Days 2 Christmas - 2nd post today



This is a quick and easy project to put together. It only took an hour or so and that was after a false start. I originally saw this calendar on Tara Kenyon's blog
She is one talented lady, be sure to check out her blog. She is having a workshop in November and this is one of the items they will be making. I thought it was a great idea for a door prize at my gathering. I used coasters for this and my false start was to use a wet glue to attach the B&T to the coasters when they bubbled I thought, never mind I will just use my tape gun, then once I had them sanded, made the number tags I had to hunt around for the rings. I guess I need to pick some up at the LSS. The numbers came from a stamp set called Friendship. I can't exactly remember where or when I got it, but I seem to think it was a special, because it is not for sale in the idea book. I decided to add an image to the front cover of the little goody so here it is.
Anyway, once I get everything packed up for my gathering I need to concentrate on a birthday gift for a friend. She is a friend of my sister's whom I met when we moved here. She actually picked out our apartment for us. Her birthday is this month and my sister also has a birthday this month so Marci called to invite me to drive down to Daytona for a birthday lunch. I can save the postage on my sister's gift now. Cool cool, plus I get to see two of my sisters this month.
Thanks for tuning in again.

  8. So, this is just 2 coasters with the 25 number sets inside of them? It doesn't appear that you have 25 coasters on those rings.....just wanted to clarify!

  9. I like what you did Leslie! Thanks for the link to my blog. I only used one coaster and then made an easel back from white CS. Also, I had thought about using the metal rings, but could not find any small enough for me, so I just used twine. Thanks again! Love your work :)
