This year for Christmas I made my Mother and my Mother-in-law both calendars.  (I made my Mother-in-law a calendar last year, and it was such a hit, that I have now decided to make it a tradition.) Anyhow, I just had to show off the ones that I made. This one I made for my mom:

I made a separate calendar and picture for each month of the year and attached magnet strips to the back of each one, as well as to the hanging “thing” (that is the technical term for “a piece of chipboard that is covered with scrapbook paper.”) If that made absolutely no sense you can just view the picture below:

And here is the one I made for my Mother-in-Law:

  6. OMG, those look perfect for projects to hand out this holiday season. I think my kids would love helping me make them as well. Great idea, I wasn’t sure yet what to do with the family, but I always try to have a project for all of us to do together. i think it helps us all bond better as family. :) Thanks
