We celebrate a simple Christmas with my family. We don’t spend much money and we try to make homemade gifts or use our talents to make gifts for others. This year I decided to make calendars for everyone. It’s something useful and it won’t clutter up the house, use it for a year and recycle it. I’ve been sorting through all of my photos picking out the best ones for each month and I think I finally settled on a design (it sure was hard narrowing down the photos).

I finished up my calendar yesterday. I made them public on Lulu. I have a large one (13.5 x 19) and a small one (11×17). I ordered a bunch for Christmas gifts and I even ordered an extra to giveaway on my blog! All you have to do is comment on this post and I’ll hold a drawing when the calendars arrive in the mail. Good Luck!
