I love our Christmas tree advent calendar, but there definitely came a point while I was making it when I was just tired of crocheting yet another tiny ornament. So I decided to take a shortcut and design a few simplistic ornaments for the set. Which may not sound easier, but these ornaments come together really quickly with minimal amounts of joining (meaning fewer ends to weave in). So I thought I'd share the free patterns in case you want to make your own!
One of my favorite things about the holidays is that it's now officially cookie season! Cookie swaps, cookie plates for neighbors, cookies for Santa...lots and lots of lovely cookies! And, in case you didn't get the memo, I love cookies. These pomegranate white chocolate chip cookies are the perfect addition to your holiday baking list. Trust me when I say that these cookies are a must.
Thanksgiving has come and gone and now it's officially time to start gearing up for Christmas! As my toddler has told me, "My so 'cited Christmas!" So to help us count down the days to Christmas Eve, I finally did what I've been wanting to do for years and made this fun advent calendar. Starting December 1st, we'll add a new ornament to the tree each day until the halls are fully decked. I just love how it turned out. Doesn't it make you want to start singing Christmas carols? "Oh, Christmas tree! Oh, Christmas tree..." Just me? Well then...moving on....
