Our own personalized sundial

While challenging myself with the new Tuesday Trio sketch, I saw that my PaperFacesDesigns co-DT member, Jeannie of The Polka Cabana, is one of their newest team members! Congratulations...to all of you!

As a personal celebration, I used the sketch as an excuse to try out this incredibly awesome online tool my husband discovered: a printable, personalized sundial generator! It's as easy and fantastic as it sounds. You just plug in your address (anywhere in the world) and it uses Google Maps to find your house and calculate the sun's direction in relation. Then you can download and print a PDF (I converted it into a JPEG and resized it).

And I did some stamping and detailing by hand too, to make it more exciting.
