I love the new year and getting a new calendar, but I'm always so sad to get rid of the old one, especially when the pictures are pretty.
My 2012 wall mini calendar featured a series of vintage french ads, each one more wonderful than the next.
So instead of trashing it, I carefully cut all the pictures out, bought some 8x8 frames 50% off at Michael's, and got to work spending an entire evening (and the better part of the wee hours of that night) cutting out mat board and framing them.
The calendar included thirteen pictures, just the right number to line the still-black walls of our entrance and long hallways.
Yay new art!
