How cute is this little calendar kit? I think it's adorable, and you'll be able to get one of your very own in our upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog, available October 1st! The full calendar is above, and see the pictures below all my rambling for the smaller details!
I actually finished this calendar yesterday, but I was so productive today this is my first chance to get on the computer and post the pics…we had a half day of school today (which means no work for me, yippee!), and I don't know what came over me, I think it may have been the cool fall air that came into our area in the last day or two, but I had an overwhelming urge to do yardwork…so NOT like me! I went to the garden shop and picked out some mums to match my house, that nice deep maroon color which is the color of my front door. I got a beautiful black ceramic pot to put them in (black is the color of my shutters), and the girl at the garden shop and I were laughing at how important it is for women to be "matchy-matchy" some times! I came home and worked in my front yard all day, weeding (LOTS of weeding to catch up on!), mowing and planting, and I'm so happy with all I've accomplished today I just had to share! You must have those days sometimes that you're just so darn proud of everything you've gotten done, and wonder what took you so long to get around to it? Yep, that's me right now:)
Anywho, back to the calendar…that's what you're thinking I know!! This cute little kit includes the pre-printed calendar pages, sticky back die-cut embellishments, and wide Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, along with a cute little envelope holder you can make too! I actually used the blue striped card stock that would have made the envelope holder as the background for my 2009. The backs of the calendar pages are our Patterns Designer Paper, that's why I chose to cover my clipboard with matching DP. I sponged on some white craft ink at the top, whoever covered the entire clipboard in the photo in the mini has got kudos from me for having the patience for that! I HAD to figure out a way around that…One tip, cover your metal clips with tape or something before you sponge…you should have seen me trying to clean up all my excess sponging from the metal clips with wet Q-tips!!
I will be offering this as a project class, what a cute gift these would make for the holidays, maybe for a teacher or loved one? I'll post the details to my SU! website when I pick a date…my hubby's still away because of all these power outages, so I can't be scheduling like crazy yet!
