2013 Calendar.

Recently, I was in a swap with some great "fake" online friends. The talent was amazing!

My swap buddy was in Canada,,,,,,,,and I knew I wanted to make a desk calendar,,,,,,so I had to go digging for a few Canadian holidays.  For instance,,,,,,,,Canada Day is on July 1st and is the equivilent of our 4th of July,,,,,,,,,,,and Thanksgiving is in October.

So without further ado,,,,,,,Amanda's calendar,,,,,,month by month.

I hope Amanda really enjoys it,,,,,,I even put a little poem on the back.

I hope that you've had
a wonderful year.
Now that you're done
don't toss me on my ear

Take a picture you love
for each of the months
and glue over top
of each calendar fun.

So keep me forever
don't throw me away.
A mini book I'll make
of some sweet, precious days.

The hardest part about this little project was keeping the embellishments down so it wasn't too thick to sit nicely on a desk.
