The Family Calendar

Did I mention that I made a Christmas Gift? I think I may have mentioned it. Just one gift made several times over, for the family. Well, it was, as they say, a labor of love - and I don't know if another will every come around. I worked on the design for many computer busy days - fun but quite time consuming. And then there was the work on the pictures - photos attempting to capture and remind us of the wonderful days gone by. Then came the punching and binding, and the typical imperfections that exist in any handmade gifts. And finally the distress when things weren't perfect, weren't "just so," but there was nothing to be done but wrap it up and give it.

And so we came to Christmas Day, and I hope the family enjoys the gift. The cover page is above and first page is below. What do you think?

It is lovely. I like it. It's not one to be written on, but it is one that will be enthusiastically used every day.

Happy New Year. :)
