Handprint calendars, biscotti + more {101 Days of Christmas}

101 Days of Christmas 2015

Each week I’m sharing seven of my very favorite 101 Days of Christmas projects from the archives.

A friend of mine posts a daily Christmas countdown starting in mid-September (clearly we were destined to be friends!), and according to today’s post, there are 95 days until Christmas—I love it!

Here are this week’s “best of” posts:

Footprint Calendar for Christmas Gifts

{7} Handprint, Footprint & Fingerprint Calendars

The handprint calendar was one of my favorite annual gifts for the grandparents and great-grandparents when our girls were little. We’ve gotten out of the habit as they’ve gotten older, but I can’t wait to do one with the boys in a few years!

  1. Thank you! I linked to your old footprint calendar post and the downloadable calendar appears to only be updated 2016 for January… or am I missing something!?

    1. Oh, it looks like the year didn’t get updated (but the dates are correct!); I’m uploading a new version now!
