So sorry, I gave you a little tease about a project I am working on (advent envelopes) and told you I'd have the directions for you the next day...and that was on MONDAY! My kids are home for their Thanksgiving break, and we ended up having some last-minute medical appointments, which shifted things a couple of days. Then Thanksgiving was yesterday, and we cooked up a storm :-) And, unfortunately, I woke up a bit under the weather today. BUT--I'm feeling better, and hoping that after we run pick up a couple things from the store (wish us luck with Black Friday traffic), maybe I'll still have the energy to finish my project. It really is a simple project, I just need a little chunk of time to wrap it up.

You can put whatever little treats or cards in your pockets that you want. Tiny chocolates like Dove squares or Hershey mini bars work great, and here are several sites with suggested advent scripture readings:
