2021 Calendar – 05 – Mai

May Calendar Page

Thank You! to all who are visiting my blog, whether for the first time or return visitors


I managed to a lot of bits and pieces during April.  I’ve now got a lot of plants started off ready for the garden.  Following the hernea operation the summer of 2020 I am now able to be a little more comfortable being active starting to prepare the garden for things to go out, although, with the M.E. and other conditions I still have to be careful and not do a lot to set off other symptoms.  Paceing is the key here I think.

The shitake mushrooms I had growing in the back utility room came ready for picking last month.

You can just see the half eater Simnel Cake I showed you I’d made in a previous post in the above photo.

There were a lot of them.  I made some soup and some beef and mushroom stroganoff. I’ve even put a pack in the freezer to make some more at a later date.

I had two bowls like this full, and it looks as if I’m going to have another, smaller, crop again.


Time to show you what I’ve put on my mother’s May calendar page.  If you missed seeing the previous pages you can see : January – Here! February – Here! March – Here! April – Here!

If you’ve seen any of my previous posts about the calendar I’ve been decorating for my mother month by month you will know that I ask her hat she would like next.  This month she asked for animals, didn’t matter what kind.  So I chose donkeys

What I Did

I used a Hunkydory decoupage image and layered it up. I used a matching insert as the background.

The finished piece was left overnight to dry flat before it was stuck up on the calendar with fingerlift tape.

I printed out the month in Welsh and used fingerlift tape again to stick this on.

The Finished Page

This is the panel ready to stick on the calendar.

Hopefully you can see the layers built up in this photo.

Here’s the topper on the calendar trying to show the decoupage dimension from the other side.

And here’s the full calendar page


More crafting to show you at some point so please do keep checking back for a look.

Have a great month everybody.
