I love this hobby!

One of my favorite digi designers, Erica Zane, and I have teamed up to create this calendar that conveniently fits into a CD jewel case:

Here's a closer look:

One of my layouts was featured - it's funny how I can work on some layouts for days and they can be ho hum, but this one I whipped together in less than half an hour.

edited: layout was pulled for publication in the December edition of the Artisan Notebook - !!!

This hobby is so much fun and a good outlet for me in the midst of the crescendo of holiday busy-ness!

I am completely *IN LOVE* with this calendar!!! You did such an amazing job :) I have no idea how you keep up with your new photo business, homeschooling, creating such amazing goodies, AND keeping our CT in line but you seem to do every bit of it with perfection!! You are amazing and I feel so lucky to know you and work with you over at SM :)

Thanks for sharing!

Can't imagine why you say you are feeling swamped :)! You are like the energizer bunny...keep going and going and going... The calendar is beautiful and I absolutely love that layout. It's just way too cute!

I love this hobby too! Now if I could only find more time to do it! It sounds like you are as crazy busy as I am. Lovin' your CD calendar. Very Cute! So what is your secret for finding time to do everything? Mine is giving up sleep or pawning off the kiddies on my dh. Have a Happy Turkey Day!

Joanie said...

Oh, I DO love this. I've heard lots about the CD case calendars, but I'd never seen one. I love the concept BUT I love your LO's even more. You do the cutest things and the best extractions!

Beautiful! What a creative idea, my amazing friend! Happy Thanksgiving, Heather! I actually finished a project myself (which I can't post on my blog because I'm sending some to relatives). It's 4x4 tiles from Lowe's, 4.4 photos of sweet times with relatives, 15 layers modpodged onto the tiles, an acrylic spray sealer, cork backing (from Michaels), and that's it! They could be coasters, although they look pretty cool propped up as well. It could be something you're kids would like doing (although maybe TOO basic for them! )
