Ooh I missed the books earlier ... what an awesome idea!!!!!  I can't wait to see more!

I made books because I think MareMare said something about majoring in literature or something like that.  However, I can't seem to find any evidence of that actually happening.  I wasn't sure how to make them into a calendar until about a week before send out.  I just had a bunch of little book boxes.  That was getting scary. Shocked

Oh!  and the Haiku book is bound backwards all Japanesey!  I was strangely proud of that.

Yes, I have a BA in English Writing and Literature! Cheesy It's perfection! I did used to have it in my "About Me" section but I trimmed that down a while back because it seemed a bit long.

woohoo!  I'm so excited for this! I haven't done any Christmas decorating yet - my daughter's bday is Dec 8, so she's the one who decides when we decorate for the holidays. Still, I can at least put up the calendar when it comes. Smiley

Claiming my gallery spot!
I mailed on saturday, I found the way to deal with not having to wait in the crazy hour long queue in the post office is to huff and puff and be all dramatic taping your box up, and they whisk you away to a side counter to pay to mail your box without waiting in the usual line!!

ohhh the calender from Tree27 is pretty and the bottle calendar is so clever. I cannot wait to see what all of the neat calendar ideas everyone comes up with!

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.
