Calenders for 2014~

Hi Ladies

Hope you are all well. A big thank you for leaving me such lovely comments, I love to read them.

I have been busy making lots of new items for my next craft sale. As the last one went so well, I am busy trying to make lots of things to replenish my stock!! Just need a few more hours for each day, if anyone has any to spare please!!

A few years ago I bought a Paper Mania Desk Calendar to alter, I made one for my Mum and then one for a friend and then someone asked me to make one for her Mum, in the end I made and sold quite a few.
Last year I really struggled to get hold of them, the odd shop had one, but they were just so hard to get.
I found out after much research, and contacting Paper Mania directly, that they had stopped making them. I was gutted and have just five left for this year and then that's it.
Apparently Graphic 45 do something similar (think it's 7x7, where as the Paper Mania one is an oblong shaped, about 6x9) so I may have to get one and see if it will replace these.
So here are a couple of photo's of the one I have just sold at the weekend.

This is the Cover

These are some of the inside Pages

They are made from Kraft cardstock, with a solid frame made from much stronger board, then 12 flip over pages to decorate with the months of the year.
They are just lovely, and a joy to make. I find them so therapeutic.
I always include a calendar tab on each page along with a lined spaced area to write dates as a reminder, then a few embellishments. It gets flipped over every month.
