Our Gift to friends and family
I am going to show you 3 months of the calendar I made for 20 friends and family. I will post more of the months as soon as I can. My niece and her family are arriving tonight from Wisconsin, so I have lots to do before they arrive.
I wanted to give you a quick preview of what I made and why I haven't posted any cards for several weeks. I truly thought I could do this project in a 3 day weekend, but it took more like 3 weeks. I had such a good time and enjoyed it so much. Jon did all the wires with my new Zutter machine for me or I would have never gotten done. He enjoyed that too!
The display stand is something I will be carrying in my store. It is very nice and heavy and perfect for a calendar, cookbook, photo album or similar items.
I printed the calender in Excel. I first tried to stamp them and then realized how long that was going to take, so I went to the computer for help and I liked how it turned out.
More to come!!!
