Good evening fellow bloggers/blog readers.
I have been known to share my love of Ben & Jerry's and the famous Cookie dough ice-cream which I find truly yummy but today I may just have stumbled across the best ice-cream I have ever tasted!!!!
Steve's mum makes fantabulous ice-cream with her ice-cream maker and recently brought a newer and bigger version of this marvelous contraption......Guess who got the old one!
I am a little ashamed to say that I have had it well over a month now without using it *it was a busy month though in my defense!*
I Steve randomly decided it was time to make ice-cream! Luckily I had all of the ingredients to make his favourite - Chocolate, my choice of chocolate though apparently wasn't good enough for ice-cream (regular cooking chocolate) so he rushed out to find some Galaxy!
.........A couple of hours later and we were spooning large quantities of Galaxy ice-cream into Chinese take-away containers and putting them into the freezer and after dinner we indulged in our first bowlful........... pure heaven. What a good idea Galaxy was! I have decided to take on the roll of Mrs BenJerry and I am concocting flavours in my head as we speak! *Waving goodbye to my slim jeans*
Enough ice-cream talk! It's .....
I finished my 2011 calendar last night and it is hanging on the wall ready for the years events to be
thrown at scribbled on written on it!
I have made my own calendar now for 4 years which has gone tremendously fast! I was first inspired by Shimelle to scrap monthly pages when I saw a layout in Scrapbook inspirations. Shimelle designed a layout about the month of May (back in 2007) I don't really remember many details about it other than it inspired me to do the same and so I set about creating layouts that resembled calendar pages. I started with May 2007 and scraped each month after it had happened through to December 2007.... then it suddenly struck me that if I made my own calendar for the year I could just add the events to it like in my diary but I could keep it in an album as it is something pretty to look at!
Well year after year it evolved and I still keep them all together, I never did put them into an album because that would mean pulling them apart! Instead they live in the cupboard and I look at them from time to time to see what we were doing in August 2009 or whenever!
I didn't own a blog at the time so 2008's calendar never made it to the World Wide Web, but here it is:
My how my scrapping style has changed! I will share it one of these days so that everyone can see the difference!
In 2009 I upgraded from ribbon to a bind-it-all but I obviously didn't know how to use it!
All of 2009 calendar pages can be found here:
......and last year? I worked out the bind-it-all and even had the official calendar hanger on it but forgot to make a hole in the top of each page so that you can turn the pages easily!
All of 2010's calendar pages can be found here:
