A big mess! I am still working on my JYC book but of course am not up to date! ( that's all the papers etc to the left of the desk.  I am in the middle of making around 20 mini calendars ( I have made 6 so far!) They WILL get done but not all in time for Christmas ( it will give me something to do over the holiday ;))

 I have three completely finished and popped into bags.

This one needs a little something more on the cover , some ribbons added to the book ring and then onto the next.
They are quite fiddly and take about 3/4 of an hour to make each one .

If you would like to join in with the hop - Pop over to Julia's blog to find the info.

  1. Hi Sue.....you ARE a busy girl. Good luck with getting them finished.

  2. Well done for finishing 3 ... the size would mean lots of fiddly work. But I am sure worth all the effort.

  4. Wow! They certainly are beautiful. And in a special little bag. So pretty. They make really good presents. People usually cherish something hand made.
    Have a great week and don't get too stressed,

  5. They look so cute Sue - certainly a task for you.

  8. Love those mini calendars, but 20?! You are very brave, I hate to make 2 of anything. 20 would kill me LOL
    Happy WOYWW!

  9. Hope you manage to get all your calendars finished. You must let us have a better look next week. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 25

  10. Oh my word they are lovely what a great gift idea. Although, cough cough, maybe not in huge numbers like that! The gift bags look amazeballs too, no wonder the JY is a little behind!

  11. Love those little calendars and the gift bags are very elegant!!

  12. I would have been by sooner, but my life took a major meltdown today when my washing machine hose broke. After I got all the water and mess cleaned up, I was off to buy a new hose and install it.

    Those are incredible gifts and the bags are equally gorgeous. I understand fiddly, and know how long a project like those calendars can take. Hope you get back on track with your JYC soon.

    Happy belated WOYWW from #1.

  13. Your calenders are great, what a lovely idea - I love the pearly heart too! You've certainly set yourself a task making 20! Have a good week,
