Happy Tuesday!

Vintage Circus matchbox Perpetual Calendar

Hello and how are you doing today? I spent some time today shampooing the remaining carpet in our home. We have ripped out 80% of it and are saving for some kind of new flooring. I wanted stained concrete but my husband will have to do the job and it's a back breaker from what he tells me! Oh well.
I celebrated my "4o ish" birthday on February 8th. It is so hard to believe that I will be 50 next year. I have the heart of a young child and the body of a broken down little red wagon. Oh well again!
I went to Mystic Paper last week and purchased the new line of Graphic 45 paper (Circus theme). I made a matchbox calendar out of it using all of the fun vintage circus cake toppers and other unique stuff that I had forgotten about.

My next calendar will be made using the new Graphic 45 "Curtain Call". I have attached a photo of the "Vintage Circus" calendar that I finished yesterday.

New item for sale!

Vintage Crystal Prisms Magnets
I found a bag of crystal chandelier teardrops at a recent Estate Sale. I brought them home and said to myself what can I make out of these? For several years I have been asked if I just sell magnets so I decided to try to make something unique, elegant and functional for any magnetic surface. I added a final touch by soldering them at the top and bottom.
I knew that the soldering glass I took a couple years ago would pay off.
Please let me know what you think! The next class that I take will have to be Photography 101.
