Advent tags

I started a new tradition in our home this year, a book advent calendar. I gathered together all of our winter, Christmas and Holiday themed books and borrowed a few from the library as well and wrapped them up so the kids could open a book a day (often 2 books) each day in December to count down to Christmas. They are LOVING it!

Of course I used my Unity stamps to make the tags. :)  Thankfully I have quite the collection and it was easy to find lots of holiday themed stamps and different number sets from SMAK kits and Itty Bittys.

I will definitely be continuing this tradition each year. Even my 18 month old gets excited each evening to open the books and loves to sit and listen as well as browse through the books throughout the day.

Linking up to Unity's Friends With Flair today and wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years!
