Dry Erase Calendar

Don't you just love handmade gifts that are inexpensive and serve a purpose?  I do!

This dry erase calendar is just that and can be made for as low as approximately $7 (assuming you get the frame on sale for 50% off), including the marker!

I used the beautiful Avonlea paper to create this calendar and incorporated some Twilight cardstock.  Using our 12x12 Calendar (pictured below), I trimmed off the spiral binding - which will allow me to make 12 calendars for just $7.95) - and spruced it up a bit with B&T.  
Inserting it into a frame and writing on it as I saw fit...I created something cute and purposeful!  Gotta love that combination!  This one is hanging in my craft room and I love that I can switch out the calendars to fit the season or decor of the room.

If you would like to make one of these of your own, contact me for further details.  

Please take a moment to subscribe to my blog where you will receive an email in your inbox when I make a post to my blog - a few times a week.

Feeling the creative mojo,

Tagxedo Fun!

Isn't this cute?  The online program, called Tagxedo Creator, pulled words from my blog to make this collage.  It is fun to see the words that were pulled, many which reflect me and what role Close To My Heart plays in my life.

I just thought I would share this with you.  I first became aware of this site from my friend and fellow Consultant, Lisa Stenz.  Go check it out and see what collage is created for you!  You can find the program through .

Have a blessed and enjoyable week!
