Seasonal Holiday Calendar

Hi there! Today I thought I'd share with you a patterned paper calendar I made for my mom. You can find the other two other calendars I made here and here.


My mother loves holidays and I remember fondly when we were growing up how she would decorate for each holiday with lots of decorations set all over the house.


In Florida the seasons don't really change outside, so it was especially fun as a kid to have all of the decorations up in the house to mark the changing of the seasons and holidays throughout the year.


Even though all of us are grown now and not living in the house, she still decorates for every holiday and season and I'm so glad she does. :)


So I knew when making a calendar for her that I wanted to incorporate the holidays and seasons for her. 


A way to thank her for all of the warm memories from growing up! :)


I used various PTI patterned papers from several different pads. The months are stamped with PTI's Calendar Basics set.


And here are the remaining months...






Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful, sunshine-filled day! :)

The calnder is realy pretty, I see that you have decided to use a patterned paper instead of stamping every page of the calender, its really neat!

Monica - this is such a *CLEVER* idea! I didn't get that set because the amount of work to stamp a calendar was really beyond me for ONE project - but this is manageable, creative, seasonal - and brilliant!! And your mum will still think of you every time she looks at it!!
