Desk Top Calendar

Sorry I haven't been about all week - been in my bed - so sick and tired of feeling sick and tired!
Roll on when my health picks up...which won't be yet am afraid. My pre-op appointment as now been cancelled on the 6th Dec. There is apparently a big waiting list ( my doctor said there wasn't ) for the surgery, so I won't be getting it done until later next year. I'm not happy, so I'm making an appointment to see my doctor today and hopefully he'll be able to do something for me. I have lost almost a stone in weight - so can't afford to loose more. I only eat one meal a day and that's when I sit with my family at tea time. I avoid food to avoid the pains. This year as just been awful for me - one thing after the other, so hopefully the New Year will bring new and better things for me.
So on to my creation - don't want to bore you with my problems.


These acrylic frames I have had for years - so can't remember where I purchased them from. 
I know at the time they were very I bought 10 landscape and 10 portrait. 
I used 6 last year for the table planners at my friends wedding.
So with whats left I thought Id make some desk calendars for friends.

FIRST EDITION PAPERS -  Bird Song - lush!
DIE each side of calender - Spellbinders - Shapeabilities - Ironwork Motifs.

Fine glitter added to slippers.

    Would liquid nutrition help? Maybe your doctor can prescribe you ensure plus. It is a nutrient drink. Might mean less pain for you? Good luck with the appointment.
