Advent Calendar for my Vegan Princess

 Since my daughter has been living a vegan lifestyle the last two years, I have learned a lot about the many sacrifices she makes to stick to it.  One of these has been giving up her beloved advent calendar of chocolate goodies every year. So, this year I promised myself I would do something about that!
I made this Icy Crystal Advent Calendar using a wonderful freebie from Mr. Printables.  My colour ink cartridge was almost empty so I didn't get a good printing of the lovely pink, mauve and blue highlights on the crystals but I am happy with them the way they are and I think she will be too. I hope so since it took me the better part of three days to cut these, fold them and assemble them all together.
Each little crystal is numbered and I have filled them with vegan goodies:  vegan butterscotch, dark chocolate hard candies, candied ginger, pistachios, macadamia nuts and other goodies - little treats a starving student doesn't buy for herself.  I hope that she will open each one knowing how much we miss her now she is away at school.
