Sheila November 28, 2011 at 9:23 pm

Hey Alissa, Thanks for commenting on my blog (I mentioned your inspiration of 10 minutes a day art boxes). I am amazed that you found my mention. How did this happen, did someone tell you, do you have a magic search engine?…I frankly cant believe I am read by others than friends. In any case I love this site and this (and many) posts! I look forward to see your 24 bloggers entries.

Inspired by last years’ mention of advent calenders in various blogs, I made one this year and posted it today on Unknowing of this I invited others to share and suggest new ways to celebrate love and joy on these days as a family.
I am looking forward to these answers! ;)


Cerys @ Rainy Day Mum November 29, 2011 at 3:33 am

This is so fabulous – Thank you so much for organising it all. I’m really looking forward to being part of it.


Kim@The Educators Spin On It November 29, 2011 at 4:17 am

I did something similar on my blog last year (, my family had so much fun that I decided to make it a tradition. I’m thrilled to stumble onto this blog (a friend sent me the link tonight) and excited to see what you have in store!!!


Alissa December 1, 2011 at 7:23 pm

Thanks Michelle, on your blog the pictures of your kids next to their stockings each year is such a cute way to show how they’ve grow.


Carole December 2, 2011 at 8:07 am
