I'm full sail ahead on the advent calendar and hope to be able to show it to you all soon. I still haven't figured out what I'm going to put inside the calendar yet though. I really don't think I want to do candy, it seems like we're still wading through pounds of Halloween candy so we really don't need any more in the house. So, I need ideas for little gifts that I can stuff in the calendar. I'm thinking things that are $2 or less, like stickers, cars, etc. Does anyone have a traditional small gift that they put in their calendars or stockings? I would love to hear your ideas!
I've been buying vintage records on ebay for awhile now, in the hopes of giving them to B for christmas. There's something so inspiring and magical about illustration from the 50's and 60's. The colors are wonderful and the line work fluid and loose. These are just a few of my favorites. I haven't found a record player yet so I haven't been able to listen to them, but just sitting and looking at them is just as fun!
