Perpetual Calendar with Mice

Hi every one,  What have we here?

A calendar that will not need replacing year after year.
It features twelve little mice in a variety of poses - a different one for each month.
The full story can be seen over on the Tutorial blog.of Rick St Dennis' EDT.  I hope you can take the time and visit.
I have used many old items from my hoarded stash. The base box is an empty laundry soap box - cut to size. The DCWV paper on the box - well that's at least 2 years old. The mount board to make the card inserts - that was a big box gifted to me about 3 years ago. Then there's the cotton lace.... I hate to think how long I've had that. The embellishments on each month card - nearly all from that buried box of stuff that "I'll never use that, but keep it just in case". Haven't we all got one of them?
Here's a little teaser of the months. Now you know you'll have to check out the rest.

The Mice used in the calendar are now available as a set with a special price 25.00 USD, only available for a limited time here.  Then they will be on sale in Rick's Zibbet shop at the normal price.

Regular price $36.00 or $3.00 each. The special saves $11.00
