Quickie Calendar

Here's a quickie calendar I made today.

I grabbed a piece of wood I had in the garage,

added a little white paint,

and made an enlarged copy of the months from this refrigerator magnet.

I glued on the calendar, and a copy of one of my personal photos.

A little distressing on the entire piece, and I'm done.  This would also work as a multi-page calendar, but I like calendars I don't have to flip.  Next year, I'll just glue the new calendar over the old one.

Good night.

  4. You make it look so easy! I wish I had a tenth of your creative talent. Another gorgeous and unique Villabarnes creation. Thank you! I'm going to make one for my loft!

  5. That is so cute! your "quickie" projects would take me hours. I don't know how you do so much!

  9. That's a great idea, Rosemary! Sometimes those calendars can be pretty ugly or have advertisements you don't want to look at all the time.

  13. You do make it look so easy. I always start an easy project and it ends up taking me six times longer than it should. You seem to have the opposite luck. Very pretty - love your photo.
