My, they are all so pretty. I guess if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the November/December one, closely followed by the March/April. You are so lucky to have such a talented sil!

Hi, Kelli.

The calendar is absolutely stunning. I would love to make this.
Could you show how to do each month in your Thursday crafting step by step? I can figure out what some of the items are on each page but not all. Would be nice to have a list of items required to complete each month. Thanks!!!
