december first

December is officially here! To me, December first has always meant the arrival of one of Santa's special helpers in my home, my beloved Mr. Goody. I grew up with a Mr. Goody at my house. Mr. Goody comes to watch over little boys and girls to make sure they are being good. Every morning Mr. Goody hides in a new spot for us to find him. We can't touch him or he will go back to the North Pole. I missed Mr. Goody from my childhood, so I am excited that Santa decided to send us a Mr. Goody this year:)

{I got him here}

In other December first related traditions I have seen a few advent calendars on this wonderful world wide web that I have loved. I don't have one yet, but am thinking of making one this year so that I have one next year. Here are a few favorites from my round-up.

1. craftastica blog creation.
2. flickr find.

4. from mod cottage
5. found here. My sister did one like this last year that turned out really cute.
6. the oh-so talented Ali Edwards came up with this lovely idea.
7. from loveland misc. {free download!}

A few more flickr finds:

8. Love this style.
9. Love the fabric used on this one.
10. If I were a more confident quilter I might attempt this one.

And one more... how cool is this. I may have to start buying more mints and collecting tins!
