  1. New Year’s Resolutions……hmmm…..not good with them. Usually it is for me to lose weight, but since I am currently 5 1/2 months preggo, I guess it won’t be that for a while. Maybe just not to gain too much weight since I already feel like a hippo! 😉
    BTW, cute calendar!

    1. I love that you have so many great ideas! I can’t thank you enough for sharing your creativity and the note pad and calendar ideas are fantastic.

      Thank you,
      Tammy (grmmat)

  2. I was given one of these already made up as a gift and boy do I love it. My new years resolution is to start using some of my craft things I have bought and never used. I will try my best to keep it. Have a great week-end. Hugs n’ Stuff, Lynne

  3. Uhummmm,
    This is really what I need to medications monitoring and doctor’s appointments of my treatment. Also for my mother, just wonderfull.

  4. My new year’s resolution is to keep fit and healthy. The last few years have been about my kids. I gave birth to my third one just this April. But now I’m all done with having kids, so it’s time to focus on myself. I started running in the summer but I got injured, so I’ve been off my treadmill for a while. As soon as the new year starts, I’m going back on an exercise regimen and sticking with it. My goal is to fit into my bikini for the summer!

  5. No resolutions for me…too easy to break them. I’ve tried in the past, this year’s was staying away from the computer/facebook and craft/cross stitch more but that didn’t happen.

  6. New Year’s Resolutions. I try every year….this year my goal is to make my SU business more productive. I would like to set aside time every day to create. Hopefully I can make it happen! Love this blog and all the great ideas really inspire me!

  7. I make a point to not make ‘resolutions’ as such, because I always feel terrible when I break them (and I always break them!). However, I plan to spend more time on myself – with two young kids and one ‘big kid’, aka Husband, I rarely spend time doing what I want to do! I also want to build my craft business, I enjoy doing kid’s birthday parties so I’d like to grow on that!

  8. I havent given much thought to that. Probably to play with my kids more, boy they better be getting some good toys from Santa then! Lol

  9. My New Years Resolution is to craft more with my friends and to learn new techniques! Which is why I am hoping you will be having Club 52 again or maybe I can join anytime. Of course I always include my health and that of my family but that is not really a resolution as a lifestyle to maintain.

    I adore this project and so wish I had time to order these for Christmas Gifts – but maybe next year or for RAK gifts for this year!

    Fantastic ideas and I am loving your site!

    Merry Christmas and I hope you enjoy time with your family and friends this season


  10. I usually don’t make them, but this year, I am. My resolution is to build my card making business; the goal is to not only support my habit, but to pay ALL utility bills.

  11. I don’t do a “New Year” resolution. At my age, every morning that I wake up I set a resolution!! And “no” this is not like a “to do” list. My resolutions have more to do with strengthing my faith and trying to be a better person. I am completely past the age to give up chocolate — LOL. Now, I haven’t said this before, but I truly would love to win these tins and calendars — thanks for the chance Andrea!!

  12. No New Year’s resolutions for me. Just seems like people never actually follow through with them.

  13. I absolutely love the calendars in a tin. I looked into buying some, but the postage to the States is high (I know not your fault) :>) My resolution is to get in shape. In the past 2 years I’ve had two knee replacements and back problems and am now on the road to feeling better where I can exercise. Need to get some lbs. off to go with my new knees.

  14. I try to resolve every day to be happy and to do my best to make others happy. The last month has been especially difficult – so I amy resolving it several times a day 🙂 January 1st – the beginning of the new year – is a great time to start the year with a clean slate! Thanks for your great projects!

  15. My New Year’s Resolution is to catch up on my kids scrapbooks. Its been way to long since I have touched them 🙁 By the way, I love your blog and all the great ideas!

  16. OMG those little pencils are so cute.
    No resolutions for me; just things I’d “like to work on.”
    Thanks for sharing all of your fantastic projects.

  17. I am going to make time to craft everyday! I’m going to try to lose weight. I love all the stuff you make and the ideas you give me.

  18. My resolution is to set up my new stamping space and donate supplies I have accumulated to others so that they can be used, rather than collected!

  19. I love these tins and calendars. They would make great gifts.

    I typically don’t make resolutions. Thanks for sharing all your ideas. Happy holidays and happy new year!

  20. Resolution for this next year is to do a better job of keeping cards done ahead of time, so I am not frantically making cards at the last minute for a birthday, wedding, etc. Would love to have some cute little sets like these to craft for friends as a little surprise when we meet for lunch!

  21. Nope never make one anymore. I have tried in the past and always failed. I am new to this blog and I look forward to seeing each of your projects.

  22. I always have good intentions for keeping. New Year resolutions but come middle of Januray all resolutions usually get taken over by Life in general. This year will be checking your site for all your awesome inspirations. Thank you for sharing. Happy Holidays to you and yours!!!

  23. My new years resolution is to quit smoking and diet- AT THE SAME TIME!! Really going to stick to it too — i hope!! Just gotta keep focused and stay strong!! Have a happy holiday!

  24. No resolutions, I gave those up years ago and just strive to do my best in whatever I decide. I abolutely love these calendars and would love to make them!

  25. I love these!!!! I usually break all my resolutions but not this year! I received a kidney transplant on 11-11-11 and my resolution is to stay as healthy as I can and protect my new gift!!! And to be thankful to my donor’s family every day!!!

  26. Mmmm…New Year’s resolutions are a tough one but one area I would like to improve is my time management with crafting. I spend too much time looking on the internet and not enough time crafting! I am going to get a timer and allow myself a certain amount of time to admire other people creativity and then use the rest of my time to be creative! Thanks for all your inspiration!

  27. My New Years Resolution is to eat healthier and keep the weight off that I lost recently. I love your blog and all the inspiration you give.

  28. My New Year’s Resolution is to get rid of a LOT of clutter here in the house.

    Love your Blog Andrea. I have purchased the supplies to make the tins with the calendars — they are so beautiful. I am just about at the stage that I need to order more!!!

    Great job!!!! Looking forward to seeing what you have in store in the New Year.

    Merry Christmas.

  29. I will be focusing on regular aerobic activity as well as eating healthier….motivation is my sons wedding in Aug. Thanks for all you do and for the great prizes!!

  30. I usually don’t make resolutions, but I would love to get my stamp room cleaned & organized!!

  31. I’m resolving to manage my time better…between working, my family, my church, my crafting..oh and sleeping! Love your projects and enjoy seeing what you come up with! Thank you for sharing your talents with all of us 🙂

  32. My only resolution for 2012 is to get on a exercise/walking program.
    Love your blog and the inspiration. Merry Christmas to you and your Family!!!!

  33. I am one of those people that do not set New Years resolutions. I am not good at sticking with long term goals. If it is something that needs to be done, I will try at any point throughout the year.

  34. My New Year’s Resolution is to set goals and meet them. I mean, this time actually set a timeline for the goals and attain them. First, I want to spend more time studying God’s Word and I know this will make the rest of the resolutions easier to accomplish. I’m actually excited about seeing what is going to happen. And of course, I will be making plenty of time to stamp. Hope I win, would love to make the calendar!

  35. My goal is to scrapbook more! With actual pics! LOL I want to finish one 2-page 12×12 layout per week. Already talked to the hubs about giving me that time every Sunday evening so that I can work!

  36. I do not set resolutions because I never follow through with them BUT I have to admit that this past year I finally fulfilled a resolution that I had said many times before stopping trying and that was to QUIT SMOKING!! It has been 9 months and it is the best thing I ever did!! Never say never!!

  37. My goal is to nurse my hiubby back to strength after a very major surgery and of course do as much crafting as I can manage between times. Thank you for the inspiration your site gives me.

  38. My #1 resolution (every year) is to get organized. I never seem to get it right. I will still resolve to work on it every year. Love your inspirations on your site. Keeps me trying to do better.

  39. I usually don’t set New Years resolutions but this coming year I really want to make an effort to make some sort of project once a week.

  40. Love your website and tutorials. Your website is an inspiration and anytime I cannot get my creative juices going I simply look at your website for ideas and inspiration. Thanks.

  41. My New Year’s resolution for 2012 is to sell my creations through my Esty store. I love making cards, quilted items, albums, etc. I’ve always been very creative and I love sharing that with others as well as giving my creations to people to make them smile. I really enjoy your art and it gives me inspiration, Thank you!

  42. My resolution will be a bit different this year. I’m not going to say- Exercise, lose weight, etc. Instead my plan is to get healthy and spend more time with my family.

  43. Last year’s was to never buy a card for 365 days and I’ve done that so far, including Christmas cards. Mine for 2012 is to do a better job of planning so I have some time to allow my creative juices to flow so I have more fun with them! Love you for helping me with ideas when I have time or need to punch one out!!!

  44. I usually try and not make any resolutions but I am definitely making one this year and I plan on sticking with it—-MORE crafting time, MORE scrapbooking time, MORE card making, MORE fun times!!! Thanks for a chance at these wonderful tins! I usually make calendars for all my family but I haven’t got them done yet and these would REALLY come in handy!

  45. I am not very successful at reaching my New Year resolutions, so this year I am not going to make one. I would love to wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe 2012. (grin)
    I adore your blog and videos! Your videos tutorials are simply the best. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your talents. I look forward to many, many more crafts with you. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from San Diego, CA.

  46. My new resolution for 2012 is to stay positive thru trials and tribulations. Finding time for myself and staying fit. My plans is to do 3 half a marathons and encourage my family to join me this year.

  47. the calender and note pad tin is so cute. it has inspired me to want to make some. Thanks for the great idea.

  48. My resolution for this year will be a first for me!! I am resolving to NOT making a resolution since I always break it before the week is over. LOL I have purchased this bundle before (2 yrs.) and would love to win this year since I didn’t purchase any this winter. Have a Very Special Holiday for all 3 of you ladies. I LOVE your blog and P.C. Library.

  49. I don’t really make resolutions. I try to make every day wonderful for my little girls.

  50. I do have only one resolution this year to create 365 different projects in the year 2012.
    Love the kit for grabs. TFS

  51. Pick me!!! Pick me!!! I would love love love to win the calendar tins and contents. My New Year’s Resolutions typically involve weight loss and getting organized… but neither ever get executed. So, this year my resolution is to not make any resolutions!

  52. Thank you so much for the chance to win! My New Year’s Resolution is to craft more, come out of this horrible depression and love myself more. Thank you for your inspiration keep up the wonderful work.

  53. I would love to win this prize! As for resolutions, I would like to make time for my paper crafting at least once a week, and to try to not let the little stresses of daily life pile up like they always seem to do.

  54. I do not make New Year’s resolutions, but I do set goals. Thank you for the chance to win this wonderful calender kit. I would love to win it! Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

  56. Sorry, no resolutions for me – too much of a downer when I break them! But would love to win the calendar kit :)! Love all your creations! Thanks much for sharing all these wonderful projects! Merry Christmas!

  57. Great project supplies!!! I don’t make new year’s resolutions… it’s always the same… lose weight… then when i don’t do it, i feel like a failure… so i don’t put that pressure on myself. At least I”m only stressed at being overweight instead of failing to keep my resolution too.

  58. No resolutions for me, but I do plan to get my craft room organized after having all of my stuff locked behind a door for years. I just recently started crafting again now that my son with Autism is a little older and is going to school every morning. I love the break and the time to be creative. I’d love to win these calender/note sets to make for gifts for my kids’ teachers.

  59. Oh WOW, Andrea — you just cannot imagine how I would love to win this prize!!! I have been looking for little pencils or pens like this for ages, and cannot seem to find them small enough over here in France. I’d so love to be able to make up little present packages with the tins, notebooks/calendars, and pencils. Have my fingers crossed that this may be my lucky day . . . . . and am going to check them all out straight away on your site.
    Happy Holidays — Sally in France

  60. LOVE to win the calendar set…Great gift for ME and a couple of others…Definitely one of my faves…New Year’s Resolution this year…There was a new idea to pick one or two words to apply to all aspects of your life and I want to choose “Let Go” Let go of the past, of the stress that I create for myself, etc.

  61. My resolution is to be more organized this year so that i can have more time to do what I love–stamping and scrapbooking. I have loved this creation of yours since you first featured it. Today is my birthday and I can’t think of a better present than to win this giveaway. Thank you for the chance.

  62. Your calendar set is so nice. Thanks for reminding me of your store as the location to buy the supplies! As for resolutions… I don’t usually make anything to strict. I do have a scrapping goal for 2012 to complete 100 layouts though!

  63. Of course there are all of the usual resolutions to make, play more with my kids, don’t get angry so easily, volunteer more, go to church more often…….etc. So all of those and a stamping resolution as well. CAS less and create more!

  64. I just love these calendar/note pad tins! My resolution is to keep my stamping room neat (or neater than it is)!

  65. I don’t usually set new years resolutions – but I think in general I have to get more organised in 2012 and stop buying craft stuff and hoarding it – 2012 I am going to use up some of my stash instead!

  66. Wow, the resolutions I have made and broken! This year I want to try to go back to stamps and paper I have purchased and haven’t used. Wow that should cover my resolutions for the next 10 years! I wish I was as created as you gals are. May your business do great in 2012, and thank you for all the great ideas!

  67. No sure I will have new years resolutions (tend to break them fairly quickly) but I do have some short term goals that are in my future – exercise more, organize my craft room (discard those things that I no longer use or need to make room for new toys) and to spend more time with my family. For all these blogs that I follow – may your new year be filled with much business, good friends and a fat bank account. Happy holidays thanks for all the wonderful ideas and classes that you do, they are loved by all.

  68. Hi, thank you for all your wonderful ideas, mine run out so quickly lol, my New Years Resolutions are to finish what I start at the time and dont leave it for another day, and give more generously of time and finished projects to encourage others to join in this wonderful crafting arena. PS also to cut into my delicious papers without sitting on them for a month or two 🙂

  69. My new years resolution has been the same…to scrapbook at least one page a day or even a week and it would be way more than what was done this year! yikes….the kids are growing up too fast! Thank you for keeping me inspired!!!

  70. My New Year’s resolutions are first to get healthier by losing weight and exercising to get more fit in the process. Second resolution is to get myself organized better, including my home, which means weed out and get rid of the unnecessary clutter that has built up over the years.
    Would love, love, love to have a chance at winning the calendar set give-away. They make the cutest gifts!!
    What creative ideas you have!! Thanks for the chance to win.

  71. My resolution is to keep my crafting space neater and more organized. I live in a small apartment and I work on a small table in my living room. I tend to let things spread out and when they do my whole living space looks terrible. Thanks for all the inspiration that keeps me trying new things.

  72. I always set a new years resolution! And it always has to do with my weight, but not this year! yes I’m a little chunky-er than Id like to be.. but I love cupcakes and refuse to do that to myself again, instead, this time my new years resolution is to hit the gym at least twice a week 🙂 I just joined last month and it’s been working out for me! 🙂 Thanks for a chance to win! 🙂

  73. My New years resolution is to be more prepared, and not leave things to the last minute. Thanks again for all your inspiration, I love being part of the paper crafters library. Its truly a one stop inspiritation place for me.

  74. Would love to win the Calendar/Note tins. Just love all your ideas and thanks for sharing. I don’t do resolutions. I try to just take one day at a time and live it to the fullest! Have a beautiful Christmas and a great New Year!

  75. Your ideas are awesome. I love that you have projects ranging from beginners to advanced papercrafters 🙂
    I’d love to win this package.
    I don’t set New Year Resolutions, I have enough trouble sticking to a list, let alone a Resolution…lol
    Have a wonderful Christmas & New Year

  76. great idea to be able to keep your notes and dates without them geting torn up in your purse

  77. My New Year’s Resolution seems to always be to clean up and organize my stamp room…. maybe 2012 will be the year for that! Also to take better care of myself.

  78. Merry Christmas to you and all your helpers. My New Year’s resolution is to do more paper crafting.

  79. I usually do not make resolutions, because I am terrible at keeping them. LOL! Love your projects and your detailed information so we can recreate them for ourselves. Thanks so much!

  80. no new years resolution for me but just go on with what i’m doing. Losing wait and trying to get better. Resolutions specilly made for new year mostly doesn’t stay long. But I love the tins and calender. tahnks for this great ideas

  81. Gosh, is it really time to start thinking of New Years Resolutions? I usually think I will do some but I never follow through. Maybe I will try to make some that are easier to keep!
    I love the calendars and tins. I’ve wanted them for a long time but can’t afford the shipping. Hope I win!

  82. I set a New Year’s resolution, this year I would like to make a bigger effort to stay in touch with my family. I am one of 13 and some times it is difficult to stay in touch with everyone. I want to make a bigger effort. Enjoy the holiday season with your family. Thanks for sharing so many ideas.

  83. Hi there! I love those cute little calendars in their own special tin holder. Where do you come up with all your wonderful designs and ideas??!! You all are amazing for sure!! My resolution this year is to become more healthy and stronger. It is a BIG BIRTHDAY for me on Jan 1st (yes, I was a New Year’s Baby!!) and I realize I need to take better care of myself so I can see many more birthdays to come!! I seem to have lost strength in my arms and hands, so I am going to work on regaining that back. Happy Holidays

  84. i always make a new year’s resolution…but haven’t yet decided for 2012 yet! i try to set a resolution that is manageable…..makes no sense for me to make a resolution that I will break in the first few days of the new year….lol!!!

  85. I just love, love, love this site. Thanks so much for being a part of my life. My New Year’s resolutions are to get more organized and get more of my Christmas gifts completed BEFORE Christmas! Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  88. Wow Andrea, these are awesome! If I don’t win this, I may have to buy some!!!

  89. Oh, these are really cool! I would love the chance to win one. I don’t make any resolutions. I just live for each day.

    I want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and best wishes for a prosperous New Year!!

  90. I’ve never really made a New Year’s Resolution. However, I would really like to get more organized next year. I would also love to find more time to dedicate to doing more crafts. Winning this would be a great way to incorporate both!!

    Happy Holidays!!!!

  91. I do set New Year’s resolutions and this year I am resolving to keep my home office more organized. Thanks for the chance to win and Happy Holidays!

  92. oh my, new year’s resolutions. i haven’t really thought about them yet, but it seems as though every year i try to make some kind of positive change in my life. i know one thing that i would really like to do is be better at being organized. i cannot seem to ever be very good at managing my time well, and i think if i can do that, it would help…a lot!

    i would also like to start some kind of budgeting. it seems like we spend $$ like crazy, and it feels very unsettling to me. i would really like to look at where all our $$ goes and be smart about those decisions. i know that one day i will have to answer to God for how i have handled all His possessions (everything in the heavens and earth belong to Him), and i SO long to hear “well done thou good and faithful servant.” it’s hard and i can’t say i’m really looking forward to going there, but i know it’s what God desires for me and our family. besides, if i don’t get a handle on spending now, that sin will just be passed down to my kids (they see what i’m doing) and i do not want them to have the struggle that i have.

  93. My #1 resolution for 2012 is to focus more on health and fitness…making better food choices and exercising more.
    I love the products you’ve featured! Thank you for the opportunity to win them!

  94. I know I posted a comment on here this weekend, but I am not able to find it now. I guess I got thrown out before I got the chance to win. I really do love your site!! You make the most beautiful things and your instructions are easy to follow. My New’s Years resolution is to get more organized and get my Christmas gifts done BEFORE Christmas. I would love to win one of your great projects!

  95. My resolution for next year is to finish scrapping 2010. I just finished 2009 and it took me 2years. I want to get current so I can scrap as it occurs.
    I hope you pick me to win!

  96. Oh.. I have been eying this set for over a year now and would love to be the winner!! I work a million jobs, wife, mother, scrapbook store part time employee, scentsy director.. its been a challenge managing my day and my goal is to add regular workouts in the mix and to manage my time more effectively!!

  97. Your talent amazes me… would be very nice to win, so i can create these great calendars… thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful ideas over 2011….
    Look out 2012 the ideas are flowing
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

  98. Yes, I do set resolutions and I have many for 2012, the first and foremost being to cut some of the stressful elements out of my life.

    Thank you so much for all your wonderful ideas and inspiration. The papercrafter’s library is fantastic.

    Happy Holidays!!!!

  99. I have always loved this project of yours. It would be a great teacher gift!
    Of course, I say I will make resolutions, then have nothing to do with them, but this past year hubby lost his job, so we have had to make a lot of changes. One of my resolutions is to cut back on spending for non-essentials (particularly in my scrap area). If I don’t have a specific use for it, I won’t buy it!

  100. my new years resolution is to stay focused on the things that really matter in life, a lesson that i was taught these past two years with the life experiences that i went through. i have learned that life could be very short. live life to the fullest and count all your blessings daily!!!!!! Happy New Years to all, may God shower you with many blessings just like he showered me with them………

  101. I love the clever and wonderful things you always make and your videos are so great I really enjoy all of them thanks for sharing your talents with us I would love to win this I have never wond anything like this in any crafting contest I have ever entered so I would love to win
    Merry Christmas to your family

  102. Wow!!! What a great time of the year for the calendars! I have always loved them and am excited about the chance to win the package!!!! I do make New Year’s Resolutions – I spend quite a bit of time trying to reflect on the past year and think about what I would like for the coming year. My #1 resolution this year is to continue to create balance in my life – making sure I have time to create every day!!!!! 🙂 Thanks again for all the inspiration and for the chance to win!!!!

  103. I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions; however given some challenges we faced this year I want to be sure to enjoy every day to it’s fullest and take delight in the little things.

  104. Love the calendars. I bought several of the tins long ago and didn’t know what to do with them until now. Thanks for the plan.

  105. I’ve admired these calendars for quite some time! Very fun! One of my new years resolutions is to spend more quality time with my kiddos in 2012. They are growing up so fast and it’s important to embrace each phase of life they are in. Here is to a great 2012!

  106. WOW, I used to set New Years Resolutions (mostly about losing weight and being better about lkeeping in touch), but could never seem to keep them so I stopped. I do however try to each year I just do not use it as one. That probably did not make any sense. Thanks for the cahnce to win this wonderful set. I love all your videos. Have a wonderful Holiday!

  107. Resolution?? to keep my craft room neater by focusing on one project at a time. I get so excited over every new project that comes along and get half of each done and find I’m drowning in paper, ink, stamps, ribbon, etc.
    I bought several calendar kits and am having a Christmas brunch here this week. After eating (of course) we are all doing the calendar tins. I can’t wait to see the faces of the gals who know I have plans for them, but don’t know what they will be making. I need MORE!!!! Thanks for your good work.

  108. hmmmm…New Years resolution… dedicate an additional 7 hours per week to my business….that is in addition to what I am doing now. I really want to see my business grow in 2012…..wish me luck!

  109. My new years resolution is to stop making new years resolutions! Please enter me in the draw, I would love to use these little goodies for my next project! Thanks

  110. So much fun!!! Woud love to share it with my stampers and now that the instructions are here it will easy for me todo. Thanks for all the sharing and please enter me in the contest. What a nice Christmas Preent that would be. Health and Happiness to your Family

  111. These are the cutest little calendar tins!!! I would LOVE to win some of these to give out to my friends!! My New Year’s Resolution got started early for me. I decided on Oct 22nd (after a Dr’s visit) that I HAD to start getting in shape IMMEDIATELY!! So I did! I guess my New Year’s Resolution is to take the good exercise and eating habits I’ve already started and REALLY kick them into high gear!! I’ve already lost 9 pounds, but I want to lose a total of 20 by Sept 1st….my anniversary with my hubby!!

  112. My #1 resolution for 2012 is to be more organized and plan ahead. (I’ve been practicing!) 🙂

    I’m trying to keep a list of things to do and cross them off as I accomplish them. (Hmmm…a calendar would surely help me with my resolution! ) 😉 I’m hoping that by being more organized, this will allow me more time for paper crafting!

    “Happy Holidays” to you and your family.

  113. I love to make my own calendars, so i guess that would be one New Year’s resolution- to make my own calendar to enjoy. These look like fun and beautiful items to use for a 2012 calendar. Thanks for the chance to win.

  114. This would be so lovely to win, who doesn’t want a calender like that!!!

    And I also would like to wish you and your loved ones a very merry Xmas and a very Happy and creative 2012!

  115. I love these calendars! My news years resolution – to win these! It will probably work as well as my other attempts!!! Blessings, Claudia

  116. My new years resolution this year is to try to eat healthier and get more exercise so I can start working my hobby demo to become a business. I love crafting and art so much so I would like to share it.

    Happy Holidays!

  117. Love your website. It is nice to know that for those of us who need inspiration your website is a treasure chest full of fantastic inspiration!!! My resolution for 2012 is to learn to have more patience for the seniors in my life!

  118. For New Year’s I would like to eat better and move more. Love your blog! So full of ideas! Thanks!

  119. These calendars are a great idea. Nice and compact and quick & easy! How about doing one a month! If you feel you can’t get all 12 done now….do one a month and the person you send/give to will get a surpise all year long!

  120. All of your creations lately have been so inviting and cute. Maybe I will have a chance to do some crafting during the Christmas Holidays.

    I have always loved those calendars in the tin. They are also the cutest. Fingers crossed to see if my number comes up!

    Thanks and Merry Christmas


  121. I make New Years’ resolutions but I’ve usually forgotten them by the end of New Years’ Day! I love these calendar sets. I’d love to win the items to make them!

  122. What fun goodies you are offering.Thank you so mcuh. I L*O*V*E little pencils too!

    Merry Christmas…Laura

  123. Hi! You always have such great give-a-ways. I love the calendar tins.
    I’m not one for making new years resolutions because I never stick to them.
    Thanks for the chance to win. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
    Mary Sarah

  124. My new years resolution is to clean out closets and my storeroom and keeping them tidy forever…haha.
    Love your calendar tins and all your great ideas. Thanks for the chance to win.

  125. My resolution is to work on my scrapbooks and complete them! Thanks for all the great ideas and the chance to win the calendars.

  126. Love the Calendars!! Stopped making New Year Resolutions many years ago. Why set myself up for failure? LOL

    Happy Holidays!!!

  127. Absolutely love the calendar tin idea….was looking for something different than cards this year, just in the nick of time….thanks so much.
    Resolutions…I WILL utilize my crafting supplies in 2012.

  128. The only resolution I make is not to make any resolutions! I think that making lasting, positive changes in your life takes thought, planning and a commitment that most of us just don’t have the energy for after the holiday season!

  129. What a cute project. Love the tins .. so versatile.

    No resolutions for me. I haven’t done those for years … can’t be bothered putting myself through a guilt trip if I don’t ‘measure up’ and not hit my goals. 🙂

  130. Love calendars……….the more I own the more I hope to get organized. Very pretty calendar tin. and I love the pencils!!

  131. Oh my gosh! I love this project and would LOVE to win the supplies to make it at home. As far as New Year’s resolutions, I haven’t decided yet whether I’ll make any. I’m usually not very successful with them.

  132. These are so great! I’d love to win. I’ve quit with New Year’s resolutions and instead have worked on a more comprehensive plan that is more detailed and workable.

  133. I made a resolution a long time ago to not make resolutions for the coming year; rather just do it when the idea or thought comes to mind. Been fun viewing the ideas and give-a-ways.
    Merry Christmas to all

  134. Love the calendar tins. I always give calendars for Christmas gifts. Thanks for all your great ideas!

  135. My New year’s Resolution every single year is to lose some weight and exercise more. This year however will be a tough one for me as my sister and little nephews are moving far away (Texas from Quebec) and my last baby is moving out and on to college 🙁 so instead of worrying about weight I have decided that I need to put my attention into card making and paper crafting to lift my spirits and keep me occupied. So to answer your question my new New Years Resolution is to actually get all my Christmas cards made for next year before December and to finish my 2006 scrapbook……! Thanks for keeping me inspired through your web site!

  136. Hi Andrea,
    I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions. I make a daily list and hope to
    stick to that. : )
    I love your Calendar tin!! You have shared soo many wonderful
    projects with us. THANK YOU SOO MUCH!!
    Have a healthy and Joyful Holiday!

  137. I love your stuff, would love to have those cute calendar tins!

    My New Year’s Resolution is different this year! I am trying to do something that I have never been able to accomplish before……stop worrying! I have alot going on in my life and the bad economy has played a huge role in my life as a single mom and single provider of our household, but God has been faithful to provide to me and my sons all we need. He does not want me to worry and I worry about everything, always, so this year, I am seriously going to try to stop and give the worries to him. Thanks for sharing!!

  138. This is a great project and would help me out with my annual resolution to be more organized. Somewhere along the way I manage to lose momentum — always. I’m better off not making resolutions, but writing down goals in little bitty increments. Thanks for so much inspiration.

  139. I really love these calandar sets. They are the perfect “year round gift”. My only New Year resolution so far has to do with my crafting. I have decided that since I have a whole cabinet (6 ft. tall-2 ft. wide) full of “leftovers”, “meant to use”, and so on and so forth, I will try to go the whole year without going to Hobby Lobby and Jo Anns to buy more, and make things out of what I have. I will. pf course have to buy adhesives and such things, but no more punches, die cuts, and extras til what I have in stock has been depleted. This may sound easy for some of you, but just seeing a HL or Jo Ann coupon sets my mind to thinking of what I can get at a discount! So I would love to win the calandar sets (not buying-Lol) but if not, just wish me luck in keeping to this resolution!


  140. I actually made two this year and have already started with one of them… #1- Make more time for ‘ME’ to get healthy and happy. #2- to Make one new project each week. I come to your site repeatedly for new and fantastic Ideas… I joined, when you first launched and tell all of my friends to visit whenever I can… Thank you for all of the hard work and dedication you put into this wonderful site… You are a Blessing 🙂


  141. Andrea, grateful thanks for all you do! Hmmm..New Years’ Resolution? My blog is sadly neglected, so try to post each day or week…teehee!
    Happy Holidays!

  142. Resolutions – I make them and then they go out the window!!! But this yeaqr I am determined to try harder – Get fit and spend more time doing crafts rather than thinking about doing crafts!!!!

  143. Yep, I’ve seen you show these before and I love them. As for resolutions – no I don’t make any – never have.

  144. My new year resolution is to catch up on my two grandchildren’s scrapbooks and to make cards for this year. Thanks Andrea

  145. Yes I sometimes make New Year’s Resolutions. This year my New Year’s Resolution is to do more with the life God has blessed me with and try to turn a negetive into a positive. Best wishes to you and yours…

    Happy New Year all!

  146. Thanks so much for the chane to win! These would make great little gifts! My New Year’s Resolutions (yes, it’s plural!) are to hopefully be a little more organized and to put some time aside for myself… so I can have fun papercrafting! Happy holidays 🙂

  147. I do not usually make resolutions, but this year I think that I will have to make one to create my Christmas cards by the month…so they will all go out on time!!

  148. I do usually make a New Year’s resolution to lose weight and actually did lose 10 lbs this past year! Love the bundle you are giving away. And love all your ideas and inspiration.

  149. New years resolutions: get back to scrapbooking, embroider quilt blocks and make blankets for all the grandkids, and, as always, make more cards!! Thanks for a chance to win a wonderful prize! Happy Holidays!!

  150. Thank you so much for all the wonderful inspiration and ideas! And thanks for getting me thinking about New Year resolutions. I tend to forget to make any until after the fact.
    My resolution for this new year is to make cards, scrapbooks and projects for the people closest to me. It’s like the cobblers children that never have shoes:)
    Merry Christmas!

  151. Not to make any resolutions is mine, because they don’t work for me! Have to find a different, non-January 1 way to improve myself!

  152. Mine is always to become more organized and less frantic, mostly less frantic! LOL. As always you inspire me… love the project
    Merry Christmas to you & yours

  153. I just love the projects you present to us. Thank you so much. I especially love the calendars and the Hot Chocolate for Two. I’ve been making several of these and would love to know where I can find the cute background papers you used on them. I’ve looked at all my craft stores near my home, but haven’t found any with hot chocolate mugs on them. Do you have this in stock so I can order it? Thanks for the info.

  154. i enjoy your website and tuts immensely and the inspiration gained there from.No resolutions but my goal is to try and craft everyday now that i have retired and to share with others .Calendars are a great idea and so too all the projects.

  156. These calendar tins are awesome. You are terrific! Thanks so much for taking the time to share. Merry Christmas to you!

  157. I love to set New Year’s Resoulutions!!! For this coming year I must say I have some great ones!!! The first one is to continue on the getting feeling better/healthy side my specialist is working on with me, second to complete al of the unfinished craft projects I have started, and third to enjoy my family more and not always be in a hurry from the time I get up until I go to bed at night. I want to enjoy every moment more!!! Thanks for sharing your blog with the world and encouraging all of us t do our best in life!

    Wish you a Blessed Christmas and a Happy new year .
    kind Regards

  162. I love this idea. Especially the little tin. Wishing you a fantastic New Year. Thanks for all the ideas.

  163. Great freebies!! My new years resolution is to get into better shape. I lost my mind and signed myself for a mud run. It’s at least 18 military styled obstacle courses in the mud. Did I mention I lost my mind??

  164. These would make wonderful gifts for all my stamping friends! I DID keep last year’s resolution and lost 20 pounds! This year’s is going to be to get my craft room more organized. Merry Christmas to you and your family! Terry

  165. Thanks for the cute project, what a nice gift it would make for someone special and myself of coarse!

  166. I’d love to win this. I’d also like to make a lot of these. Resolutions? I really want to re-organize—again! Not only my stamping room but also throughout my house. It’s getting out of hand. Thankis for the chance to win.

  167. I love the calendar tin and just think what wonderful gifts it would make. I sure hope I win one….

  168. My New Year’s resolution is to stay caught up on my cards. And to keep my craft room organized.

  169. My new years resolution is to try to make at least 2 cards per week. I hope I can stick with that. I would love to win one of your tins I have wanted to do one of these.

  170. I would love to win one of your tins. My new years resolution is to work with my Sister to help get some classes going.

  171. My resolution is to go through my stash of “stuff” stamping and otherwise, and put it to good use, or give away to someone who will! Love those little tins- if a person can’t get organized with such a neat tool, not sure what will help!

  172. I would absolutely love to win this kit set as I debated back and forth over buying them or not. I’m a Libran so making decisions is not my strong point. I would love to be able to use a little of my creative side again. Being off with my second child I am just going to try to spend less and stress less and enjoy both my boys before the first one leaves for school in sept 2012, but I don’t set resolutions because I dont’ stick to them! Hope it is me you pick……!!!!

  173. I generally stay away from making New Years resolutions. I have goals etc that I’m working towards instead – that works best for me.

  174. I just love your calendars and all the ideas to go with them…………..and my #1 resolution for
    2012 will be to do One Incoming Generating Activity per day for my business.

  175. These calendars are so cute! What a great gift idea. As for resolutions….can’t say I ever managed to keep one for very long but there is always hope!

  176. I just love your card!! I also have always loved your calendar tins. What great gifts!! Have a wonderful Christmas.

  177. I plan to organize my scrapbooking stuff and then tackle all the project I have put on hold.
    moving has a way of making one clean up!

  178. Calendar tins…what a wonderful idea; would love to win this set! My goals/resolutions for 2012 would be less procrastination and more productivity! Love your website and all your creations.

  179. I have been searching everywhere for those tins down under and I just haven’t been able to get my hands on them as yet. Your blog is so inspiring! I am so excited to be part of the papercrafting world!

  180. I have to say that finding your website has been great. I love all of your projects. I hope this year that I will get back to scrapbooking. I have soooo much stuff and I feel guilty that I am not using it. I received one of your calendar tins last year as a gift. They are beautiful to make as gifts for family & friends.
    Keep up the good work and I wish you and your family a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR.

  181. You always inspire and make it look awesome. Thanks for all your ideas…. Resolutions… hmmm I usually make mine at the middle/end of January so not sure yet !

  182. The calendar tins are just adorable.
    My resolution is to let others see Christ living in me daily and to get my scrap/stamp room organized!

  183. Love the idea of a calendar in a tin and the card is really sharp. My resolution is organization, organization and when done—-more organization! Can’t find anything, including my sanity, since I moved!!

  184. I so love these projects and have been admiring these calendar tins for so long now! I don’t have New Year Resolutions as I always break them anyway. I would rather take each day as it comes and make the most of each!

  185. I don’t usually make resolutions as I don’t like to set myself up to fail. 🙂 But I’m really into organizing my stamp room and then I’d really like to get proficient in MDS. I figure if I’m more organized, I’ll be able to take the time to look in to digital crafting. Love your tins with the calendars in them! I would love to get the free ones! Thanks for a great project idea!

  186. I usually do not set resolutions but I am working on some for this year. Most are centered around enjoying crafting more. Love the calendar tin and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I win!

  187. I never make New Year’s resolutions. I set goal for myself all the time, sometimes I manage to make them & sometimes I don’t. I love your calendar sets. I was going to order some to make for gifts, but just did not have the funds to do it at the order time so it would be wonderful to win them. I have several Jan. birthdays so I could still put them to use. Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas.

  188. I always think about new year resolutions, but these past years my DAILY resolution is to be thanksfull for each and every moment of each and every day! They are all gifts and blessings. That calendar tin is so darn cute. Would love to be able to win and create them! Merry CHIRSTmas!

  189. Love all your ideas Andrea..and would love to have some of these little tins and notepads for gifts!! I have used little pencils like those for my post-it note sets. Love your size of the calendar. Thanks for your continued inspiration.

  190. My New Year’s resolution will be to gather all my past pictures and divide them among my four grown boys. I bought 4 albums and I’m going to scrap book a whole lot. I know in the future when they will show this to their children I’m sure they will appreciate this better.

  191. Thanks for this chance to win and a big thanks for all the project ideas…Merry Christmas and seasons greetings…healthy new year as well. Cheers,

  192. My New Years Resolution is going to be……to tidy my craft room after I use it! I have also joined the Stampin Up family, so I am really hoping to be successful at that. I love your blog and all the ideas you give, and hopefully I can put them to good use! Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  193. I have already made my resolution to make all my cards in advance. I usually wait until I have just enough time, then I have to hurry. I did that with my Christmas cards this year and had to rush because I was sick from October until December. I have saved all your emails and plan to use them as my guide. My 2nd resolution is to finish the 3 scrapbooks I have started. I keep putting that off because I would rather do cards. Thanks for your newsletters and blog to help me keep my resolutions for 2012.

  194. My resolution is to get back on track finding a way to have a healthier lifestyle. I was doing 150 minutes of exercise per week or more. I need to get back to that makes a huge difference. Thanks for your blog and sharing your ideas to inspire us all!

  195. I’d love to have this to give as gifts.
    New Year’s resolutions are not part of my tradition — I found out long ago they are easy to make, but not easy to keep. I try to set simple goals that I can reach throughout the year

  196. Merry Christmas Andrea! My New Year r esolution is to start a blog. I love your calendar tins and have been eyeing them for awhile! I would love to win this set. Thank you for the opportunity and all the wonderful ideas you share!

  217. Great gift idea! Would love to win this giveaway! I have so enjoyed all of your tutorials. I haven’t made any ‘formal resolutions…but I would really like to be more organized and slow down a bit for the New Year!

  218. I enjoy making cards, I enjoy crafting, I love how you have stepped it up with the altered CD tins and making very useful and beautiful creations.

  219. Well I usually have a New Years Resolution in mind but I never actually say it to anyone or out loud since I have a very hard time sticking to it. Although in my thoughts I try to fulfill it. I guess it’s like nothing else, whatever that resolution might be we try to stick to it until we reach the point of giving up. Then we tell ourselves ok starting Monday …..
    Thanks for all your inspiration.

  220. I do make resolutions but they are now fewer and more realistic. I don’t set myself up for failure anymore. One for 2012 would be to scrapbook once a week. Thanks for the chance to win the tins. I’d love to win!

  221. My New Years resolution is to be better prepared for my clubs and demo’s. I love the site and all the great ideas. Have a great Holiday!

  224. I think I make the same resolution every year LOL I always say that I am going to use up more of my stash of crafting goodies – and I do really well for the first month or so…then I see new papers or ribbon and before I know it my cart is filled and I’m trying to find a home in my craft room for all the new goodies 🙂

  225. Thanks for all your shares. Hoping all you lovely ladiesiHave a great and wondereful New year. Oganization is the resolution .

  226. I made a New Years resolution 15 years ago and have kept it ever since… It was never to make a New Years resolution again. Best one I’ve ever made and the only one I’ve ever kept. Love your projects! Thanks for the inspiration.

  227. I love your site Andrea, and all your creations. I would love to win this give away. It is very generous of you. Thanks so much for the opportunity. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

  228. Andrea, I have followed your blog for 5 or mre years-you continue to WOW! me.
    Thank you for inspiring me.

  229. After failing at the weight loss resolution for so many years, I’ve decided to try a new approach this year: shooting for something I actually MAY do, something more enjoyable! lol! I plan to organize and set up a true crafting room in my upstairs bedroom. I want a space that’s only for crafting. I am in my 10th year as a Creative Memories consultant and have used my dining room table as my ‘space’ up until now. I do have one ‘craft table’ in my office that I used at one time, but now it just holds my overflow supplies that won’t fit on my work table! So, we’ll see how this one plays out!

  230. These are so cute and functional! My New Year’s Resolution this year is to eat healthy and stay active with my family.

  231. I love these note card calendar tins and your other talented creations. My new years resolution will be to have more creative visualization and not to allow fear to hold me back. And also be more organized especially with my time.

  232. I used to make resolutions such as eat more healthy (after consuming many holiday cookies, etc.). But now I set goals daily to become a better person in all ways. Thanks for giveaway.

  233. What a beautiful project — I’d love to win and share the supplies with my friends and family. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  234. Thanks for your giveaway. Your inspiration and generosity is awesome. I usually don’t make New Year’s resolutions but this year I really am determined to lose the weight that I put back on in 2011.

  235. My new years resolution is to keep up the good work. I have lost 41 pounds in the past few months, and I am really on my way to a healthier life. Love the calendar kit. What great inspiration! Now where do I go to purchase some?

  236. thank you for all the videos you do they are just so great . have really given me some great ideas.. love those tin/calenders . i just may have to orders those from you . thanks again.

  237. Well, gonna try to make a couple here!
    First and foremost,
    I am gonna make 2012 a pay it forward year, but I am gonna try to doat least 1 nice thing for someone everyday

  238. Yet another extraordinary way to use an ordinary object! Love the way you used the tins. How do you keep your creative energy going and going and goin? Thanks so much for the inspiration. My New Year’s aspiration, and resolution, is to work on my own creative signature style.

  239. New Year’s resolutions… Yes i have made a few hopefuly i will hold myself accountable. Grow my business and slim down a few inches.. lol Thank yo for all that you do! Have a Merry Christmas!

  240. To be able to spend lots of time with my family who are the centre of my universe :). Love the calender tin idea, would really love to own this.
    Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent with us, it is much appreciated.

  241. I love your site. I try all of your challenges and tutorials. My n
    new Years resolution is to make more time for card making and crafts.

  242. Love your Freebie Friday’s…Thanks for another chance to win…I’m hoping in the New Year to do more scrapbooking than I do now…Happy Holidays to All.

  243. My resolution is to just be a better person. More family time, more crafting with my 9 year old daughter, and to continue to learn about everything, crafting included! My daughter would LOVE one of the giveaways. When she saw it, she said she can use it for her CHORE CHART. Well, maybe we would BOTH love it if we won!

  244. This year my resolution is to organize my craft room. It’s difficult to duplicate your great ideas and challenges when you can’t get to your supplies because they are spread all over the room.

  245. I would love to get more organized and to lose some weight and wish for World Peace. Thanks for the chance to win, I wish you and your families and very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year.

  246. I really LOVE the calendar kit it is so awesome I really wish i win it because I really never win anything and my resolution is to be more organized to the calendar set would really help!! Merry Christmas for you and your family <3 Selena!!

  247. These are too cute!!

    My new years resolution is to set aside more time for my 8 year old! (I have a 1 yr old who is into everything!) I will manage my time more to fit him into each evening. Another resolution is to set uside a few dollars each week so we can enjoy a family vacation at the end of the sumer 🙂

  248. It’s always good to start the new year with a great calendar. By making it my own, I take more ownership of my projects, resolutions, etc. Here’s to a great 2012 year and more wonderful ideas from the Paper Crafter’s Library!

  249. I find so much inspiration on your site. My new yrs Resi is to be more organized in stamping projects. (It seems before I know it the surface is cluttered). I need to re train myself to put away as used. My project for the lst of the yr is to do gift calendars. These supplies will be perfect! I love the project. Merry Christmas! Karen Gullett

  250. The obvious new years resolution is to loose weight, but my true one that I really want to work hard on is improving my papercrafting business. After finding this website, I think I have a good start. Thank you so much for all you have done!

  251. This is really agreat little gift for the gal/guy on the go. Thanks so much for sharing. My New Years resolution is to get organized with my crafts. I am on a god start as I just hired a builder to redo my garage into a craft room for me. MY SPACE!! I am so excited and can’t wait for it to be finished and I’m sure I can keep my resolution.

  252. I absolutely LOVE the calendar tins. Everyone in my family needs one on their kitchen counter. So, guess what my next project is going to be? Yep, calendar tins for everyone!!!

    Thank you so much!

    Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Happy Hannukah!!

  253. Andrea, I love the calendar tins! Alas, I don’t love resolutions!
    But, I resolve to increase my crafting time: stamping, paper-crafting, sewing – pillows, totes, hot pads, decor.
    I wish all the Paper Crafters a very merry Christmas and a safe & happy New Year!

  254. My resolution for 2012 is to get organized and to make time to make cards for the special people in my life. Your calendar tin is a great project.

  255. We are currently at the tail end of a HUGE remodel at our home. My daughter’s husband was killed in a car accident and she and her 2 children came back home to live for an undetermined length of time. We kept saying our house would be perfect for two old people but that just isn’t happening. SOOOOO…after adding over 1800 sq ft and a four car garage I will be turning the original 2 car garage into my studio for crafting. My goal is to have it organinzed, cabinets installled and lighting complete by this time next year. Wish me luck!!!

  256. Hi Andrea,

    What a perfect gift the Just a Note Calendar tin would make and so easy to complete. Thanks for your wonderful inspiration. I look forward to your e-mail posts each week. Merry Christmas and I hope your New Year is full of inspiration, good health, happiness and prosperity.

    Warm regards, Jean Oliver.

  257. These tins are right up my ally!!! I love this idea. I do not do New Year resolutions but I am trying to become more organized.

  258. Great video! Thx for sharing.
    My #1 resolution (I have many!!!) is to get organized in 2011. I despoerately need some order in my life.
    Happy Holidays!

  259. My resolution is to
    practice gratitude
    to be less judgemental
    to take a moment each day and look at the positive in the day and not the negative
    love your site and appreciate the freebies you have provided in this holiday season!
    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  260. I like those tins, they’re really cute.

    New Year’s resolutions, usually it’s something silly like , get organized or get some part of the house redecorated. Like that ever happens, lol.

  261. It is so nice to sit at my desk with sunshine outside looking at the wonderful ideas you share. I am recuperating from a fall/broken jaw so checking into your site is healing. It encourages me to
    realize that there are truly beautiful creations that can be made through the world of stamping. Thank you.

  263. Happy Holidays to all!!!! I just love your site and all the great ideas you have. I especially love that you are so willing to share. Have purchased from you in the past and have had great service! My resolution for this year is to get my stamp room moved to give me more space and be better organized. I would love to make more projects and the metal tins would be a great starting point!!!!

    Thanks for all your ideas and encouragement!

  264. New Year’s Resolutions…I never stick to them, so one year I made a resolution to not make any New Year’s Resolutions!

    The tin note set is really cute and simple. 🙂 Love it.

  265. Thank you for all you do for us subscribers. I would love to win you calendar tins. My goal for 2012 is to start scrap booking family photos and do so on a daily basis.

  266. I am thinking that Andrea is having an enjoyable relaxing Christmas with her family. If it was as crazy for her as me all internet, email etc was put to the side as I got prepared for Christmas and got my family inorder. I hope that is the case for you to Andrea. You need to take some away time (as I like to say! lol)
    Hoping you had an enjoyable Christmas day with everyone at home and I look forward to more of your wonderful creations in the New Year. Take some time with your family and away from the crazy world of internet! Will check back to see when the rush of Christmas is over to see the outcome of this fantastic calandar kit. All the best to you in 2012! Chris

  267. I really enjoy using all your ideas! Thanks so much for sharing. I have not really made any “New Year’s” resolutions but plan to set time aside for plenty of stamping and creating and to keep working on my health.

  268. Keep up the great work Andrea! My new year resolution will be to be able to work on my scrapbooking on a more consistent basis.

  269. Hi Andrea,

    Thankyou so much for your understanding to my mistake in ordering the tinbox calendar sets, you made it all happen for me and i was so excited to sell all my tinboxes at the xmas craft fair on the first day!! I should have had more but who would have known they would be so popular. I will be definetely ordering these again for 2013!!!
    Thanks so much
