Close To My Heart Product Spotlight BLOGHOP: Christmas Projects

Welcome to my blog!

You should have come here from JILL'S blog.

I really hope you like my Christmas gift idea.  Its an Event Calendar.  The idea is you write in birthdays, anniversaries, etc so that you can see at a glance the important events in your life - year after year - the calendar is re-usable.

Pair this calendar with a dozen or so cards and voila!  You gift gets even better because now not only will your recipient be able to see the special events, they will also be prepared to send cards.  You could make the cards and calender from coordinating paper if you really want everything to go together.

*** my supplies are meant to be a suggestion.  I have a LOT of supplies listed, so I encourage you to do what I would do and see what you already have on hand and then purchase 2 or 3 new things instead of the ENTIRE list I have above.  GOOD LUCK!!
I hope you get some good ideas from my calendar.  If you make one I would LOVE to hear about it.

Next on the blog hop is:  KRISTIE

Happy Holidays!

  2. Beautiful! Thanks for the download!

  3. Very nice! It reminds me that I have one 1/2 completed that needs finishing... ;)

  4. Love this. I so need to make one of these because I am notoriously bad about sending cards late!!

  5. the calander is so cute, and i would be so easy to make cards to match

  6. What a fun idea to create cards to give WITH the calendar! I've given Event Calendars in the past and they always go over as loved gifts!

  7. I think that a calendar is a perfect gift. Your artwork is adorable for each and every month.
