December + Guest Blogger + DIY= The Advent Calender

December 1st is finally here and I am so very excited to share with you the month that is planned ahead. This month will be filled with tutorials, DIY, inspiration and ideas to decorate your home for the holidays, easy gifts to make, activities to do with the kids and the list goes on...

 I am SO thrilled than to announce that I will be doing all of this with the help of the ever so talented Marie-Laure of La Maison de Loulou.

If you don't already know, Marie-Laure is a french architect now living in New York and running her own Architect- Interior Design Studio, La Maison de Loulou, were she creates the most adorable nurseries, kid's and playrooms.

She also blogs, pins, instagrams and has the greatest facebook page. She is definitely one to follow!

We are lucky enough to have her guest post throughout the month of December, bringing us some delightful DIY's all around the theme of The North Pole.

So without further ado here is Marie-Laure's first DIY... The Advent Calendar.

I love that you can see through the goodie bags, but still keeps it somewhat mysterious!
So if you haven't created your advent calendar, it's not to late. With this simple and cute DIY, you can have it ready pretty quickly and your kids will be delighted.

Thank you so much Marie-LaureCan't wait to see what else you've got up your sleeve... 

P.S. Stay tuned for another DIY tomorrow!
