her 2 little ornaments relating to this).
Been in the Navy two years.
Loves animals (wants a Pug when she can finally have a place off base)
Loves music (sang with our city's opera for two years before the Navy bug bit her).
Loves her little Honda CRV.
Has a boyfriend stationed in Japan.
Loves movies (Rear window with Jimmy Stewart being her favorite, (which she has).
She is so much more than this but of course I'm drawing a blank right now. I of course need very small items to fit in the pockets. I thought about going with all mini ornaments so that one day she can have a small tree to put just those 25 items on. Just a thought, not firm on that at this point.
I'm hoping my friends on QB can help give me ideas because you guys are so good at that. I really appreciate your help. You guys are the best!
