Best Year Ever: Easel Calendar Card

2 0 1 5

HAPPY, HAPPY NEW YEAR again!! What better way to start off the new year and first workshop of the new year then with a 2015 easel calendar? It’s perfect to display on any counter or desk! This was a fun project we made at my workshop on Saturday. We had so much fun and as I watched everyone lost in making their projects it filled my heart to see them all working and not thinking about their problems. Crafting has a way of clearing our heads and allows us to really live in the moment.  THANK YOU for the continued support and friendships.  You can purchase these small calendars at various sites or print out a calendar on your home printer. I purchased mine at Christine has a lot of fun, little embellishment and such.
