Advent Tags/Tree

Really, is it December already? I can't seem to keep track of time lately. The holidays are fast approaching, there is shopping and wrapping to be done, and lest not forget the cooking, baking, and celebrating with family and friends.

Today is a quick look at my advent tag tree that I created using Kerri Bradfords studio cut files. Some I followed exactly and some I changed up using supplies that I had on hand. My daughter is older now, so I felt this year was in need of a few changes to some of our holiday traditions. Instead of the usual 24 little boxes filled with candy or small trinkets, I created the numbered tags which each coordinate with a gift under the tree. One for each day.

Here is a look at the tree and a couple of the tags that are on it. Sorry if the photos are dark. I don't get much light in my living area.





We also started another tradition this year, which included getting dressed up and going to a nice restaurant on December 1st to ring in the holiday season. It was great!! What new traditions are you starting this year or what old ones are you bringing back?

Those tags and that tree are a stunning combination! Love your new tradition. We usually find time for dinner and a movie in December. Mailed your package today!
