Set The Scene: Christmas Advent

I know, it feels early to be talking Christmas. But there are just some things that take planning, and an Advent calendar is one of them. My lovely friend Carly has re-stocked her Etsy shop with her clip frames that I love year round for use as inspiration boards & photo boards. But at Christmas time they are perfect for Advent, especially with her free PDF forms.

I've set up a little corner in our kitchen with the frame and the related activities. Of course it looks colorful and crazy, a bit like our family. Activities include watching our favorite movies, paying for the coffees of people behind us in line, eating holiday chocolate, etc. It was a good exercise with the family deciding what to include!

Here is the overall look of it which makes me happy and very excited about the Christmas season. You should go and check out Carly's set-ups which are very elegant and lovely, much like her. You will find them here, along with her PDF's and the link to her store! I invite you to check it out! 


  1. Oh my goodness! I love Theo chocolates. I went a wedding in Seattle last summer, and the factory tour was the best money I spent on the trip. Don't tell the brides... ;)

    1. I love your comment! I don't think you can ever go wrong spending money on chocolate! We are lifelong fans of Theo now!

  2. Oh man, I totally responded to the wrong post. Whoops!
