Perpetual Calendar & Monthly Ornament

Hey all... thought I would share another little something non-card related, but definitely craft related, that sits on top of a little cabinet next to the front door. A few years ago I took a class where we made perpetual calendar inserts for a square glass plate. It stays on the glass with 2 small circular magnets by Basic Grey, which you at ACMoore. They are thinner than the magnets you would get otherwise. There are about 13 or 14 inserts for the plate. This year, at some point, I would like to make a whole new set using the Stick Chicks from American Artstamps. We'll see how that goes because that was my plan for last year! lol Anyway, in the shadow box is a St. Patrick's Day themed quilted ball. I made these at Christmastime for gifts and decided to make a "perpetual" quilted ball for each month of the year to kind of go along with my calendar insert. Haven't even started the one for April, but I know it will be an Easter style made with pastels. I see it in my head, it's just a matter of gettin' busy! I'll make sure that each month, whether or not I've made an ornament, I'll share what's on my cabinet.

One day, when I'm not so stressed about getting *everything* done, I'll take pictures of the cabinet to show. I painted it over 10 years ago. I love it! It's shabby chique style.

Til the next time...
