This is a post about advents.  And it's really advantageous for you to read it.  You see what I did there, right?  Advent-ageous?  
It's either a play on advantageous OR a cross between advents and contagious.  You decide.

What IS for SURE contagious?  The desire to create one-of-a-kind beautiful works of art like the advents below.  I love them all.  I'm not kidding when I say I want to make each one of them.  But that would be a ridiculous amount of advents at one time.  And we don't have that much space.  Plus, it would take a long time to make them all, and Christmas would be over by then.  BUT, here's to numerous ideas for next year, right?  Plus, if you haven't made one yet, we're not even a week in... you can still start!

1. Wood Spool Scavenger Hunt - Just Something I Made
2. Origami Calendar - Homemade Gifts Made Easy
3. Felt Circle Countdown - She Knits Shizknits
4. Framed Boxes (and bits of sentimentality) - Kate's Creative Space

25. Advent Ornaments - kojo designs

I can tell you right now that we will FOR SURE be doing number 25 next year.  And maybe a shortened version of it this year still.  As for the rest?  Well, isn't is just like me to add mountains to NEXT year's to-do list when this year's to-do list is still miles long?  Perhaps I'll just sit here and look at all the eye candy until the feeling passes.

Want more eye candy?  You can find these and about a billion other Christmas ideas over on my "Christmas Love" Pinterest Board.
