Jan paper pumpkin

I have made up the January Paper Pumpkin kit so Eric can take a bunch to work. I did up a second set so we have some to hand out too.

2019 Paper Pumpkin Calendar

Paper Pumpkin December 2018

I got my December Paper Pumpkin yesterday and I was not a big fan of what it was intended for. Hey I will admit it, I don't always like the monthly kits, but you can always do your own thing with them and make them yours.  That is what is fun, there are no mistakes in stamping, only design changes.

So this is what I did with mine.  I had a picture frame from IKEA and these rings in my studio (it's amazing what I find stashed here and there) and I just made it a flip calendar. I used the little wood grain look chipboard piece that came with it so that it keeps the months from going into the hole of the frame. These originally had some plastic in them but I chucked those long ago.

Here you can see that little chipboard piece better.  Now keep in mind it is an 18 month calendar, so I did need to use my calendar on my phone to get my months in the right order.  I just used the beautiful ribbon that came with the kit and tied it on the bottom of the frame. I wanted to add more ribbon to the rings, but that would make them not work well to flip the calendar each less is more right? 

What do you think?  Don't miss out on January's kit. Who knows what it will be, but I think it has something to do with Kangaroos and Sloths..maybe even a Lizard....hmmmm.....

Can you believe that it is the last weekend before Christmas? Yikes! I hope you have all your shopping done.  I sure don't want to be out shopping this weekend.  I got cards to make...yep looks like I am sending New Years cards this year.  It's like the cobbler's kids had no shoes right? I should have been doing my Christmas cards each month when you were getting the Christmas card class in the mail...then I would have them in the mail already. Next year right?

Spooky Paper Pumpkin Goodies

Paper Pumpkin Sept 2018 -

I finally got around to getting some candies for my fun September Paper Pumpkin goodie bags.  I am back on my Fast Metabolism Diet so no candy for me.  But I am down 5 pounds! Yay!!!  The guys will enjoy the whole bag of candy corn flavored M&M's that must have been tossed around the store. They were all chipped and horrible, no way was I putting them in the bag...and I was not picking the good ones out either.

Don't forget to get your Paper Pumpkin subscriptions, they make great gifts too.

 I am so glad that Last Man Standing is back on TV, I totally loved the first episode how they made fun of moving to a new network, having a new actress play one of the daughters, it was so neat to see everyone. Do you watch it? We also watched Cool Kids that came on after, with Vicki Lawrence from the Carol Burnett show, plus some other fun characters from old favorites like Martin Mull, David Alan Grier (who I hardly recognized with gray hair) and the hilarious Leslie Jordan. It was pretty funny too. Will be interesting to see if they have cameos from famous people on it. They did have Jamie Farr on there from MASH.

I have my last round of Fall Social in the morning, can't wait to see everyone.

Have an awesome Saturday, thanks for stopping in.
