My Christmas Projects...

Every Christmas for the last 5 or so years I've been making my mom & sisters something special for Christmas. Things, like card sets, coasters and stamped candles to name a few.
---
This year I planned to make these calendars last summer, got crazy busy this fall and only decided I HAD to do them on Dec. 23rd!!! Oh my, how crazy is that! Seeing as each one took me about 3-4 hours that is all I did until our get together!
---
I used 4 x 4 chipboards coasters, 2 - 12x12 designer papers and lots of flowers & embellies!
Here is a side view...

And here a few of the pages to show you some of the different, yet very simple layouts I used.





Since then, I decided to make a few more for friends!!! They are soo fun!

Theresa I love these! I made calendards this year for about 20 so I didn't do one for every month rather one for the whole year. It was lots of fun and lots of work!

These are so beautiful! I've been meaning to make calenders, another thing on my want to do list which just gets bigger and bigger. *Sigh* at least I can admire yours.
PS love the Christmas picks. It is always fun to see how others celebrate with family.
