    I love the forest and the miniature city calendars – so cute! I had to laugh that two of the ones you featured were made using toilet paper rolls because I just finished mine and guess what I used – toilet paper rolls. Mine were personalized for my two university-aged kids. You can see them here: http://gracie-senseandsimplicity.blogspot.ca/2014/11/personalized-advent-calendars.html

    Super cute ideas :) I thought the first one was a manger… I think I’m going to have to take the forest theme idea and try making a Nativity Scene like that. Really great ideas 😉
