I’m so excited to share that this past weekend my Christmas Advent Calendar and Tree Display were featured on Global BC News at Noon in a segment featuring Etsy Ambassador Joy Pecknold to showcase local Vancouver Etsy designers! Check out the segment HERE and see mine and other cool holiday decorations all done by local Etsy Vancouver designers.
Last Christmas I made a similar Advent Calendar last year for my own personal use and I thought other people might enjoy it as much as I did so I went to work improving the design and then making available on my Etsy shop. Each day is designed with a custom hand lettered number for 25 days counting down to Christmas. Also included in the design are winter scenery photos from my own personal collection that are on two sides of the pyramid so you can spin them around to either feature the number or the photos. I had to improve the design of the Advent Christmas Calendar because last year’s version had to be glued together and then ripped open to get the chocolate out, not ideal. The new design features a poke open bottom that folds together without glue so when you open it the chocolate/candy/toy falls out into your hand, easy peasy.
There’s still time to order a calendar or even better if you live in Vancouver, Cadeaux Bakery in Gastown has them available for purchase and then you don’t have to worry about getting it time.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
