Read A Book Day was an easy project for me because everyone
is my family is a book lover... I should say all the women in my family
 even Emily who didn't like to read at all ...
will read Harry Potter over and over...
so I made a bookmark...

I added some Stickles to the letters.

I wanted to tell you a little big about Blame It On Someone Else Day... Friday the 13th
When : The first Friday the 13th of the year

What a great time you can have on this day. Imagine all the problems, errors, and mistakes you could heap on someone else today. On this day you don't have to take responsibility or blame for any faux pas on your part. On the downside, this day comes as a double edged sword. While you are busy putting the blame elsewhere, someone might just be putting the blame on you!

So.......if ther is somethin wrong whif the spellin of this artickle, it's not my fallt.....its' yours.

Blame Someone Else Day could just be your day. But, watch out..... any blame you place today, can come back to bite you tomorrow. After all...what comes around goes around.

Another day that intrigued me  was Defy Superstition Day ... Friday the 13th!
Defy Superstition Day is your opportunity to break those superstitious beliefs that you have been living with most, or all, of your life. Did you note that Defy Superstition Day is celebrated on the 13th? It was established on this day for a reason.

Defy Superstition Day was created to help you to eliminate superstitions that have been haunting you. Use today as it is intended....... to blow away the superstitions in your life.   

We are offering some fabulous blog candy to a lucky winners - 
Just comment and give some bloggie love to each of the Calendar Girls.
For our blog candy, Lynne is offering a personalized mug mat monogrammed with your first initial.
 Please, don't forget to comment on all blogs
along with leaving your email address that we may contact the winner.
You get to chose either fall colors, butterflies, or apples. Shown is the butterfly fabric.
