DIY calendar giveaway

My good mate Nelle sent me the link for this the other day, as she knew I’d love the birdies. And I think this one qualifies as “cheater craft” because all I did was print it out, bind it, and put a string on it. It’s designed so that you can rip away each month as it’s finished, I find that rather satisfying! I think there may well be a few of these added to Christmas presents…
Of course, such easy goodness should be shared, so leave a comment and I’ll pick 2 random winners and send you one. {Entries close 11 am, Friday 28th Nov.]
The link for the calendar is here:

    Count me in. Looks great. I should send you the link I found for these amazing PDF calendars that you can buy on Etsy. Similar concept with all sorts of lovely designs. Email me if you want the links.

    Me too! The Chicken pic definately suits you! Thats a great idea for xmas presents. And I count printing and binding as Hard Work!!

    Oh yes, me too!

    Never mind a craft, I think binding is an extreme sport. The punch is downright dangerous and I always muck up something with the binding comb. Degree of difficulty 9.9.

    Fabulous! Love the chook – perfect. I’m not sure the binding would happen over here, things rarely get from the WIP pile to the finished status… (word verification is bulshof – rather close to another kind of BS – may have just invented new swear word!)

    I would love one of those!
    Now that I’m not at work, I don’t have access to a lovely binding machine to make it look pretty..drats!

    PS: I think Bulshof is a great swear word!

    The calender is a lovely. You are very talented.

    I have a bird craze too. I have them everywhere in my house. Although if a real one flew in, I’d probably have a heart attack.
