Jaded Blossom Guest Designer

Good Morning and happy Wednesday! 

Today I am on the Jaded Blossom blog as a Guest Designer for the day!  Thank you, Candace and Michelle, for this opportunity to share my project!

Here it is – a desk calendar!  Originally this was only going to be a year calendar and then it would need to be remade.  Most of the time I share my crafting projects with my husband and he suggested making the calendar part removable, so it could be reused!  The man is brilliant!  There is an enormous amount of worth that initially goes into the calendar, however, here on out the monthly insert is the only thing that needs to be updated. Enjoy!
