Flip Calendar

Happy Holidays!  I'm sitting here on what is now officially Christmas, wishing I was at home in my nice warm bed.  Instead, I am working the night shift at my real job.  As much as I dislike being here right now, I know that it cannot compare to how much the parents of my patients dislike being here today.  So to help keep my Christmas spirits up, I will share with you this very cute calendar.  I was inspired by Rebecca at Better Life Bags.  She created these photo flip books as a flip book of prayer for her husband.  I thought it would look great as a desktop calendar.  This is the one I created as a Christmas present for my mom.  The calendar itself is a print & cut from Silhouette.  Each photo sleeve holds a 4 x 6 photo.  I made one for my sister to use as a photo album.  Isn't it super cute?  And the best part of all was that is was super easy to make!

One of our family traditions is to have cinnamon rolls for Christmas breakfast.  Since we are attempting to save money this year and pay off our debts, I decided to make them this year (normally we get Cinnabon, yummy).  This is batch number two.  They don't look too bad, huh?  I don't think my house is warm enough for making bread though.  I couldn't get my dough to rise well.  Oh well, I slather on enough cream cheese frosting to cover up any lack of taste.  I guess I better practice my cinnamon rolls before next Christmas morning.  Anyone have a good recipe for making cinnamon rolls in a bread machine?

Well,  I better get back to work before the boss notices.  I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and may we all have a prosperous and healthy New Year.  Please stop back soon!  I'll be displaying my cash envelope system for my wallet soon!  Good night to the blogosphere!

  8. HI! I want to make the flip calendar but cant find the calendar pages to print out. Would you be willing to send them to me? I dont have the Silhouette machine, could I just print them on card stock?
    Just signed up for your feed. Thank you! Kim

  9. Kim, I'll see what I can do. When the Silhouette company changed their software they changed the formatting of their images. I'll see if I can find out some way to get them to you!


I love comments!!
