    Advent Calendars

    I bought three advent calendar panels several years ago. I finally put them together. I also found an ornament of The Elf on the Shelf. Rather than stuffing the pockets with candy or whatever else a family chooses to use, I have the elf attached to a ribbon and he hops from pocket to pocket as we countdown to Christmas. It may not show, but the ornaments and packages are outlined with a gold metallic thread and embellished with some crystals. These will be given to three families at Thanksgiving - just in time for the holiday countdown and the elf will be checking out whose been naughty and whose been nice.

    Gorgeous. I've got four panels that I picked up last year that I really need to finish so that the family (sisters and parents) can enjoy them - hopefully this year.

    Cheers, K

    I love your idea of moving the elf along the days. Those are really nice panels and I know the families that receive them will love them.
