I’m linking my advent garland of mittens up with Le Challenge. The inspiration this month was ‘precious’.
We have had a few tough Christmases since my daughter was born. My father was very ill and then passed away and all the family traditions we had somehow didn’t seem right without him. This year I made this advent garland and I know it’ll become a precious treasure that we get out each year with our daughter. I didn’t just want to fill it with chocolates and treats so I put some little reward cards in it like: ‘go to the panto with mummy and daddy’ , ‘make mince pies’ or ‘go and buy a tree’. This way I’m hoping we’ll make some precious memories and start some new Christmas traditions.
