Just a Minute in...November


*Oriental Lillies Jason surprised me with

Just a Minute in....November

Reading... Inheritance, Outside In, Scorpio Races and assorted magazines.
Creating... An Advent calendar (hopefully anyway)
Wishing... For a holiday
Getting... Excited about Christmas
Listing... My gift's for people, decorations to create, cards to write...
Wanting... To find some apothecary style bottles (they were everywhere at the Finders Keepers market as part of the stall decor)

This is some of the inspiration for my Advent calender. Jason and I are going to split the days and have 12 items each. So I get to open something every second day. It's going to be fun putting together these little gifts. 

Do any of you have or make a Advent calendar.

I love your advent calender idea! I'm going to do one with Miguelito this year. We will do something different everyday as we count down to Christmas. Such as bake cupcakes, buy an ornament, draw something, watch a holiday movie and more :) I'm organizing putting the ideas in little bags on our Christmas tree :)

So many happy things! 'Tis the season!!! and I love it!!
