Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE my hostess club gals????? Oh I have...silly me.....well let me tell you *yet* again how much I adore these women. We have had just about the same group of ladies since I was preggo with Elizabeth. They are a fun group of ladies that I am proud to call friends. So this year for Christmas I made my friends some presents :) I got these awesome unfinished wood perpetual calendars and thought they would make THE best little present! I asked each lady for her favorite color combo and I LOVE that each calendar is different. I used a little watered down reinker to paint the wood before adhering the dp onto the calendar. The reinker acts almost like a stain and I love that I can use that and still have a nice match to my papers. This was such a fun project to do! I have a few more calendars that I am dying to jazz up....once I find the time of course.
Here's a little close up of one of the calendars. I used the scalloped square to add the dates to the blocks. Then a little prima flower on each number to just add that bit of "Merry whimsy". I still need to make one of these babies for me......now to just decide on what colors :)
