My friend Kelly (Pixie Dust Gal) is such a wonderfully creative soul. She comes up with so many lovely ideas and special items for others all year long. She has a wonderful talent for jewelry making (which is not a gift of mine). I marvel at her vision and love the jewelry that she has created for me. I wear my necklaces and earrings quite often.
I thought Kelly would be the perfect person to create an Advent Bracelet gift for. I purchased a sterling silver bracelet, 25 miniature charms, 25 tiny brown bags and assembles an Advent Basket filled with the tiny treasures.
I stamped each bag with the dates of December 1- 25 and added holiday images. I then mixed up the charms and beads. Wrapped each one in holiday themed tissue and added each to it's individual bag that I sealed with scraps of ribbon and a staple.
Each day Kelly will open a bag and add a charm on to her Advent Bracelet until Christmas Day when the bracelet will be complete. I love the idea of creating an advent gift that is not just for children but also for adults. A reminder of the season and how special they are for almost an entire month.
Kelly opened my gift today and now it is safe to blog what I have been up to. I have been dying for her to open it for a week now. It's been torture waiting. I can't wait to see the bracelet completely assembled after the 25th.
