My 2012 Calendar...

 I finished my calendar. I am so happy with the way it turned out.

I had learned some things as I create the calendar  for Alison; I wish I could do a few of her months over.
I had wanted each month to feature a holiday of that month or something that was pertinent to her. I didn't always have just the right small stamp/ embellie to do that. I also ran out of time because I had to get it mailed to her before Christmas.  I never got to go back and put some bling in the corners and tuck in a little lace, etc..

7 Gypsies- Artist Printer's Tray.
The project used up lots of bits and pieces.
When I do this over for 2013, I think I will make it all one theme. Maybe all flowers or all cats. I'll do a mock up before I actually stamp. I treat each month like a little vignette. I want the calendar to tell a story.

I'm taking this to work tomorrow to let the staff see what I've been up to recently.

Then my next problem is to find a spot for my masterpiece here in the house. I'm excited.
