Your Advent Calendar Gift Three

Welcome to the gift of an Advent Calendar.  I have always loved Advent calendars.  When I was little, I just couldn't wait to open each little door and find the surprise waiting there.

This Christmas I am turning my blog into an Advent calendar, so I can give you a Christmas surprise every day until Christmas.  Every day I will post downloadable artwork for you to use as my gift.

Today's gift is actually two gifts.  If you are like me, I always give calendars for Christmas.

So, I thought I would give you a calendar to print and use as a gift or a gift for yourself.  I have two different ones for you to download.  The first one is called Little Women Inspiration.  An Antique print of Orchard house is in the hot air balloon and in the moon.  The forest was created using Vintage ephemera.  You can click HERE to download Advent Day 3 Calendar, Little Women Inspiration.

The second calendar is called Birds of a Feather Tea Time.  Filled with bluebirds and teapots, this one would make a lovely kitchen calendar.  You can click HERE to download Advent Day 3 Calendar, Birds of a Feather.

 Both calendars were created as 8" x 10"prints on an 8.5" x 11" sheet.  You can trim them so that they fit perfectly in an 8 x 10" frame.

A few years ago I found a lovely shadow box frame in Home Goods. Many shops carry these and they are affordable and so attractive.

I loved the shadow box idea, and besides putting my calendar inside, I added some fun pieces to create a Vintage look.  It was a gift for my friend, Judy.  The door opens up, so you can change the calendar.  I am going to send Judy a new calendar this year to replace the old one.

Today is Mosaic Monday, and I wanted to create a mosaic to join and see what Mary was up to over at Little Red House.

During the Christmas season, I will be creating more gift tags, Christmas stationery, and all kinds of art for you to use.  You can give the art as gifts, decorate your home or use on your Christmas crafts and cards.  If you miss a day, just click on this page, and you can see all the posts and artwork at a glance.

You can also find all of the artwork on my Pinterest Board called An Advent Calendar of Downloadable Artwork.  If you click the artwork that you like, it will lead you back here with the link to the download.
