A Very Merry Advent Giveaway!

Every year I seem to find myself scrambling to get my advent calendar act together (with the exception of last year-- last year was pretty ace).  Hope likes to switch it up every year, so going to the store and buying a prepackaged PlayMobil calendar year after year doesn't fly (though, I wish it did because they are soooo cute).  I had just started thinking about advent stuff when I got an email about Heidi Kenney and Amanda Krueger's new ebook A Very Merry Advent.  Advent solved!
If you would like a chance at winning a free copy of A Very Merry Advent, simply check out the site and leave a comment here sharing what part you are most excited about (paper dolls, softies, recipes, etc)!
The winner for this giveaway is:


I'll draw and announce the winner next week on Wednesday (11/27) so you can make sure to get started on time!  If you are like me and can't wait, the ebook is only $12 and packed full of fun stuff to do!  Plus, who can resist anything by Heidi Kenney?  I know I can't!
Good luck, friends!

  3. Oh my gosh, SO precious! Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I love doing advent calendars! It'd be so nice to do something every day, especially while I'm lonely and living away from my loved ones. :) I think I'd be most excited for the little crafts!

  4. Wow! I never thought you could plan holiday activities and crafts in an Advent calendar. I thought it was just about getting chocolate. (My family never did this, obviously) What a great way to ensure you get your fill of holiday crafts and treats. Count me it!

  11. I love this! For this year we got a little chocolate advent to go along with our daily activities. We used to do a paper chain but last year we made your tree. My kids also love to change things up every year so this would be wonderful. I love that it's all planned out. Homeschooling three kiddos and planning all the advent activities can be kind of hectic. I feel like I am always last minute putting things together and inevitably something is forgotten. This would be fantastic.
