Happy first day of December - the holiday season is officially upon us! I'm sharing a DIY advent calendar which I'll be incorporating into my annual Christmas tradition. This calendar is a great activity to do with your S.O. in place of a gift. If your love language is words of affirmation, then this will be right up your alley! Unlike traditional advent calendars (where you receive one tangible item each day leading up to Christmas) you'll be writing a message to whoever is participating in the activity with you. Each day you'll take down the corresponding day's number off of the garland. There will be mini cards & envelopes for you to write a message and drop it in someone's stocking every day leading up to the 25th. On Christmas morning you'll have a stocking full of 25 notes of compliments, encouragement, and motivation from someone you love. I hope you find this tutorial helpful and it inspires you to try it out!
