Last night, I made dividers for Dec, Jan, Feb, Mar, and Apr. They all have some sort of subtle meaning and were simple to make out of repurposed cardboard. I plan to stick a label on them with the month written or typed on each. 15 months ago
I made a template for the dividers, and I even have cardboard ready for these. I just need to buckle down and trace and cut them, and then they are ready for embellishing! 15 months ago
I finally had an empty Kleenex box, which is just perfect for this, so I started trimming that up and put my calendar cards in there. Now I just need to ‘pretty it up’ and add dividers. :) 15 months ago
I’ve finished stamping all of the dates, and I planned out a ‘theme’ for the monthly dividers, so now I just need to make those, and more importantly find or make the container that will hold it all.
And… just like that, I think I found a good idea! I think a Kleenex box (trimmed just right) will be perfect! The example that I got this idea from had used one of those cardboard-ish strawberry containers, but this time of year that would probably be rare. Now to use lots of Kleenex so I can have the box. Just kidding! :) 16 months ago
I was able to do through part of October before I had to go home. And, my friend was kind enough to let me borrow her stamp until I’m finished! So, tomorrow morning, I plan to finish the stamping part. Then all I have to do is make the dividers and find or make a box to keep it in.
This is such a fun and special heirloom in the making! 16 months ago
so, I borrowed my friend’s stamper over my lunch break, and I was able to get through August 1st, so I’ll see if she’ll let me borrow it again so I can finish this part up. 16 months ago
My friend Nat is willing to loan me her date stamper tomorrow! Now, I just need to remember to bring my calendar cards, and this goal will be a lot closer to completion! 16 months ago
I finished cutting and collating the cards.
I found an old broken date stamper here at the office… it’s doable, but it’s a little frustrating/time consuming.
I’ve stamped through today’s date, and may work on more over lunch, but I might also look at our mail room and bookstore and see if either has one. Now, I can neatly write my daily ‘journal sentences’ on the first five days!
Time to find greeting cards and other things to use for the 12 dividers and one more for a starter ‘Happy New Year’ title card. 16 months ago
I’ve cut all of my colored index cards to size, and collated them. Now, I need to remember to bring my white cards to work and slice 83 of them in half. That will give me one extra card.
I also need to get my hands on a date stamper, and make a template for month dividers. Then find memorabilia to turn into the month dividers and a container to store this calendar in. Perhaps I will order the stamper from Amazon? I might get it quicker that way. Meanwhile, I’m writing my entries on a card here at my desk and will transfer them once the calendar is set up. 16 months ago
I have officially started this project, and I’ve put out a request to three of my friends to see if they have a date stamper I can borrow for a couple of days. I was going to buy one (and still may have to) but if I could just borrow one it saves me some money, and I really only need it for a few hours or so.
I started cutting the cards and stacking them in alternating colors. Tomorrow I need to bring the white lined ones.
I also need to find things to use for month dividers and decide what to use for a box. This is a fun project, and it will count as a family heirloom- I just need to keep it up! 16 months ago
