this year I am in Brasov for CHRISTMAS and I love exploring this beautiful city of Romania. there is a huge christmas tree in the center of the old city and fancy lights that are hanging above the streets. BRASOV is a very beautiful city with lots of amazing looking old houses. some of them need more care than the owners can spare but in general there is a movement in order to preserve the cultural heritage of Brasov. and now let me show you some photos.

so let me tell you a bit more about what we have done so far. we have visited the new flat of C’s parents, strolled around the city, visited friends, decorated the christmas tree and took some photos for the blog. more to come, stay tuned. X
christmas is around the corner and we are all ready for the feasts. something that you can find on almost every table is napkins and this year I got these lovely deluxe line christmas napkins. when I first touched them I thought these napkins were reusable meaning that I could wash them BUT no. they are single use napkins
today is december first and I am actually very late with showing you this post as all the advent calendars start today 🙂 anyway I felt the urge to share my idea with you – maybe for next year. who knows!
what do you need?
white paper / one thicker paper for template
black envelopes and cards
black pegs (mini)
you could write 24 reasons why you love someone – you could give 24 vouchers to someone – you could remember 24 events with someone and re-capture them – you could draw 24 nice things – as you see I could go on and on and on with ideas. and let me tell you – the advent season is not about spending lots of money it is about caring for others and sharing love. so I saw many nice DIY advent calendars that involved buying 24 items and I think you can also make someone happy with words and only spending a little. I found all my things at Manor in basel and I have spent 13 CHF 🙂
draw a christmas tree on a thicker piece of paper and use this as a template. copy the shape to the white paper and cut 24 trees.
write 24 ideas on the black cards using a silver pen
step three mark the numbers 1 to 24 on the white christmas trees with a black pen
glue the christmas trees to the black envelopes
hang a black cord to a wall and place the cards with the pegs
THAT’S IT! as easy as ABC or 123, right?
happy advent season. xx
