The Quimper Hitty human has been participating in the second annual Crafty Advent Calendar. Twenty-five people each made 25 little gifts. These were each wrapped and numbered (all mine were #8) and each person got a big bag of 25 different goodies – what fun! Opal and Agathe are overjoyed to be helping me to examine each gift – only one a day no matter how tempting!
The first few days were full of delicious treats, including dried apples, marshmallow peanut-butter delight, and pecan toffee. Someone made a sweet little macramé wreath, just the right size for the Hitty’s door!
A jar of “Golden Milk” a tube of home made lip balm and two greeting cards completed the first week of delights!
Look, how perfect is this little wreath? It’s starting to feel like Christmas!
I love this idea! And how exciting for the Quimper Hittys. No wonder they’re having a hard time limiting themselves to opening one package per day! Judith S
We loved this idea too, last year it was such an uplifting project – and were so happy to hear it was being revived this year.
So much fun….I’m glad for you and all those darling little dolls in your household.
The gifts are very sweet! We appreciate each and every one of them…so many kind crafty people!
How lovely! Such joy to have these delightful treasures to look forward to each day!
Yes – such fun! Opal and Agathe are very enthusiastic!
I especially love the final photo in this story….. their sweet expressions, darling holiday dresses, and the beautiful light. And home made blood orange lip balm? How intriguing!
Thanks very much! The girls each got a new dress for the advent season – they are feeling very festive!
What a wonderful idea! A surprise advent calendar to look forward to each day. The girls look very pleased with everything and spread that happiness by sharing their Christmas clothes and decorations.
Wishing all a peaceful advent and time to reflect on how wonderful life can be.
Jenni and the Not-Quite-Hitty girls
We are really enjoying the calendar – such fun, and I think of all the dear kind people wanting us all to have fun and feel optimism!
I love this idea! What a fun time for the Quimper Hittys (and all the other small participants!)
It is really a delight and a joy for us all – we surely feel lucky!
This is such a fun way to celebrate Hitty gift giving.
It is really fun! I hope the tradition continues, and spreads!
oh, what fun! I’m sure the twins are a great help. I know that tempting feeling. My daughter-in-law checked when she visited, that I was peeking.
The twins are so-o-o tempted, but have been very well-behaved so far!
