Clip Calendar

I’m a bit of an old fashioned kind of gal (despite the smartphone, laptops everywhere, and new XOOM tablet on the way…) and I like my calendar in paper, thankyouverymuch. 

As convenient as digital or online calendars can be I just miss the feeling of actually writing important events or information down myself.  Maybe it helps me remember things to write them down.  Or maybe I just like playing with paper.  Winking smile

I’ve been meaning to update my scrap area calendar for a while (so the months on this are non-traditional) and I had an old clipboard hanging around so I decided to repurpose it!  I painted it, distressed it, and covered it in Pink Paislee and Mod Podge.  The calendar pages are an internet download.  I used flat stickers for the months so the pages would not be too bulky to stack and made hang tags to find other months quickly.  I finished it off with a simple refillable mechanical pencil tied to the top.

Love this! I have a clipboard that I bought and have been staring at for years, I think I am going to make me one of these. Thanks for the push!!

I love the tags hanging with the buttons. So creative and fun. I'm a paper calendar gal too. It's easier to run a house when I can just grab a pen and write in our activities. Great job!!
