Paulinas Calendar

Now I can start to show you some of the things I made as Christmas presents last year (LOL - it sounds like ages ago...).
The first one is a dice calendar I made for Heinrikes daughter Paulina. First I painted all the pictures with watercolours, scanned them, glued them on the wood and distressed them.
For the side of the box I painted this friendly snake.


I made another one (with different pictures) for my grandsons. They got a crocodile on the box.
I hope you all had a good start into the New Year. And now I wish you a wonderful weekend.

And I wanted to say THANKS for all the comments you leave. It's so nice to hear from you!

  1. Liebe Andrea,
    das ist eine großartige Möglichkeit Dir nochmals für dieses einmalige Geschenk von Herzen zu danken. Erst wenn man den Kalender in der Hand hält, kann man sich die vielen Stunden (besser Tage!) Arbeit vorstellen. Oh, aber die haben sich mehr als gelohnt! Paulina liebt ihren Kalender und hat bisher keinen Tag vergessen, ihn zu aktualisieren (noch mit unserer Hilfe). Und das Schönste ist es, dass Du nicht nur Paulina, sondern auch uns "Großen" eine riesige Freude bereitet hast.
    Ich liebe Deine Ideen und noch mehr deren wunderbare und so kunstvolle Umsetzung!
    Wir sind begeistert!
    Sei ganz doll gedrückt,
    Heinrike

  3. Hi Dora, thanks for the compliment! And no, this is a Full Scale Project, but I'd like to make this calendar as miniature for my Toy House one day.

  5. Hi Muke,
    cube 1 is: 0, 1, 2, 3, 7, 8
    cube 2 is: 1, 2, 3 ,6, 4, 5
    You have to have 1, 2, 3 on both of the cubes. The other numbers you can spread as you like.
    The number 6 is also the 9. Just turn it around:)
    Hope this was a help
    Kind regards
    Andrea
