121414: Currently hospitalized. I’ll be resuming my digital Advent goodies as soon as I’m home. Thank you for being here. Spread the word!

renxmas_Frenchnutcracker_seethroughChristmas has got to be my favorite holiday of the year. The whole season starting around Halloween and moving through to mid-January is a big deal for me. This year I wanted to do something special for all of my followers, so I am giving you all a free gift every day this month up until Christmas Eve. Think of it as my Advent Calendar just for you!

Advent Calendars here in the United States can be traced back to the early 1900s as it wasn’t until Eisenhower took office that they became popular outside of Europe. The tradition of Advent can be traced back to mid-19th century Germany where many Protestants lit candles to count down the days until Christmas.

It is my hope that you and yours will enjoy these gifts of artsy goodness. If you make them, I’d love to see them, so post a photo to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and tag @renmeleon so I can see my art in action!
