Crazy For Calendars

Welcome to the very first challenge of the year for Saturday Spotlight 2010! This week the challenge is to create a calendar!! There are tons of ways to make and create calendars and this year I just had to try out this new idea I saw from my sweet and talented friend Cami. This is an easel drawer calendar. I love pink and Hello Kitty and went crazy with it! =)
My first photo shows the drawer closed, and the raised easel with Hello Kitty. Don't you just love her!!
Here is the side of the calendar to show the easel card on the top and the drawer pulled out. I actually made several of these calendars and gave a few away for Christmas and filled the drawer with post it notes and a gift card. The recipient can then keep the calendar and use it for the year! Such a fun, easy gift idea.
For more details on the challenge and prize, visit the Saturday Spotlight Challenge blog!!
The card below was sent to me from my friend Cami! As mentioned above, she is very creative!! (just take a look at her card!!)
Cami and I met through blogging and got to meet each other in person when we had our first bloggers social last year (2009). Since then, she and I have been in touch here and there and have developed a wonderful friendship! I call her my "craft mom" because she is so caring and always concerned about me, AND she makes sure that I don't stay up too late to craft! LOL! Believe me girls, I stay up late to craft since it gives me relaxation time but I do pay for it the next day when I have to go to work! LOL! I am sure most of you can relate! =)
Thank you so much Cami! I will cherish this card and the awesome friendship we have made!!
I sure hope that all of you will be participating in this challenge, it would be awesome to see what you create! Everyone needs a calendar!
Happy New Year everyone!
