It's January (and we're hoping for snow)

Happy New Year everyone! 

I'm not really making any resolutions this year but have decided that every month I will make myself a calendar page. I was inspired to do this by the Trimcraft website and their calendar templates can be downloaded for free here . Hopefully if I put this on my wall I'll get better at meeting deadlines without stress!

As I write this, on New Year's Eve, we are being battered by yet another storm. Much of the UK has suffered terribly this winter and, although Somerset has escaped the worst this year, our thoughts are with those not so lucky. This weather has made me long for some snow- enough to close schools and workplaces for the day so that we can build snowmen and throw snowballs. We rarely get snow here in the South West but maybe if I wish hard enough...anyway that was the inspiration for my layout.

The paper used is from Trimcraft's First Edition Christmas Wishes pad. The snowman and sentiment are Crafter's Companion Nordic Christmas Stamps and I've coloured the snowman with Spectrum Noir markers. 

Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments. I hope you all have a very Happy and prosperous 2016. Cathy x

  4. Hello Cathy, love this calender and such a good idea to make a page every month. Love the snowman he is really cute.


  5. Your January calendar layout is absolutely gorgeous Cathy. I can see you prolonging January by a couple of days, so that you can keep looking at this beautiful page a bit longer ;).
    All the best for 2016, Heike xx
