You all know how hard it is to come up with that gift for a parent - especially the elderly parent that wants nothing and seems to have all they need. Three years ago I made my Mom a calendar for Christmas and she loved it. Year two she told me she was hoping to get another. So, for this year, number three I didn't want to disappoint. My Mom is 84 and she keeps this calendar in her living room. It is 6 x 6. The actual calendar download is from Taylored Expressions. And, she displays it in the 6 x 6 Frame Your Imagination Vertical Stand also from Taylored Expressions.
I took the pics in a rush and many I am not happy with and wish I had reviewed them before giving. But, you know that last minute Christmas rush to get it all done and wrapped because it is Christmas Eve. Christmas Day is traveling 1 1/2 hours to spend with her so retaking them at this moment in time is not possible.
A challenge for me this year is not to wait until the last month to get all my Christmas gifts done. Wouldn't it be so much simpler if I took care of each month as easily as it is turning the calendar page? Thus, allowing for better photos in better light with minimal editing.
For 2013, I used My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Girls for January - December. Each month has the girl with the flower of the month.
I have another calendar to post that was also a gift but for my Aunt done in a completely different size.
