Paused, Pondered, Prepared

For 25 days in November I have described how I have made 25 tags to make an Advent Calendar.

Here's my board with the finished calendar ready to turn over the tags on each day from December 1st to December 25th.

And here is what it will look like by December 7th with the first few tags turned over to tell the Christmas story.

And this is what it will look like on December 25th.

To finish my Advent Journal I tied ribbons to the book rings.

You may remember there were some extra pages in my journal because of recycling it from 2010.  I'm going to add photos or cards later in the from my Christmas celebrations.  Plus of course there are two or three pages to go back and journal on.  In the meantime here is my (almost) finished journal.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing how I put my journal and my calendar together.

Thanks for stopping by.
