Mini Calendars for the New Year

I kicked 2013 off with sending out some snail mail.  After recuperating from some post holiday sickness I made these little mini January calendars to send to friends.  It was fun to do a little collage work, and I got to use the new slim pastel washi tapes I got for Christmas.  The little floral bits were cut out from the inside of a shopping bag pattern.  I had been hanging on to them all last year, but I never got around to using them.  Still, each time I went to de-stash some of my materials I was never able to throw them away.  You know how it is when you’re waiting for the perfect project to come around?  Most of the time I end up holding on to things forever, but in this case I found the perfect use for them.

This year I will need to let go of lot of little bits like those flowers since my sister and I are re-designing our room.  I was hoping to be able to move my workspace into the basement, but that project may have to hold off for a while.  Now I’m left with the task of trying to balance having my room double as my studio.  I really hope I can be more organized this year and get better at separating work things from the rest of my things.  If anyone has any design tips for having a workspace in your bedroom, please share!

These are really cute - such a great idea! I have to craft in my room too since I am at uni and in a shared house still (snore). I have a vintage suitcase stuffed full of supplies and use the top of it when closed as a sort of craft space. Its not much, but I make do! Plus it keeps me tidy haha! Love your blog :)

Oh, I saw your suitcase on your blog! That's a great idea. When I was in school I crafted right on my floor and always made such a mess. Wish I had thought of that.
