A Muse 2010-2011 Calendar preview

For the last few years, A Muse has sold a calendar for digital download the profits of which have gone to various charities. The proceeds from this year's calendar will benefit Charley's Fund. Charley Beers was the daughter of a longtime A Muse fan, Amanda Beers. Charley died from an agressive form of Strep A at the end of June. She was only 6 years old. To honor her memory, the Beers family has established "Charley's Fund" which will provide playground equipment and more at her elementary school in Olympia, WA.

This year, Linda has created five different sizes of calendars. It is great to be able to make small gifts for others or a larger size for your personal use. I decided to use the mini sized calendar (it all prints on one page) to make mini keepsake for next year.



I printed it out twice so that I could punch out the calendars with a 2.25" circle punch.



I stamped each one using only the "tiny" stamps that A Muse makes.



My goal is to take a group photo of my kids once a month, print it and add it to the mini book.



This was from this year, but I wanted to show you what I plan on doing. It will be a really informal look at our year, just our everyday life! I am looking forward to putting it together as the year goes by. Hopefully I will remember to share each month with you all.




Check the AMN blog for links to other ideas today and for the next few days.
