Advent Calendar Extravaganza

Advent Calendar Extravaganza

Advent Calendar Extravaganza is the festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day. Joining the fun this year are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up fantastic Christmas inspiration. Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting until you ‘open the door’!

Day 22 is sponsored by Ellen Hutson LLC and I'm sharing a sweet idea for packaging up a few holiday treats using the Leading Lady - Baker Lady from Essentials by Ellen.


I really dig how versatile this set is: while I've dolled her up for Christmas, you could use her for any occasion by simply changing the color palette or what accessories are added. (And if you're not familiar with Brandi Kincaid's Leading Lady series for Ellen Hutson, each gal comes with a slew of accoutrements you can share between them, extending their use even more - love that!)


While I've used it on a box lid, this layout could easily translate to a card or tag. I've enjoyed using her open hand to "hold" cookies and cakes, but I particularly like using it show off a sentiment. (And, really, you could highlight just about anything in the space above her hand and it would work - though Brandi's flowing sentiments curve and fit especially well.)

There's also a chance for you to win some goodies - and with prizes every day there are several chances to win. Today’s prize is generously supplied by Ellen Hutson LLC: simply leave a comment on this post - then head back to and leave a comment there too. You must leave a comment on Taheerah’s blog as well as mine in order to be eligible to win. Visiting and commenting on the other surprise destinations (from Taheerah’s blog) will increase your chances to win a prize. You have until 23:59 EST on 31st December 2017 to enter.

The Advent Calendar Extravaganza runs from 1-25 December at
