Turning the Page January 2018

Tomorrow we turn the page on our calendars to a new month and a new year.

I make calendars each year and I've been sporadic about sharing them with you so
I thought I'd set up a regular post on the last day of each month "Turning the Page".

I hope you enjoy these posts.

Here's our January page.

By the way, the calendars are clipped together and can be displayed on an easel
or hung on a push pin or magnetic hook.  We all have a different way to display them.

Happy New Year!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

What a fabulous idea Bonnie! I LOVE it! I make a printed one each year with all our family and friends birthdays printed in red in the date squares (I'm awful at remembering to look in my diary), that way I don't miss anyone! Have a healthy and happy year here in 2018! Love & Hugs. Hazel xx

Bonnie, what a wonderful idea and what a terrific job you did on that holly sprig! I find it hard to get that beautiful watercolor look you achieved on this. So glad you are sharing these with us!

Your calendars are always so creative and what a wonderful way to show them by turning the page each month!! Just like those that receive them, it's something special to look forward to each month to see your beautiful monthly designs. xx

I just bought that holly stamp - your use of it is so inspiring as you coloured it perfectly. I'm definitely inking it up soon! And I really like your idea of a regular post for your calendar pages!
