Year of the Dragon Calendars

While in the midst of all the craziness and stress of getting stuff ready for dd's wedding last month, I received some happy mail from my dear friend Gene...these two beautiful Year of the Dragon calendars! These could not have come at a better time...I was starting to feel a bit overwhelmed with what seemed like an endless number of wedding projects, and finding Gene's calendars in the mail really brightened my day and brought a smile to my heart!
Just LOVE this octagonal easel calendar which now sits on my computer desk...all the gold leafing details, pretty sakura blossoms...and the stamped and embossed dragon medallion she used as the stop on this looks almost like real metal!
...And this larger calendar magnet Gene sent now adorns my 'frig! Just can't get over how amazing and intricate this Cheery Lynn Designs dragon die is! Also love how she used the Sizzix Architectural Accents corner dies to create the frame for the, super creative!
One more dragon year calendar I received that I want to share...this adorable mini calendar was created by a sweet friend, Darcie who also spent time to give me a much needed mini lesson on Copic coloring techniques...thank you, Darcie!
I just love my new calendars! I've always thought they make such great useful gifts, but just never have the time to make them. I'm so lucky to have such talented and thoughtful friends....thank you ever so much, Gene and Darcie!
