It's slightly late, but hid­ing be­hind the eighth door of our Ad­vent Cal­en­dar is our lat­est post-it poet, the inim­itable Kristina Wo­j­taszek. Hail­ing from Wyoming, USA, Kristina is an avid col­lec­tor of odd trin­kets and hope­ful ever-af­ters.  She pens poems, fairy tale retellings, ghost sto­ries and other shorts.  Fol­low her trail of crumbs on her web­site, Twice Upon A Time.
