    While they are all lovely, I have to say that Jasmine's advent calendar is my fav. So much work with the fussy cutting and decorating each little box…and then she had to fill them with creative treats as well. So much nicer then store bought calendars and it can be used again next year. What a great keepsake and sentimental family tradition!

    Wow, it is truly difficult to pick a favorite as all the ribbon projects are outstanding. I especially love Jasmine Ford's Advent Calander. No matter the style of an advent, it always takes me back to my childhood. The anticipation each night of what little surprise awaited inside the door. Jasmine's take is really cute and clever.
