I must have a calendar beside my computer. So when my 2011 one became outdated, my daughter Heather came to my rescue by creating a 2012 version. A teeny tiny one. And a bigger one. She has ones for you, too. Here. First, I will show you what I did with her teeny tiny version. I began by removing the 2011 calendar pages from the plastic stand that held them for a whole year... that I lived. I know it did. But yet... did I? No time to ponder or it shall be 2013. I needed to recycle the stand to support the new pages. It looks similar to a CD case.
This is what I did. 1) I ran a copy of Heather's calendar printable from her you make do™ shop's organized category and cut apart each of the twelve months. 2) I cut six 4 3/4" x 5 1/2" pieces of cover stock because that was the size of the old 2011 calendar pages that I removed from the stand that held them. 3) Now, think about whatever makes you happy. For me, it is my April 1962 Simplicity counter pattern book because as a child I spent hours wearing out the pages envisioning the pink floral summer pajamas my mother would lovingly sew for me to wear to summer Girl Scout Camp at Whipple Lake's Camp Vanasek in Brainerd (Minnesota) and handmade dresses for the upcoming school year.
4) Considering colors or themes of each season throughout the year, I copied and cut out some pictures from the pattern book and adhered them to the cover stock with a glue stick alongside each of the months of the sweet, teeny tiny calendar. See below. (Left to Right) January/February, March/April, May/June, July/August, September/October, and November/December
5) Insert pages into plastic stand to support them.
6) Look at your calendar and smile.
