Maya Road Calendar

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.  The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.  ~Henri Nouwen


For my long time friend's birthday, I wanted to create something that could be appreciated all year round.
I thought and pondered for some time...then the light bulb started glowing, and soon it was shining bright!!

Many moons ago, I saved and had forgotten all about a free printable >>  Maya Road calendar. 

And, in my long lost stash was a chipboard book by Colorbok. It had only 5 pieces and I needed 6, so I could create a month on each side. 
That took me on a search for another package. I found one right away on Ebay and had it in my hands in no time!

I put the two together, along with patterned paper, ribbon, embellies, rub ons, cut aparts and inks, and stencils, and markers....you name it!!

Let me tell you, the mojo was flying and I was on a roll!

Linda adored her gift and needless to say, I had fun creating it! 
She can appreciate the time (and love) that goes into homemade creations. 


Till Next Time...
