This could be my favorite one yet! I've always wanted to add lights to the mix~ and this year I found an LED battery operated star on a timer :) We'll see how it all plays out.....it's not easy winching it up and down, so I'm hoping I won't need to do it more than once. I love the Advent season :) Some churches go 'blue' and some 'purple' ~ we have blue Paraments and purple candles in the Advent wreath.....so me being 'me'......I try to crowd in as much purple as possible :) May your Advent season be a time of preparation and anticipation of the celebration of Jesus's birth!

And I'm back with another Pinterest find (here's the original pin)
Here's my 'take' on the idea! I found the mini bags at Michaels.....but I would probably just make my own next time. Each bag has a different tea in it- it gets a little expensive doing it that way ( PLUS they are mostly decaf - for a few of my friends) so I would recommend going together with a friend and splitting the cost. Or just make a bunch- they get progressively less expensive that way :) Another hint - next time I would make sure the tea bags are all individually wrapped.....I had to print some labels for some teas so folks would know what they were drinkin' :) I made the box from 12" cardstock and the lid from a transparency sheet. I also tucked in some chocolate truffles here and there to make the bags *stand at attention* :) I can't wait to give these to some special people in my life!
