Merry Christmas!

This year I created an advent calendar, the Advent Art Journal for myself and our kids. I decided to share it with my email newsletter subscribers. The Advent Art Journal is twenty-five 4×6 pages. Each page includes a part of the Christmas story written in simple words.

UPDATE: This Advent Art Journal was a printable I offered free to my email subscribers in December 2014. It is no longer available free, but you can buy your copy of this printable Advent Art Journal in my Etsy shop.

I also posted my completed pages on Instagram, with short comments/descriptions. Here are all 25 pages:
