Virtual Advent Calendars

It's been a while since I had an Advent calendar to open, probably not since the girls were born, but this year I have three 'virtual' Advent calendars to count me down to Christmas. 

The first, and only overtly religious one, is a joint project between Ian Adams, who wrote the text, and Si Smith, who drew the pictures.  Advent is traditionally a season of prepration and I can't think of a better person to help focus the mind on what is to come than Ian.  It is available to download, for £3.50, at Proost.

The second is a very bright and cheery one designed by Hannah Broadway and can be found on her blog, Hannah's Pictures.  I love her insights into the wonders of everyday life.

The third is the most original, featuring photographs of celebrities wearing knitted jumpers!  Pop over to Twee as Volk and be prepared to be entertained.

Have you come across a virtual calendar that you'd like to share?


  1. I'm enjoying this one, so far,

  2. Thanks for the link, Karin. I've just 'opened' the first three windows. There are some interesting ideas. I particularly liked the idea of renting a Christmas tree and the seed bombs.

  3. I like the Eden one - I'm sure they'll be even more around next year.

    The kids are really enjoying the Jacquie Lawson one too!
