Card-a-Copia: Calendar Pages and a Baby Card

 I realize I say the same thing every time I post after an extended absence, but my life is out of control!  I have had little to no interest in crafting and am plumb worn out after I get home from work.   And then it's more work with the dogs.  Calgon, take me away!

I am facilitating an acrylic calendar class next month.  My first few images are the pages of the calendar.  (Sorry about March...I didn't have much "luck" with the photo!)

I made the calendar pages and used all kinds of stuff from my stash.  (I'll mark things I can remember or still have identifiers for and update when I realize another thing I used!)
