I love making things for my family b/c they all get soooo excited. They like it so much they EXPECT a handmade item of some sort. This year I'm making calenders for each household that will showcase a different family member each month. I have ALOT of work to do.

yup, likewise ~ one of my sisters & my Mom like the get made things, not so much the other one. I say, why give the gift of time and creativity to those who don't appreciate it?!

I don't make anything for my in-laws!

I bought my mother a card organizer the Christmas before last and intended to make card refills last year as well as this one. I rechnically still have time for this year.

Yes, I am supposed to make calendars this year too!

I
like to look at snow from inside. I also LOVE fresh, fallen snow and watching my kids play in it!

HL has the desk calendars...they are only about 5 inches tall with the stand and the flip pages. I can look and get you a couple next time I go in if you want.
