Julie's Advent Calendar for 2016

17th December, 2016

Some years ago a friend introduced Hawthorn and me to Jaquie Lawson's Advent Calendar.  Ever since then I have sent one to Hawthorn and my daughter-in-law and two special friends in South Africa.   Because of my problems with my computer I have not been able to access this year's calendar properly.  Today I have and so have 17 days of fun and games of catching up to do.

The first thing I have done is to decorate the tree in the street.  This year I have stuck to red but I am sure I will dress the other two trees and alternate them as I usually do. Unfortunately the lights don't twinkle in this picture. 

If you are interested to see more of the calendar this is the link. Jacquie Lawson cards.  They also have a wonderful selection of ecards that I use all year round for friends and family.  Thanks M  (Threads through my Life)  for introducing me to them. birthday cards

  2. Yes her cards and calendars are wonderful. So glad you are spreading the news about her work. With the cost of stamps these days, they are an ideal way to send a card to special people.

  3. I've not done today's 'window' have been busy, but now will go and see what is today's little delight!

  4. What a great idea and when I have time I'll do a quick peek at it. Take care.

  5. My friend has sent me some wonderful Jacqui Lawson cards!
