I'd planned to make a calendar for my mom for Christmas. The focus would be her children (three daughters) and grandchildren (a total of nine) and husband. And then got a code this morning from Shutterfly for a free calendar. Perfect! Although the deadline, this Friday, not so perfect. Tell me I can do it!


I wanted (needed!) to keep it simple so I created a template and will be using it (or a flipped version) for every month. If you're thinking of doing something similar and you don't want to reinvent the wheel, I recommend Layer Works No. 121 which I basically copied for this project.


We're Irish, so St. Patrick's Day is something we enjoy in our family. There are two grandchildren with birthdays in March, my older sister's oldest (who's birthday is *on* St. Patty's Day!), and Jaimee.
