When I first mentioned the palooza on the blog, I mentioned there was a fourth calendar not in the picture and that I wasn’t sure whether to open it during the traditional 12 days of Christmas starting December 25th, or to include it as a countdown to Christmas with the others. Since you are reading […]
We finally are just 12 days away from Christmas, which means we get to start opening the 12 day advent calendars. First up is the 12 Days of Burton box by So Berry Busy. Please excuse me while I fangirl all over Blaine’s artwork. I find her skill for hand drawing to be amazeballs. The […]
We have also reached the half way point in the Cricket Paper Co Cricketmas countdown. Today, we have more stickers that coordinate with the other functional stickers received to date, this time in labels, quarter boxes and half boxes. I am really enjoying how all of these stickers coordinate. By the time we get through […]
We’ve made it to the halfway point! We are most likely going to see boxes 1-12 repeated now in the Jimmy Beans Craftvent calendar, as the pattern is knit in two halves. As expected, Box 13 contains our old friend, Tosh Merino Light in Dirty Panther.
Today, in the Cricket Paper Co Cricketmas envelope for day 13, we get more stickers. Today’s stickers are quite practical and match the blue theme we seem to have going on. Habit trackers and bill stickers are a fairly consistent event in my planner, so I can see using these right up.
I may not have thought through just how interesting these advent calendar posts are or are not. Particularly as it looks like the Jimmy Beans Craftvent calendar has started to repeat colors. It makes sense that it would – we are knitting a wrap, after all. At least there will be two new 12 day […]
Today, for day 14 of Cricketmas by Cricket Paper Co, we get more sticky notes!
This morning in the Craftvent calendar, we have a repeat color. The day 11 box included more Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Pewter. I am so behind in the knitting. Hoping to have some time this weekend to work on this a bit.
My second late night package is Day 15 of the Cricketmas countdown by Cricket Paper Co. Today we got more stickers featuring the shop mascot doing winter type things like building a snowman and sitting in front of the fire. As someone that lives where it is perpetually summer, I don’t know that I will […]
Today was a long day of travel home from my recent trip, so I didn’t get to open today’s packages until quite late. First up, let’s see what Jimmy Beans had in store for me. Today’s yarn was more from Anzula in the Nebula base in Au Natural as the colorway. I think it’s going […]
