2010 Advent Calendar Template

Advent-Christmas -
Added November 20, 2011: Looking for my current template? For 2011, click here.
I'm continuing to make greeting cards which I post on my other blog, Mostly Markers - Cards. (Click on the link in my blog header, just below the green leaves.) As a result, I'm not posting as often on this blog. But today, I'm looking ahead to drawing daily during Advent, which in the church year is the 4-week season of hope and longing that leads up to Christmas.

For the past two Advent seasons, I made a small drawing each day in a calendar format. Both years, I found it to be very meaningful, and I'm looking forward to it again this year. Beginning in late November or early December, I plan to post my calendar drawings as I go along.

The blank grid at the top of this post is my 2010 template. If you think you might enjoy this activity, please feel free to use my template for your own daily drawings.... colorful tree ornaments, decorated words, geometric shapes, or whatever inspires you. I've saved it on-line at Google Docs, where you are very welcome to print or download it.
  • Click here for the PDF template on Google Docs, if you'd like to use it as is. Note, for the PDF document, you do not need to have the font (Lucida Calligraphy) on your computer.
  • Click here for the Word template on Google Docs, if you'd like to be able to edit it. Note, for the Word document, the font may look different on the Google Docs site, but (if you have the Lucida Calligraphy font on your computer) it will be OK when you download it. If you don't have that font on your computer, I think it will use a default font when you open it. Of course, then you can change it to another font.
Overall page size is 8-1/2 x 11". Each day's drawing space is 1-3/8 x 1-5/8". The image size (including the "Advent 2010" heading) is 7-1/4 x 9-3/4".
