Cookie Sheet Calendar

A couple of months ago somebody posted a calendar made from an old cookie sheet and I was inspired! Here is my version.  I used everything under the sun- numbers off of REA poles, cattle tags, coins, bottle caps, stamps, dice, dominoes, buttons, Rook cards, pieces of an old yard stick, and I think that might be about it.  I keep the extra parts in an old tin with a lid. That way, they stick to the bottom and are easy to find.  Thanks for the great idea. 

I'm sorry for the poor quality of the photos. I am having trouble posting photos. I am having to scan the hard copies of the photos in order for them to be the right size. Can someone help me? I'm afraid I'm not very computer savy!

suewhitney writes: Beautiful job on your version of the calendar...I love it! As for downsizing your images you should have a photo shop program on your computer that will allow you to re-size pictures. I believe you can also change the setting on your camera to take smaller photos. Hope this helps!

Take care,
