I had so much fun this week! Receiving four Advent gifts from a friend is such a treat. We have exchanged Advent gifts for several years. I is kind of Christmas morning every Sunday.

4 pakker til hver søndag i advent 

When my boys were kids (up to 16 y/o) I made Advent calendars and 24 packets for each of them. Every day in December was fun.

Well, it is allowed to have fun even if you are “grown up”. Me and my mom have treated each other to Advent calendars for more than ten years. It all started when my mom was going through some hard time and needed some fun in her life. I made a Mystery Quilt of 24 parts that turned out to be Advent calendar. Next year I sent her 24 packets with sewing notion. My mom is a quilter too. I have enjoyed very much preparing this year Advent calendar for my mom.

24 adventspakker

You are never too old to have fun (my mom is past 70 hihi).
