paper advent calendar

My favorite {and only} gift so far this year has been this incredible advent calendar...

My sweet and talented friend, Annie, designed and crafted this amazing paper + envelope advent calendar. Full of songs, quotes, verses, and even tiny candles for each week! I've never had a calendar to open and I LOVE it. I look forward to each day and the sweet note to open. Now I'm truly inspired to create one next year for gifts.

There are many amazing advent calendars around the web, have you found a favorite?

UPDATE: ///// You can download one of the prints for FREE  ////// or....

Oh how Beautiful! That is EXACTLY what i have been looking for in an advent calendar! Does your friend sell them? Would love to order one for next year. Please pass her information along for myself and others who would enjoy owning one for themselves. Thank you so much!

this is a beautiful idea. I saw something similar in a lovely deco shop here in Munich but was too late to get some of the nice paper bags to make this project. Maybe next year!! Cheers, Igor xoxo

I'm with Colleen - this is a perfect advent calendar! I'd love to buy one (or several as gifts!) if your friend would be willing!

Hi: I love this idea and would really like to give this as a gift to my girl friends. Any chance you would be able to share the advent calendar with us so we would be able to print and give too? It is so very beautiful.

Thanks ladies! Actually Annie has been so gracious to allow a free download of the scripture card, which I plan to post soon. If you are interested in purchasing the whole set, you are welcome to email her at annamarie.monette {at} gmail {dot} com

I'm so glad you love them! - Amanda

@Lisa Thank you so much! I do need to check in with the designer who made the calendar and see if we're planning to sell it this year. Thanks for the reminder!

Please do let me know! I'd love it if you would sell them, even just the PDF files.
