Advent Calendar

This year I was totally inspired by the 'Junk drawer Advent Calendar' over on 2gypsy girls blog.
I can thank Irene for the link and some of her junk drawer stash too!
This Calendar has given me the opportunity to use lots of broken jewellery bits that I have had tucked away for years.
I have had a lot of fun doing this project and even though I originally planned to add a tag a day to the board over the next 25 days I have decided to put them all on in one go and enjoy them for the whole of Advent!


























Thanks for looking at my efforts.
