All I know is that I need register paper…

and everything else is a blur :)

Literally… I can’t remember what today is. Good thing we made calendars for 2007 to help with this!

These are my pages… February and April. Not exactly what I wanted to do… (they didn’t turn out as planned… I wanted more paper layers but really only had glittered layers) but they are cute :) The envelope in February opens up and has a little glittered valentine with the Eiffel Tower on it that says “La Vie en Rose”.
Once all the pages are together and I have permission from all who was involved, I’ll post the other pages. It was super fun! I was surrounded by artists who have their finger on the pulse of the paper craft world, so I felt like a fish out of water… but isn’t that the point? To learn from our fellow artists and have a finished calendar that has interesting pictures for each month? I think so :) OH! and we ate Diane Salad from Green Street East in Pasadena… which is just delightful and made us all so happy :)

So, here I am… whining about how tired I am. Day 19 of 31 days without an entire day off… I’ve already kicked a cold! Yay to lots and lots of hot tea and cold-eeze!!! We’ve been so busy… fellow bloggers have stopped by and I didn’t even know it :( I promise to find a day this spring to invite all local bloggers over for tea and a private shop tour or tour of my Mom’s house :) (It’s not THAT exciting… but it would be fun to get together! Perhaps a jaunt to Descanso Gardens or something??)

I took some time to look at a few other blogs tonight and I must say… there is so much creativity and talent out there, you guys are awesome… I’m both overwhelmed and inspired :) Who would have thought we would all be blogging and sharing all this fun stuff :) It’s quite delightful!!! If you find a blog you think I should look at, send it my way, I love to see new stuff!!! :)

My brain is on a mental vacation while I continue to wrap presents and hum Holiday songs :) What I really want to do is finger paint…. or do messy pastel art…

I think we’re gonna need a bigger scanner…

    I look forward to your local bloggers event! I’m a SoCal resident and would love to come visit. P.S. I think you deserve a break, spa day, or maybe just a nap. ; )

    […] of December this year… I made 13 advent calendars. This was a lot of x-acto knife-ing! ugh! Last year I was in charge of February and April… which weren’t as […]
