Away in a Manger Pop and Slot Advent Calendar from Roger la Borde with nativity characters in the stable. All the family can have fun slotting this advent calendar together by adding a piece each day in the run up to Christmas. Beautifully illustrated by Antoana Oreski.
Simply pop out each piece, which is numbered and add a little bit each day, number by number until you put the final piece, baby Jesus in the manger, in place on Christmas Eve. Fun to build and makes a beautiful decoration that could be used again and again.

About the artist
I’m a freelance illustrator from Istra, a beautiful peninsula in Croatia, where I live with my hubby and our four kiddos.
When I was a little girl my fave time of the day was listening to my mother’s bedtime stories. It was an enchanting and magical experience for me.
My greatest source of inspiration always comes from nature itself in combination with my ever growing imagination, but the anchor for both has always been deeply rooted in my childhood memories. That plays the biggest part of my creative process. Like, how I remember certain scenes or smells while I paint Christmassy things…or certain feelings I remember from camping from when I was a little girl when I make anything summer related. I guess this is the reason my work has been described as evocative.
I also love experimenting & playing with textures, lines & patterns as seen in my work. I like it when I get lost in my own world- it’s fun! (from her website)
