Everyone done Christmas shopping? I still have a gift or two to buy...and we just woke up to snow this morning so it should be a fun day.
This time last year I was rushing to come up with some sort of gift I could give each of my family members for Christmas. It was not pretty. Then I decided I could do a calendar-everyone could use a calendar right?Since, I have gotten many requests to do another for 2010.
This year I think all the extra *stuff* has really been weighing me down. I have been trying to get rid of any clutter and really have been focusing on minimizing- knowing that in a couple of months we are going to be adding another into our family and all the stuff that comes with that is quite overwhelming. I know that sounds a bit out of place here (talking about a calendar) but the design of the calendar turned out very basic. I think that reflects my life lately. It was not at all intended- I just wanted something I could put anywhere and give to anyone. Not feminine- not masculine...basic. I suppose you could jazz it up a bit with some embellishments though if you wanted to.
Okay, back to the calendar. The calendar prints up without using too much ink- because again, if we are using these as gifts we want them to be economical. I put mine on a miniature clipboard I bought at Staples and spray painted silver but I also had an idea just to hang it with a bulldog clip on a wall or you could string a few months at a time across a wall. For gift giving I just tied a ribbon around it. You could put a tag on the ribbon...but this one is mine :)
I was also thinking you could use these as on a scrapbook page quite nicely at the end of a month.
I am hoping there are not any mistakes on this guy- I double checked it but you know sometimes you can check things a gazillion times and even have someone else look at it and it is still wrong. So, if you see a mistake please let me know so I can get it fixed and get a new one up right away.
That all being said- here is the calendar download
