i made a calendar for next year! it took way too long to make (something like five hours) but i think that's partly because i was just winging it. if i make another it shouldn't take as long. D got me the lovely Italian paper the squirrel is cut out of, and this morning i was looking at wall calendars on etsy, and thought, "oh, i should try to make one." in supplies it cost less (i had everything but the rubber cement), but in time it cost more, that's for sure. i didn't make too giant a mess either, which makes me happy. in the end, i think it turned out cute.
