Today is my birthday! And, I'm 25 :)
This year has been a really great year, maybe the best so far! Last year, at this time, I quit a job of 3.5 years and was pretty unsure of what the future held. I did have a new job to go to, but it wasn't full time. Within a couple of months I landed a couple of freelancing jobs to fill in the time I wasn't working and now with the Etsy shop, I'm pretty busy!
I've met SO many great, wonderful and inspiring people that it truly amazes me when I look back at everything. I mean, if I would of never left that job, all these things that happened this year, probably would of never had a chance to happen!
So, all that to say, I'm very thankful this year. And very thankful for all of YOU! You guys are great!! And, I'm saving you all a piece of cake :) (It's chocolate by the way!)

Check out Melonie's She did pockets on her calendar and I love this idea! Put little keepsakes in them as the months go on and when the years over you have a keepsake that will last forever! Imagine 10 years from now opening it up and being able to pull out your little memories. You can even stick journaling tags in them and journal on them a little summary at the end of the month about what happened or something you want to remember forever. Mel, you did an awesome job!! (Click on the photos to make them larger!!)
The calendar kits are shipping and available in the shop! And, if you've already bought one, make sure you upload your photos to the flickr group!! I can't wait to see everyones!! And a huge "THANK YOU" to the girls!! All your calendars are fabulous!

And... I'm so excited!! I decided to dive into the 365 project on flickr. I'm going to try and take a photo a day, for a year. I started September 1st and it's going to be exciting to look back in the future and see where I was, and compare it to where I am then... Hopefully I can keep up with it.. haha I'm already a couple of days behind... And, I know I've said it before, but there is just so much inspiration on flickr, love it!! I've been trying to figure out how to make those mosaic's out of your fav photos... anyone know how?
I ended up taking new photos of the calendar kits :) Those last photos just didn't do it justice!! And please check back soon for the pictures of the kits the girls put together! I just got to see a sneak peak of one and I CANNOT WAIT!! Sooo much fun and color!!

Check back around the 15th to see what they have created, I know it's gonna be awesome and I can't wait to see!!
And, here are what the complete kits look like:
Lots of journaling spots and goodies! Some of these journaling spots are printed on sticker paper, so leave the glue at home! This is something new you will be seeing around the shop in the next coming weeks. I'm totally in love with the sticky paper! You can also get another set of the journaling tags, with an add-on, so you'll never run out!
The kits are now on pre-sale at etsy, the response to the pre-order requests were great, so I decided to put them up a couple of days early. These will start shipping on the 10th. (I know, I said the 8th earlier, but I didn't clue in and realize that was a Saturday and the Post Office is closed... LOL! Sorry about that, I need to stop trying to plan things out late at night!)
And... geez it feels like it's calendar crazy in the shop! All the tags, and now the kits ;) Lots of fun though, I promise! Now, I just need to get my Christmas stuff in order and off to the printers! There's never a dull moment around here!!!
