Before we get too far into the New Year and your 2010 Calendar covers have been tossed into the recycle bin, I want to pitch an idea to you. Don't throw them ~ the mini pictures, (on the back of the covers ~ the ones that give you a sneak peek at each month) make great quick & easy cards! Here's a snapshot from one of last years calendar covers: (Yes, I'm a packrat ~ I hoard all the covers!)
But look at why:
Doesn't get much easier (and cuter) than that, does it? Spring IS a beautiful thing, isn't it? I can hardly wait....
Let's stay on "task" tho and remember our recycling project ~ so easy to get diverted by thoughts of spring. Well, maybe we can combine the two and look at another simple, simple project appropriate for the next month ~ a little pocket to tuck our "happy" thoughts in:
No way, I could throw that sweet bird image in the garbage. Aren't they adorable? Cupcakes, birdies and flowers ~ what else do we need in life?
As if the above two paper crafts weren't enough to make you think twice, can you imagine how much fun I'm going to have with my 2010 Calendar cover:
I see five star "amazing" coming from these mini pics. Did I manage to convince you to pull those covers out of the recycling bin?? I hope so!
PS I received my most wonderful "Gardening by Letter" envelope in the mail January 2nd. It was like Christmas at my house all over again that day. I have gone thru the cards and gifts several times over and will post about it tomorrow. Believe me, it is an envelope worthy of its own post!
