Hand made Christmas Challenge......

Blogtober 16th

I'm a bit of a sucker for an interesting advent calendar, so I was kind of thrilled with this update on the old tradition. All those grey shapes are in scratchie paint so you rub off a patch each day of the countdown. A scratchie advent calendar - I love it! I picked this up at the Finders Keepers Market last weekend from tmod. (, they had other quirky scratchie cards and things, but I really like this calendar!
I was going to try and crochet one this year, but I think I'll be short on time, so that will be for Xmas 2011.

Have a look over here at Knicky Knacks to see how others are going with the handmade Christmas Challenge!
Hope you're having a lovely weekend ( it is ffffffrrreeeezzziinngg here!)


  1. I love this advent calendar, what a great idea. When I was a child we used to have calendars where you open a window each day and I loved it. These days I mostly find chocolate ones which I really don't like so this one I really like.:)
    P.S. It's cold here too! I hope you're keeping warm.:)

  2. We've just put the fire on again here ! Stay warm and dry .

  3. how cool!!! but where's the chocolate treat???

  4. What a great idea for an Advent calendar. Love it.

  5. Interesting. I'll have to go look.
