. . . . . Ready for 2019???

I am old school about many things - calendars is one of them. 
I love to keep myself organized with a paper style calendar 
that I am able to write things on. 

If you too love using a calendar and would like one of these, 
please leave me a comment and I will enter your name to win one of them. 
(tell me which cover is your favourite). 

This year I created small size calendars with decorated covers. 

At the end of the year, the calendar pages can be slipped out of the cover,
and can be replaced with a 2020 calendar or a notebook.

And since it is unlikely that I will post again before 2019.... 
I will sign off with best wishes for the remainder of 2018, and I will see you in the new year!

(draw will take place on Dec. 31 - item will be mailed on Jan. 2)

Paper Box Frames

I finally finished these little bit collages that I shared on my previous post. 

They will be part of a show in a Yukon gallery with the title of 'Light'. 

Therefore I wanted to keep the frames light both physically and in look.  
I also wanted the frame edges to be rustic and worn looking - similar to the paper edges. 

My desire was to have the pieces float above the false back of the box.

This was tricky to achieve and took too much time - but I like the final look. 

I put a small string through the back of the box, 
so these pieces can hang on a wall, or stand on a shelf. 

And here they all are - ready to head off to the gallery!
