here are some suggestions for the crafty peeps around you that can’t get enough of making things!

Calendar Happy 2009!

Hello everyone!!

I’ll take a little time to wish you all a Happy New Year and thank you all for being such faithful readers and great commenters! I adore reading all your fab comments on all my posts!

For those who would like to receive Creativadoration directly into their email each day (that is, if I post each day!), you can just come on to the homepage and you’ll find a link saying “Subscribe to Creativadoration by Email” on the top right! :)


And now, what could be more perfect than a handmade 2009 calendar selection! Just click on the pictures to be taken there!

I was actually looking for a wall calendar that I would have space to write small things on, not too big, not too small, but the selection for those that I liked were quite rare. (For next year, get on it, calendar designer peeps! hehe)

I finally bought the printable PDF calendar you can see above, by Bluetricycle! I doubt I’ll be able to write much since it’s 4.25in large, but it was just too cute to pass up! :)

Hope you’ll continue to enjoy my blog in 2009! I promise to keep bringing you a lot of handmade goodness! :)
