Happy New Year Creating!

Though the tiny studio is not quite put back together, I was able to squeeze in there for some much needed creative therapy yesterday.

Using this set from House of 3 (which by the way, all their Christmas stuff is 50% off til Friday!), Mini-Postcard 2010 Calendar Printable Kit, I made this:
I used the same concept to bind the calendar pages as I did in this post: Kickin' It Old School
The sparkly, dangly thingamajig is a vintage clip on earring. I can just picture it on a formally dressed middle aged 1950's housewife! The lace trim is from an old collar and that last bit I have of that. The rest is seriously old stash that is every bit as beautiful to work with as it was when I first came upon it. That label with 2010 on it? Very old Recollections. ~sigh~ I miss Recollections. The printed paper is old Autumn Leaves Foofala. ~another sigh~ I miss Foofala. At least I have this to remember them by. ;)
Have a Happy New Year! See you on the flipside!

The calendar is super cute! If you ever get out to San Diego, you'd love Paper Tales. It's a shabby chic scrappin' heaven! Love the name of your blog!

Gorgeous calendar. Love all the bling. Happy New Year to you too.

Are you coming to Virginia Beach in Feb? Jenni Bowling will be here. Drool, drool. I'd love to meet up with you in her classes. And for a drink or 5.

Love your new look. Very pretty.

Oh, this is so pretty! I love it and I agree with everybody here - I love the background and header, very pretty! Let's go to VA Beach and see Jenni Bowlin!

Also, you should enter this in this week's Opus Gluei - you used from your stash of stuff!

I need to finish unpacking and organizing my (s)crap/craft area and you can come over to play!
