Can you believe it's already February? Where does the time go anyway? I always have this excitement every time a new year rolls around because I get to make new calendars. Now this may be no big deal to some of you but I absolutely LOVE getting a new personal calendar and filling it out with all the important birthdays, school events, sporting events, doctor's appointments, etc. I guess it's that *office supply obsession* that I have. I KNOW there are lots of you out there just like me right. Please tell me there are some of you out there just like me, LOL!!
So I thought that I'd share some of my calendars with you this week. The one below is a little desk calendar that sits by my computer. I like having a calendar with just the dates on it for visual reference in case I need to make a note or see what day it is. This calendar is made just like a card. I cut my cardstock, fold like a regular A2 size card, add the little calendar and embellish just as I would a regular card. My mom picks these calendars up for me at little events she goes to with my dad. I think she scored a few for me this year at the farm show her and my dad went to a few weeks ago. Punches and ribbon are from Stampin' Up! The *save the date* sentiment is from a Stampin' Up! set called Mark the Date with a light stamping of the SU! background stamp called Form and Function over the top. Paper is from one of my favorite new companies called October Afternoon....I'm betting their stamps and paper lines will be HOT this year. Here's the way the calendar stands up straight without falling over. I simply cut a scrap of cardstock and scored it into thirds and attached to the inside card front and back. Easy peasy.
Now, I hope my calendar talk isn't boring you because I have a couple more posts of my calendar stuff for you yet this week. Let me know if you're a calendar lover like me, okay? How many calendars do you own? Have you switched to a BlackBerry or hand held calendar? Knowing me I'd love one of those too but couldn't bear to part with my paper versions so I'd have double of everything. More later, stay tuned.
