first item on the list of must make for my new craft room/office/sewing/blogging/photo studio - a calendar! i am admittedly a little scatter brained and if i don't write something down it doesn't exist in my life. plus i am super busy as it is - so i need to get my tish organized in a big way. and since my new shelves won't get put up for another week, the calendar is the first item of business.
read how to make this yourself after the jump!
you will need:
a large frame with a piece of glass (plexi won't work, you need the real deal)
paint squares (technically they are free samples at the hardware store..so it isn't stealing right?)
paper cutter (or scissors and a really steady hand)
glue or glue dots (i used glue dots and it was so fast and easy!)
dry erase markers
working knowledge of how a calendar functions
ok so once you have your colors - pick 5 to 7 that you really like. i used the basic size for the days of the week and got a few that were larger for the top section of the calendar - for notes, or drawings, or nonsense.
you have to cut the name of the paint color off first. i used my paper cutter because i am a terrible scissor-smith (it's a real thing) - just keep an eye on how much you cut off so that they size stays consistent throughout the colors.
how do you stay organized and on top of your calendar? leave some love and let me know if you make a calendar of your own!!
