I made this December 2016 CD calendar page for my swap partner Mary.
I did it...all 12-months!!!
For this last calendar CD page, I recycled/upcyled one of my extra Christmas cards. Actually this card was one of my very first Christmas card sets I made when I first started stamping and card making.
**I have decided that this coming year, I will not be participating in card/stamping swaps. If I do, they will have to be super special swaps where I know the participants take pride and put effort into their work; or I plan on making the project for myself.
I am not one to complain or be negative. I tend to be a very positive person, and always try to give the other person the "benefit of the doubt" (not making excuses for them). Unfortunately I have come to learn that by not speaking up, I only perpetuate for these individuals not to put their best work forward, and to continue to participate in swaps.**
My idea of Christmas
or modern, is very
simple: loving others.
