*COMPLETE* 6 x 6 2014 Calendars - Great Gift! - Due November 24
For the last three years I have been making 6 x 6 calendars as a holiday gift for my Mom. She is now 86. Never did I think after receiving the first one she would request one each year. I vow never to leave these to the last second, but I do. I thought, just maybe, others need a great gift idea. This year she will get her calendar, but I thought it would be a great Secret Santa gift for my dh's employee exchange.

  • 6 x 6 2014 Calendar
  • Sign-ups: Open until a full year has filled
  • Due Date: November 24 is the absolute deadline. IF you need to drop out of this swap, please, please, please PM me as early as possible. I would rather hear something from you than nothing. I will swap them out and they will go postal the next Saturday. (FYI -Saturday is the only day I can send out as I am home bound and dh does the postal run. His availability is Saturday only.)
  • Quantity: 12 + 1 swap. You will get back one of your own.
  • Use at least two layers of good quality card stock.
  • No vendor requirements.
  • Embellishments - minimum of 1
  • Stamp and color, paper piece, etc top header with image appropriate for the month.
  • Print calendars on a good quality white or vanilla card stock.
  • Calendar size should be of a good size print and cover no more than
Size: 6 x 6
Taylored Expressions is where I have downloaded calendars in the past and I use their 6 x 6 protectors, and Frame Your Imagination vertical stand. I have no association with Taylored Expressions, only sharing with you what I use. There are numerous ways to bind and display. You could also do a Google Search for 2014 calendars and print your own chosen month. Check the links to my blog (below) to see approximately the size your calendar should be on your 6 x 6 base.Please do not sign up if you are not serious about participating. Others are counting on receiving a full calendar to give as gifts.

  • Be sure you signed your calendars on the back of each one.
  • Place your calendars in ziploc baggie to protect them against the weather. My mailman often leads packages on my doorstep and it is unprotected from bad weather. Be sure to include in your baggie your SCS and real name.
  • Post on the thread when you have mailed and again after I swap out all tags when your receive.
  • I will order from the PO the bubble Priority envelopes for return of your calendar. Do not send postage or metered mail. Send $5.95 for return postage, cash only, no checks. If you want to send via PayPal, PM me for my PP addy.
  • When you are ready to mail, PM me for my address. If you are outside the US, be sure to allow for mailing so I receive your items by November 1.
WHEW.... I think that is about it. Let me know if you have any questions and stop in now and then to say Hi.

Joan7356 09-02-2013 09:11 AM

Ladies.... I have changed the due date to November 24. Some have expressed that November 1 is too early. I moved the date back by a few weeks as I want these postal to you at the latest Thanksgiving weekend. I hope the later date agrees with you all.

1855ward 09-02-2013 09:41 AM

Good morning....what a beautiful day out today. I'm headed into town in a little while to do some shopping then back to do some stamping. Have a great day.

Good morning friends....it was great to wake up to 64 this am, up to 83 today but no humidity....I'm wondering how much mail is going to be at the office this am as after a holiday usually a lot. Have a great week ladies

Sassy, I don't see the links to your examples. Can you tell me where to find them. I'm thinking I want to participate, but since I've never done this before, I'd like to see a sample before I commit. Thanks!

Lazorkay 09-04-2013 05:32 AM

Lazorkay 09-04-2013 05:33 AM

Lazorkay 09-04-2013 05:36 AM

Speaking of your blog Joan - LOVE the canvas!

Wild Sprinkles

A Blog Called Wanda

From the TE Gallery:




There's a few. Again, I am not associated with TE but if you go to their blog you will get lots of ideas. I also do a smaller size calendar using their calendar, too. The calendars I put in the 6 x 6 protectors and I use the calendar holder pictured in the links above.

Hope this helps!

Lazorkay 09-04-2013 09:48 AM

Forest Ranger 09-05-2013 05:24 AM

Good Morning Friends!


... ... ... ...

Today is Jury Rights Day,
National Cheese Pizza Day,
and Be Late for Something Day.

Enjoy your holiday(s) of choice today!

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
reminding us to Beware of CHICKENS!

The manager of a grocery store took a rotisserie chicken to the face while chasing a theft suspect. The alleged thief ran out of the store after grabbing a rotisserie chicken and a four-pack of booze, but the manager followed him.

The chicken thief confronted the manager, telling him he would beat him up if he kept following him and then took off his belt and swung it around near the manager.

The manager just kept following him, so the thief chucked the chicken right at the manager's face. He then tried to run to a nearby gas station, but he ran into police officers there and was arrested.

:shock: :roll: :mrgreen: :lol: ;)
