30 DAYS OF BLOG POSTS & 30 REASONS TO BE THANKFUL

Hello Friends! I’m so excited to get started with 30 days of blog posts! 
The last few years I’ve seen on FACEBOOK that friends of mine will do a “I’m thankful for” each day of the month of November and I thought I would join in this year! 
Day #1: I am thankful for my family!
My Husband and My Children! 
I am thankful I have each one of them, without them my life wouldn’t be complete. Everything that I do each day, I do for them! Because I love them, and because God has blessed with them! 
My project for today: 
If you have been following my blog for very long you know that I make Calendars each year for Christmas Gifts for My Mom and My Grandmother. 
They have both come to enjoy these calendars so much and because of that I really have a LOVE / HATE relationships with the making these calendars each year. 
I love that My Mom and Grandmother Enjoy them so much, however I HATE that I have not got a chance to work on them before now! 
CALENDAR PREP – How I get these ready to go.

Episode 446

January 2014
For January I always, always use some kind of SNOWMAN something!!! 
I love, love, love anything and everything snowman!!!
I had this paper left over in my Christmas stash, and even though they are different from each other, they are pretty similar. 
The colors and design will be close enough. 
February 2014
Both calendars are the same for February and while I don’t think they “have to be the same” after years of doing these calendars I have found that it just makes my life alot easier if I keep the design, paper, and embellishments the same. 
I used some printable “Project Life 3×4 Cards” 
I found HERE: 
I can also get them done alot faster when most of the items and pages are the same. 
March 2014 {Grandma’s Calendar}
This I did for with my Grandma in mind.

I put this page together in one of my 

Catalog Cased Projects 

{You can view the orginal post and see me make this page from start to finish by clicking HERE}
Everything about this page reminded me of my Grandma and so when I was done with it I knew that I would use it in her Calendar. 
I will try and use the same designer paper for my Mom’s Calendar for March. 
I used.
I really love this paper, and it reminds me of spring!
That is it for me today!! Make sure you come back tomorrow for a NEW blog post!!!!
I will be sharing my progress on these Calendars all month long!
