It is time to be thinking about Advent Calendars!!! Only 26 days till it is time to begin marking the days till Christmas! Not a lot of time really for planning, designing, cutting, sewing, pasting and making your very own calendar!

Päkapikk! Delightful little elf like creatures that visit good little Estonian children every night during Advent! (See "mermaid's " comment below for the proununciation.)

In this post, I am sharing how we constructed the tree. It is more of a guideline than a step by step tutorial but I am hoping some of you who may want to build your own will find it useful

As always, please feel free to ask me any questions.
