Hello! Happy New Year! Yes, I know I haven't blogged in a really long time. I didn't even realize it's been that long. I think the days just fly by and time is accelerating! I haven't shared all of my projects from 2016 either. I stopped at Halloween and didn't share a bunch of my Christmas projects. I want to share that I did make more 2017 calendars to list in my Etsy store. They are late as usual and I still have 4 more calendars to use. The first batch I made, I ended up giving away as gifts to teachers and my kids' doctor's office because I just didn't have time to make new ones.
I made 4 Year of the Rooster calendars using Mama Elephant's Lunar Animals and Lunar Extras. I used a metallic gold cardstock back with pretty pink/red washi paper. The whole calendar has a chipboard backing and an easel back to stand.
I love this arched die set that I got from MFT. I think it fits the layout of the calendars nicely. The background is blended with distress inks and the images popped up on dimensional tape.
Before I go, I want to share this cute photo of some baby owls I crocheted. This pattern is by Josephine Wu and can be found HERE. I think mine might be just a tiny bit smaller because I used a smaller crochet hook size. I made 5 in different colors, one for each of us in the family.
