I have been clearing up my craft spaces. I finally have the sewing room sorted, mostly because I found an alternative for the storage of my son’s drum kits (one proper drums, one electronic, both HUGE) and that has allowed a better placement of furniture. It really doesn’t help that that room is tiny, and has a sink in it – unlike most of the rest of the rooms there is not a fireplace in there. This house has eight sinks upstairs (only three in actual bathrooms) and seven fireplaces in all, plus another 4 that have been blocked off or walled over. It makes furniture placement a challenge! One thing I unearthed is a stash of clear CD covers, like I used to create the CD calendar project:
And this one:
I am about to start a major clear-out and re-org of my scrapbook space. This is likely to take some time LOL! My hope is that once the space is usable again I can actually get on with some crafting. And I think I might have to do another CD calendar as my first project. Although, given the state of this room, it might by 6 months into the year before I manage it. DOH!
I am always amazed at the number of requests I get for the same calendars over and over again. The Doily calendar is one of those – although I think the pretty circle CD one is still the most requested one.
As I have been doing, I’ve made these for 3 years.
Small but enough for you to see what they look like, I think
On a side note, I have noticed a number of posts on various blogs, doing a round up of 2020 calendars. I’ve noticed this in previous years as well. The thing is, they all seem to repeat the SAME calendars across the board. I usually have a calendar on those lists, and this year it is the leafy circles one:
In past years it has been this doily one, or the doily cards one. But every year it’s the same. One person posts a list and 10 other bloggers just shuffle the order and re-post the same darn calendars. I make SO many calendars, it can’t be that it is always, year after year, that every round-up blogger picks THE SAME ONE.
But hey, if that is the style that is trendy, so be it. At the very least it made me want to play around with the wreath concept a bit more. Here are two I like, although I feel the fonts need to be changed, maybe. Which do you prefer?
I am working on the Doily one-sheets, as requested by an anonymous commentor, who says she has used them for the lat few years and wants the 2020 version. Like with the month cards, I am doing 2020, 2021 and 2022. A number of people have said they like to make 18 month or 24 month calendar gifts so it makes sense to do that. ANYWAY, just a reminder – if you make a request, do be sure you add your info so I can get back to you.
It has been AGES since I made any Project Life things and I am not sure how popular it is at the moment. Comment if you still scrapbook that way. These cards are slightly less than 3×4 so you can maintain the black border and (I think) round the corners of your base cardstock if you want to mount them on a colour.
Hope they are useful. Hands up anyone who DIDN’T already know it was a leap year….
