Weekend Project; Scandinavian Christmas Tree Baskets

Since Christmas season is upon us, I wanted to share a tutorial for Scandinavian Christmas tree baskets, that I found on this blog.

These baskets can be seen on a lot of Christmas trees during the holiday season, at least in Norway (where I live). I also remember making some of them as a kid.

It is also possible to buy baskets like these on Etsy, GreatDanePaperShop is one of several shops which sells them.

Advent Calendars

In just a few days, December officially starts. Many are going to have an advent calendar. I know it is a bit late to order advent calendars from Etsy at this point, but you can consider buying one for next year.

This pretty woodland advent calendar comes from Peppersprouts.

Another idea, instead of stressing about buying those 24/25 small gifts, why note have a note some of the days, with stuff like "Today we're making Christmas cookies". Think activities and similar, suitable for advent. Buying all those gifts can be a bit expensive, and I think that at least some kids want to have some quality time with their parents.
