|The NEW and IMPROVED Calendar!
The Family Calendar.
My lifesaver. I constructed the original calendar this last year to keep the family on it's toes. With Baseball, Tennis, Guitar lessons, Doctor/Dental appts, Work schedules, and Hubby's travel schedule....we needed a central place! Each family member has a color and anything in BLACK is for everyone!
It has been helpful, but the numbers and monthly headings were getting a bit worn:
|The worn and tattered calendar!
I had printed out 31 numbers and laminated them. Then I punched them out with a circle punch. But after a year's worth of handling, I was missing the number "14" and the lamination was peeling:
So I decided to make Bubble Magnets for my numbers and decouppage the months on some cardboard to make them last longer!
Of course, I also couldn't let them be just plain white. I decided to make a bunch of colors.
And make coordinating Months in color:
Excuse the drying glue!!!
And then, of course, I couldn't leave the basket alone for the dry erase markers.
The basket "covers" coordinate with the numbers too!!
