2015 Calendars

Hello Blog Friends, followers and anyone who has just popped in for a wee look!!!
Welcome, I love having you here.    For those of you who don`t have an active Blog,  I thank you for all  your visits and lovely comments. All my other Blog visitors and followers, I thank you as well.   I always try to visit your Blogs, to see what you have been creating and return the compliment.
Bit quite here these past few days.  John, Audrey and the boys were here for our New Year Meal on Friday.  Great time was had by all, ate too much yet again  ...  however that`s it over.  We still have lots and lots of sweet things in the cupboards.  I can resist them no problem, I do find it hard to resist  ...  cheese.  Most of the cheese is gone so I have started my "healthy eating" regime.  Must get lots of weight off before the wedding, that`s for sure.  Hazel and I have a trip away in March/April.  We both have holidays in June then the Wedding.  After that Hazel and I can go off on our annual holiday and eat what we want!!!!!
I gave a few of my friends a 2015 Calendar as a "First Foot Gift" along with other goodies.

This is how they stand  ... I think they call it a "Tent Card"  They look rather bent they are OK honest
They will be used for a month then I am sure they will be forgotten about.  However I enjoyed making them and the people that got them seemed happy
That`s it from me for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time
That`s Thomas just phoned to ask if they can come tonight for a sleep over.  Better go see what food we have .......!!!!!  Will not be so quite here this evening that`s for sure!!!

    We, too, have done lots of eating over the Christmas period (things we never normally eat haha), I have only missed a couple of exercise days though, but I can feel that a few pounds have slipped on !! 'a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips' hahaha.

  26. Morning. What a lovely little gift to make and a lovely idea (something personal for children to do too) use to love doing this kind of thing when my daughter was off school, never thought about it as craft... Always messy play lol.
    Sitting here with laptop tray full of camellia flowers Ive cut, curling leaves over, under and squishing the tips to try and make different looks to them. Really wish my craft shop was open these flowers need their open petal partner to go with them!
    Hope you all have a lovely day, me ? Resting my back and shoulder after yesterday's Sue trial LOL.

  36. Lovely calenders I have a dozen of those calenders waiting on my desk to be made up by the time I get them done i will have to tear January off!!!!!. My daughter still uses the one I made her 2 years ago. It sits on her desk at work. She just tears the old calender off and sticks a new one on.
