Having it has given me the scope to stretch myself and step out of my comfort zone. I have the freedom to customise and personalise projects just as I want them. I find that very liberating.
I invested in a Zutter binder a good few years ago, and it has mostly sat collecting dust, and I wanted to put that to good use also.
My daily Pinterest searches have helped me to acquire a rather large collection of inspirational and motivating quotes and I was hoping to incorporate them into something useful, practical and actually quite pretty.
So this is what I came up with :-
It's my very own unique desk calendar. I was taken with the message on the cover. I truly hope that 2017 does become my year to sparkle - especially after 2016 which has been, in all honesty, pretty miserable. There have been various personal and health issues which I would never wish to bore you with. Plus - just look at all those wonderful talented stars of stage and screen who have departed, some really rather too soon.
So, looking upwards and onwards, each page of my calendar gives me some thought provoking quotes to digest. It's a world away from my usual card and box projects, but I really did have fun creating it and using the fabulous Minc to foil each page. Its glitzy and gold and sparkles - just as I hope 2017 does for me and all my family and friends near and far.
Thanks for stopping by today - and I hope you like today's sparkly project.
Bye for now.
