More Projects of Joy

Here's a look at another one of my Christmas projects. I made a calendar for Hunter using photos we took during our various rides & road trips, and it turned out even better than I expected...yay! I usually order my photo calendars from Shutterfly or Kodak Gallery, but this time I tried something new. I typically upload my photos to Flickr, and I happened to check out one of their partner sites: Qoop. They also offer calendar printing services, including a 13.5"x19" poster-sized version which happened to be on sale. It was exactly what I was looking for...a larger calendar, printed on linen paper...and it was the same price as the smaller Shutterfly & Kodak versions. When it arrived, it was beautiful! I absolutely loved it, so I ordered two more: one for my dad and another for my sister-in-law Joannah and her husband. Hopefully they like it as much as we do! :) Here's the photos I used:

Ditto to what Esther said. Those pics are simply beautiful. I also made calendars for Christmas, four of them. But I REALLY like the idea of ordering them instead. Not having to deal with all my scrapbook crap and the mess I create sounds nice.
