January 2010 Calendar Pages

Last year my goal was to create next years calendar pages in the month they were to represent. I managed to do half of the year, which was better than doing all of them at once. I think the pages I was able to do ahead of time came out better as I had more time and didn't feel any pressure to finish them. Today I finished January 2010 - my goal this year is to better than last year!
I've had this vintage postcard for a long time, but it wasn't my turn to do January until now. I love the soft pinks mixed with the deeper rose. The background paper is actually a fabric, the patterned paper is old Anna Griffin I had in my stash.

I can't remember every using a patterned paper for the calendar grid before. If we haven't then I think it's high time we did!

And now for a Brutus fix ~
It's been quite cold here, especially for Florida. Brutus is not fond of chilly weather. As a puppy he would lay by the vent and make 'Brutus Noises' until it came on. He still does that today, without the noises, just with a pleading look! This is his other trick - if you can't find him just look on the bed!
I had already turned the bed down, but hadn't gone to bed. I guess he decided to make himself at home! Look how he's burrowed under the covers! He also looks somewhat annoyed that I'm disturbing him.

Once he realizes I'm taking pictures and not making him get down he snuggles right back to how I found him. Silly dog!
