Calendar crazy

I love the A Muse calendars and this year the proceeds are going to another fabulous cause, Charley's Fund.

"Charley Beers was the daughter of a longtime A Muse fan, Amanda Beers. Charley died from an aggressive form of Strep A at the end of June. She was only 6 years old. To honor her memory, the Beers family has established "Charley's Fund" which will provide playground equipment and more at her elementary school in Olympia, WA. Please visit this Facebook group to see photos and learn more about this darling little girl."

Sniffle, sniffle... hope you are able to download a calendar (or two) and donate to this fabulous cause.

Here's my A2 which is also featured on the A Muse News, along with calendars from Julie and Lexi. I am addicted to the A Muse calendars and make a few different sizes every year. In particular, I love using the A2 calendar for my day timer at home. This sits beside my phone and I use it for a birthday and appointment calendar. I don't have a binding machine so simply punched holes, put some rings through and tied on some ribbon. It works really well. Also, the 'tiny' A Muse stamps are perfect to mark birthdays and holidays on these calendars.

I love the rounded corners but I can tell you after doing this project there was a lot of paper flying all over my craft room and a lotta' lotta' of these under my craft table (in fact, they are still there, I haven't vacuumed yet!). They have been tracked all over the house too... much to my hubby's chagrin!

I was feeling ambitious so I also did a mini one. All of the A Muse papers were cut from scraps - love that. So flippin' cute...this will hang on a hook in my craft room.

A quick note - the A Muse Calendars are a download product only. Nothing will be shipped to you. Calendar orders are only processed during regular business hours {Monday to Friday 8a to 5p}. Once your order has been processed, you will have unlimited access to the file(s) you have purchased.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to click over to A Muse and download yourself a calendar!
