Here we are: 24th December, last day of our Calvendo Advent calendar 2016. Say hello to this wonderful Japanese Kokeshi doll version of Father Christmas in our author Capucine’s delightful A Year of Kokeshi wall calendar – whimsical illustrations of this old Japanese tradition of handmade wooden dolls.
Thanks everyone for joining us on our Advent calendar journey for the past 24 days! Wishing you all a wonderful, peaceful and joyful Christmas with family and friends. Take care of yourselves and only the very best for 2017!
We all need a bit of good luck from time to time. So, behind door number 22 of our Advent calendar, we find this lovely ladybird macro shot from our author Icy Ho’s Beautiful Beetles World in the UK wall calendar, full of close-up faces of tiny little critters.
P.S.: Don’t forget to take a moment to breathe today. We know a lot of you are running around like mad at the moment 🙂
24th December, final day of our Calvendo Advent calendar 2015. All that’s left to say now is: Have a very merry and wonderful Christmas everyone and enjoy it with family & friends! To put you in a peaceful and suitably snowy mood, our last door reveals one of Nadia Attura’s gorgeous pictures from her Nature in Art calendar. The award-winning and fine art photographer works with layers to texturise her work. We like the mood this creates, and hope you do, too!
