A smile a Day!

Hello crafty friends! First I have to apologize for my absence these last few weeks. I recieved some terrible news 2 days before Thanksgiving that has really changed a lot of things in my life. My grandfather, the only "dad" I have ever known was diagnosed with Prostate cancer. When I found out I couldnt even breathe he is very important to me and I just can't picture my life without him. At first he was sad but still feeling ok but then over the last couple of weeks he has gotten sick. I have spent every free minute at his house helping my grandma care for him and getting him all his meds and making appointments. It has really taken a toll on me and I haven't had much time for crafting. I owe my DT girls sooo much for keeping things going! Jess has taken over my blog and has written many of the posts and taken care of prizes, and a bunch of other behind the scenes stuff lol Thanks Jess and thank you to all my DT girls for being there for me right now!

 So lets get away from that sad stuff and get to the craft talk!
Today I decided to let my grandpa rest and stayed home with the kiddos, wandering around the house I found myself in my favorite spot, my craft room! So this is one of 3 mini calendars I have made for my mom and two aunts as stocking stuffers!

First this mini calendar is for my momma! She is pretty girly and loves soft colors I hope she will like it! Sorry about the glare I forgot to take off the plastic cover.
All the sentiments I used on this came from my Smile on! set.
I used different sentiments for each month
My mom's birthday is in March that is why I used this sentiment
Materials used:
  • Mini Calendar
  • Elena (greeting farm wild sprouts line)
  • Craftysprouts Smile on stamp set
  • paper pink paislee stack
  • Prisma color pencils
Be sure to come back tomorrow and friday for two more mini calendars! These are so fun to make and dont take a lot of time! I also want to let you all know that we will not have a challenge this week and will resume our challenges after the new year, but we will be announcing the winner of the Photo op challenge friday!
