52 Create – Craftvent Calendar, Day 1

52 Create, my “weekly” creative output for 2011.  Seeing as I missed a few weeks over the summer and fall, I”m making my daughter a “Craftvent” calendar (ie. an advent calendar filled with crafts).  One craft a day from December 1st till the 24th.

I figured I should start it off with something to give a bit of decor to our Parisian apartment.  We don’t have a lot of decorations back home, but here we don’t have any at all.  A 1 metre Christmas tree will set you back $50 in Paris, so we aren’t in a hurry to buy one of those…  So for December 1st I made my daughter a simple garland.  The irony is I used a toy catalogue for the paper as it was full of colour and looked nice.  It’s now hanging in our not very well insulated window.
