Jacob’s Advent House

Sorry about the quality of the pictures in this post, but the pictures are rescued from Google after I lost hundreds of pictures in a “deleting” disaster.
downloadSo briefly this is the Advent House I made for my best friends adopted son Jacob for his first Christmas with her.

I used a wooden Tesco Advent House that I had the foresight to buy many of as I knew I would never see them again at £5!

Rather than try to repeat my original post I will just use the pictures to tell the story and just apologise about not giving details about papers etc.like I usually try to do, which came from the HobbyCraft Christmas 2013 range, but I doubt if they are still available now.

It's wonderful Helen! Jacob will treasure his house all his life I'm sure. I knew it would look special but it's turned out far better than I expected.
