OMG I'm back

Where have I been? I have been crafting honest, but life has also been heaily in the way most of the time for me to get here. Anyway I was meant to be putting more of my USA holiday 1989 LO photos on here and I haven't got round to it ...... so far. I will do one day. but for now here is a calendar I've made for my outlaws for Christmas.
I set the members challenge on the Charmed Forum this time.
The first is to make a desk calendar. Can be any size (depending on your desk), with or without photos if a larger one and I would like you to add the following: Punched or die cut shapes, ie flowers, tags, frames ...... Blingy things ie dew drops, glitter, s/a pearls, gems ....... Sewing ..... or doodling
The second is to make a crafty Christmas present for somebody. This could be anything, like covering and decorating a notebook to personalise it, making a post it notes decorated holder thingy (technical term there ), make an address book, make a shopping list holder for a pad (to go on the fridge maybe), decorate a phone note pad holder, make and decorate a photo frame or ........ anything else you can think of. Use whatever form of embellishments are suitable for your chosen gift idea but include some ribbon, and chipboard somewhere and somehow.
Here is the front cover of my desk calendar.
All the papers are K & co. Flowers are die cut Wild Raspberry from K & Co and the felt embellies are Fancy Pants.
