And Now For a Riddle

Question: What takes two bottles of glue?

222 clear hole reinforcers?

150 sheets of cardstock?

75 sheets of patterned paper?

6 binder rings?

2 refills on the distressing ink?

2 months and a stack that looks like this? And yes, the catastrophe in the background is my desk.

The Answer: Three of these guys:
Hallelujah! The calendars are done! I swear these things are kinda like being pregnant. You seem to forget how hard it is until you can't go back. You only remember the joy. And this year was one setback after another. They have never been late before. In fact, I hate late. Late makes me crazy. That explains why I am doing the happy dance now that I am on my way to deliver these little gems to their rightful owners. Now I can see if I can find my desk underneath all of the glue dots, tools, paper scraps, etc. And speaking of paper scraps, since these are 8x8 and paper is 12x12, I am going to have to work on a TON of cards to use up all of these scraps. I have 150 4x12 scraps and 150 4x8 scraps. Look forward to lots of small projects from me for a while. My scrap bin is about to explode and Whoa, Nelly...if that happens my family will be buried under all of the debris. A call would have to made to Search and Rescue. Since I have to clean off my desk before I start a new project, (just a little OCD) I have to get it done because I've got some good stuff floating around in my head that I am needing to get started on. Well, off I go to spread some Christmas joy, in January. Merry Christmas Mom and Dad and Grandma and Grandpa! I love you tons!
