it's that time of year again! time for a muse's annual calendar benefiting an amazing cause! this year, the calendar benefits water 1st.
The proceeds from the sale of this year's calendar will be donated to Water 1st. Water 1st's mission is to serve families in the poorest communities in the world as they implement community-managed projects that integrate water supply, sanitation, and health education.
for my calendar, i decided to make a clear album to house the pages. i created my own acrylic pages by using sheets of styrene blanks, found at michael's in the glass etching section. i cut them down to 6x6, and i used my bind it all to punch holes in them, then used a muse ribbon to tie it together. i really like how this album is sturdy and can stand up by itself. i decided to add pictures with my calendar, so here is the month of june, along with a picture of my mom and my daughter. these calendars combined with pictures make a great gift for family!! :) i also made the october and november pages but didn't add pictures yet. i think this album makes a really fun gift without pictures too! :) the a muse calendars come in lots of great sizes, and i used the square one for this project. be sure to check out the a muse news blog for lots of fun ideas with these awesome calendars! also, click here and here to see the projects i made with last year's calendar. click on the pictures below to see them larger. go get your calendars here!! :) thanks for visiting! :)
