Forever Calendar Plaque Swap

Hurry and sign up you have until Sunday afternoon.
Deadline to complete project is Jan 30th it must be shipped the week of Jan 31st.

This is a fun to do project that you will treasure and use for a very long time. *I would like to thank Deb Kravec for sharing this idea with me.

You will need a wood plaque that measures minimum 15 inches wide. I found an inexpensive 18 inch wood plaque at Micheals for $3.99. You will need 12 small prefferably wooden chips in any shape for every month of the year. See below picture of sample. You will alter plaque and 12 chips with months to your partners liking in style, color or/and theme. You can paint it, use paper, crackle it, use fabric just be creative and unique. You can use any word for plaque. You can attach chips/months to plaque with hooks, Velcro or any other unique way. And if you have a way to do this that we have not thought of please share with us so that we can maybe use your idea. Your partner will then add her own chips in any material like wood, plastic or chipboard under every month of all the names and dates desired once she receives it.

Here is a list of materials needed:

Wood Plaque (1)
Wood Chips (12)
Round Jump Rings 12mm( jewelry sections of craft stores) (12)
Eyelet Hooks (12)
***Added chips for name and dates will be furnished by receiver when she gets plaque. You can make chips for that of chipboard to reduce expense***

Drill for making holes on chips if needed, you might be able to use your Big Bite instead

If desired “remember that plaque needs to be hung so make sure you add ribbon to the top of it”

Paint
Paper
Ribbon
String
Velcro
Embellishments any kind
Lace/trim

This swap will end on Jan. 30th so you will need to mail the week of the 31st.

I will partner each of you. It will not be a ss swap this time because I want you all to communicate with your partner on your likes for the plaque.
I have added three groups to start it. If you want a different style please let me know and I will add it.
If joining for 1st time in my swap you must furnish me with your full name and address. When mailing you must add tracking # to package, you must mail the week of the 21st of Jan it is a must.

***If you have flaked in any of my swaps or someone else’s swap you will not be welcomed here, so don’t bother joining.***
***If you are not sure you will be able to complete it on time, please do not sign up***


Here is sample: this is blog of how it was done:

Look for Family Dates Sign for instructions.

Here is what I bought at M's.

What a cute idea. Good place to keep track of birthdays for the month.

Did you see the email that Graphic 45 sent out? They showed how to do the calender cover and it was awesome.

Style.... I think that I am leaning toward the shabby chic. I have been loading up on pearls and lace.

Oh this is going to be so much fun. I have a little note book with birthdays under the months. I have been thinking about how to keep them all together in a better more visible manner. So happy that I will now have something. I think I may need to have more than one. Need one just for my scrappy sisters. I hate missing birthdays of ladies that have become so very special to me. I start off the year with a birthday (mine).

Hi ladies, this looks so creative and I would love to participate in this one. One question to clarify before I decide to play. If I'm understanding correctly, do we just do the "Family" plaque with the months hanging off of it? Then our swap partner (the recipient) finishes the project with the name and date chips?

Iam so excited that I think that I will make one for my MIL for Christmas. I started thinking that this is perfect for all the kids, spouses and most of all grandchildren's birthdays. She will love it.

For this one thou, I was thinking that the Graphic 45 'Place in Time" paper that I bought is perfect.

Working with wood eh? I think I can handle this. I will have to use the drill while dh is at work cause he will want to take over that part. I could use this as I am always forgetting whose birthday is in which month.

I am leaning towards Vintage! as I love the earth tones it has. Graphic 45 is my favorite paper line.

I think using hooks for the months to dangle from would be better than the eyelete. My children are still young enough to have more kids (I have two who are not even married yet) and I think it would be easier to just slip off the month to add a new chip.

I personally don't think we'll need a drill. Most wood is soft enough that you can just turn the eyelet or hook into the wood since it has a point on it.
Love the idea of these for gifts. I'll have to mark that on my sure wish I had done that list.

You can even do it to keep track of chores like instead of months it could be days. Monday, Tues, Wed etc.....
and under each day you add list of chores like laundry, groceries, pay bills etc....

Me....raising my hand......I have a question!!!!!

So you make just the plaque and the month thingys.....do you also include painted thingys for you sister to add names and dates. So they will match the plaque.

Did the above run on thought make sense to anyone

If the one year old downstairs doesn't stop 'screaming' I will flip. He cried for 11 months, now he thinks he is talking and just screams day and night and all through the night. Wouldn't it be nice if they at least closed the door to their apartment.

But I digress.....so, who has the answer?

I am going to include some painted ones form nmy partner so that she can write on them and use it right away. Martica said in one of the post (page 2 - 2nd post)earlier that it is up to the person that receives it to add the date thingies that hang under the months. I thought that it would be nice to have some in the same color shade to use asap upon receipt. Just me.

Hey chicas!

Had a nice time at 'the' SIL's!

Rhonda, that is interesting about the child being hearing impaired. I wonder..... It can be really annoying like now when dh is trying to sleep and they have the baby on the second floor with the door to the hallway opened. The baby's grandparents live on the second floor.... The babies parents and siblings live in the basement...not sure why they don't take care of their kid!!!!! Funny thing is....I LOVE this lil boy...whenever he sees me and I start acting silly, he just laughs and giggles. He's adorable until he starts the siren going......

Martica, dh and I are going shopping tomorrow. I'm gonna look for the supplies. I'd like to be in the Shabby Chic Group.

Are the plaques all to say "FAMILY" or is it up to our partner to choose a title?

Geez, I sound like I've never been in a swap. But if we are paying $13 to go over the bridge, I'd like to get whatever supplies I can tomorrow. Imagine.....$13 dollars to cross a bridge!

Geez, if only I could swim

I just checked the front page and I am very excited. I have never had the pleasure of being partnered with Linny. What a treat! Linny, I am not picking and what every you make, I know I will love and use for years to come. You just let me know what your preferences are and I will work them in (ribbon hanger or hook on back/ Family or something else/ do you like the place in time paper from Graphic 45 or would you rather I used something else).
I have the perfect spot to hang it by my desk so that I can keep up with what cards I need to make for whom.

How sweet of you to give me free reign....you sure you don't have any preferences??? What would you like ribbon or hook thingy? Family or something else???

Now I just need to get my plaque. Debbie, thanks, but I'll just order it from JoAnn's. They have a really pretty shaped plaque on their website. They ship pretty quickly.

Now I'll be sleepless thinking of how I will create this plaque. Anyone else take their projects to bed!!!!

Family or Birthday's ----- what ever comes to you.
Ribbon is a nice touch however I can hang on a hook thing too. Just see what you come up with and I will love it. A Linny original.

Scrap Attack... looks like we are paired up. Do you have any preferences on yours? paper, paint, saying??? I have that paper you talked about when you signed up, the diary stuff. So if you would like I can use that paper.

As to me, Family is fine... I am a lace and pearls type person. I like earth tones tans, off white, peach and greens.

Would you rather have Birthday's or stick with Family?
I already have a design in mind. I too do much of my designing while in bed in sleep prep mode. Sometimes while I am asleep. As we have decussed in the past, I do my best work when I am asleep. Maybe I should try falling asleep sitting in my scrap room ..... hmmmmmm

You got it!!!

I like Birthdays for me.
Hey you might find your supplies while you are sleeping too. I do remember that you like to shop in your sleep. Careful not to re-order. You may have already done it while in dream land.

I will dream up something fab for you.

Awesome, happy to have you as my partner too Pam! Let's see, I think I'd like mine to read "Birthdays" instead of Family. I have a terrible time keeping track of my friends birthdays so this will be wonderful for me! As far as colors you can surprise me Pam! I like all sorts of vintage colors so I'm sure I'll love what your going to do. You can mix and match any three or four colors for the months and that will be great too! I plan on displaying this in my craft room so feel free to check out the pics I've got in my gallery.

Now how about you Pam, Birthdays, Family or Friends? What would you like on your plaque? And what are your favorite colors? I just received the new Graphic 45, Place in Time collection. I think there are a few nice vintage colors to choose from in that collection. If you like pinks and tans, I also have more of the Ladies Dairy collection too. Whats your preferance?

Hubby let me move the gym equipment out of the front room to make room for mom's tree! Put it up yesterday and it's finely starting to feel like Christmas around here. Have a wonderful day ladies! Hugs to all...

Hi girlies.....how's your day going.

Well, I now see why people text....it makes life easier....you can just stop a moment, text (while you remember what you want to day ), and get back to what you are doing. Been texting today....hope I haven't been too big a pain in the arse!!!

You are not a pain to me. I love texting for the same reasons. I forget things that I want to say or ask people if I do not do it right away. Text away in this direction. We got a lot decided today. While I was in a training class too.
Wait until you start sending pics to people by text. Sneak peaks and stuff. Wait... I did mean of projects for all you dirty minded girlies.

Martica, my GYN told me to take D3 for building my immune system. 1000mg per every 50lbs of your weight. I bought gummie Vitamin C and D3 and I take them every day. I can not afford to be sick again. DH marked on the callender when I was sick so he can keep track of how often I get sick. I might die before I let on to him that I am sick next time. Where are those vitamins????

Now you understand why I bought gummy vitamins. I trick myself into believing it is a candy treat. I love gummy bears.

ok so do you want me to use eyelet or hooks to hang the monthly chains? Myself I would want hooks cause it would be easier to take down to add people (specially since my darling children are not done makin me a granny grrrrrrrrrrr) lol

Also do you want extra chips or just tell you the colors I use to paint? (I use the acrylic paints at M's)

Also do you want a ribbon to hang it by or do you want to use the sawtooth hangers it already has in the back? (I prefer saw tooth hangers if you have them if not do not worry I have some to put on it when I get it)
