Michele's Craft Room 1st Blogaversary Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my blog and Michele's Craft Room 1st Blogaversary Blog Hop!



We are here today to celebrate Michele from Michele's Craft Room being in bloggyland for a year now!  WOOT WOOT!  Congrats Michele, many more years to come!

If you are just coming from Michele's Blog, you are right on track.  If you just came across my blog, you will want to start at the beginning here!  You don't want to miss a thing.

It's exciting that Michele's theme is....well, there is no theme we were given creative freedom to create whatever we wanted which doesn't come up very often :)

I decided that with the new year coming up I would create a coaster calendar for myself.  I normally don't create things for myself but wanted to make it special for me.  I love mermaids, don't get to create with them normally so I was excited on how this turned out!


Recipe:
Papers are from my stash, Simple Stories Snap Color Vibe
Jaded Blossom-Numbers Candies, Flag Dies and Mini Calendar Kit
Orangesicle twine from Trendy Twine
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick
Stampin Up Classic Ink in Pear Pizazz, So Saffron, Early Espresso, Tempting Turquoise and Crumb Cake
VersaFine in Onyx Black






Michele has an awesome giveaway with this blog hop....

I love the 2013 banner and the mermaid is cute as can be! How DID you get that little bitty twine bow so perfect? Love this calendar idea!

Ellen Jarvis said...

This is extra-sweet, Ashley, especially knowing that it's for YOU! You're right -- we usually don't get the opportunity to make things just for keeping. How fun!

It's always nice hopping with you, and I hope to do more of it in 2013!


Fondly,

Okay, Ashley...why do you call it a coaster calendar? Is it because of the size? Maybe i'll head down and make me one too...yours is so sweet. Thanks for sharing.
