About 5 years ago, I decided to make my own calendar pages to use for my family's schedule and then save in a scrapbook album. I include short newspaper articles on the page adjacent to each month. I want my descendants to see what a typical month was for our family within a typical month around the nation or world.
My friend Kim liked the idea and asked if I would make her calendar pages too. Then, our friend Renee wanted pages too. Maybe I should set up shop? Hmmm.
Depending upon my mojo, I make 3 - 4 months at a time.Each month includes a scripture and sometimes an inspirational quote. Here are January, February, and March 2011 calendar pages.
January's scripture is:
Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.
24 Keep your mouth free of perversity;
keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
"January" is made with American Craft thickers (or a close imitation). The original blue was too bright for the look I wanted. So, I sponged tan paint onto the letters to tone down the color. (Did you notice that I didn't get to the "11" in 2011? LOL)
I bought this Spellbinders Shapeabilities set on clearance at A.C. Moore for $8(?). I used it to make the snowflakes for January.
I've been enamored by shiny little things lately. As a result, much of my work has taken on glitter and rhinestones.
February's scripture is:
For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
March's scripture is:
The path of the righteous is like the morning sun,
shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
19 But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
they do not know what makes them stumble.
I hope you enjoy!
