I wanted to start the New Year off right...with a little more organization, so I ventured in to accomplish one more project before the year ends. Check out my new dry erase calendar!
Don't let me fool you, this project seriously stressed me out. I wanted the right type of frame and size and adequate sized boxes with extra room for more stuff. And then I had limited resources and so I was working with what I had and it wasn't working and I hate measuring...ack!
Let me first tell you that I didn't buy *anything* for this project. Nothing! Are you impressed?! I know...me too! I had a frame that had a little poster in it, but I hadn't hung yet, so I decided to pull the poster (it wasn't the right size anyway) and set it aside. I then mapped out the calendar portion in pencil, then outlined in marker. I cut the papers and bordered them in black and taped them together and onto the white backing. Then I just put it all together! I just realized how easy that should have been...oh my, my poor husband...he had to listen to me gripe.
BUT, I am WAY satisfied with how it turned out. Glass makes the perfect dry-erase surface! I have been less and less able to use my little purse planner, and I've been needing a big open dry-erase one like this for a little while. I'm ready to conquer having two children, and organization (and maybe weaning in 6 weeks) is the key, I'm SURE of it!
Aaaand, what's the first event that is going on my new calendar? My root canal. :( *Super* frowny face! Comin' to a theater near me on Friday....more on this later.
