Welcome 2013

I can now post this because my friend received her calendar in the mail today....this was my Christmas gift to my friends and family. I made 10 of them and actually need to make a couple more. I first got the idea to do a calendar from Damaris over at Studio D.  Her calendar is amazing and you should definitely check it out. However, I needed something less time consuming and that I could crank out a lot of them in less time.  I found several different calendar styles and finally came up with this, which I think is just a combination of several ideas rolled into one.  I used digi elements and calendar kits from Pickleberry Pop and Fayette's designs. I LOVE her style.  I put the months together in Photoshop and sent them to Walgreens for development. They are 4x6 photos, the base is a wood block painted, sanded and then I mod podged the kraft bracket frame, line stitched on it and added the teacup hooks.

I think it turned out super cute and now all my friends are already wanting refills for next year!
