So, assuming that you're still reading, now comes the fun part. After stumbling upon this idea from a very crafty lady, I have a new tradition this year of making a "plaque" for each month. This is the one I made for March:
And the good news is... you can make one yourself with this fantastic tutorial from Suzanne at Just Another Hang Up. She makes the template with wording and she will e-mail it to you free of charge! Very generous. They are very simple to make....I'm not a complicated project kind of girl. If I can do it, you can do it. Its pretty addictive to tell you the truth. Everytime I finish one, I am already thinking of how I want to design next month's plaque.
Here are the one's I've made so far for January and February:
Now keep in mind- I did not make up the words that are on the plaques, I just bought the materials and picked the color scheme that I wanted to go along with it. So- these are mine & they happily grace my bedside table.
Go make one for yourself!
Happy 1st of the month!
