|Family stocking that was lovingly created |
by my Aunt Kelsie.
jill here....When our family was young and funds were tight, I had to be creative with holiday ornaments. Sometimes, it was more about the time than the money: there wasn't a lot of either. I did allow for one really nice "ornament" each year. One that I hoped would be passed down like the stocking pictured above.
|This is the calendar...self taught applique with numbered pockets|
to house those cute little ornaments.
So when it came to making my Mom's holiday special (in a very small space) I decided to create a calendar with some of her costume jewelry. There are bits and bobs from the past ! She can actually wear them on the appropriate day and then pin them to the tree.

|Advent calendar created from a pre-printed panel . |
Perfect little envelopes for all those jewels ...
