This is one of those 'school' calendars....the ones that begin in August even though the next year is embossed on the cover. I looked long and hard to find this one. Narrow. Light. Leather-esque (!) cover, enough room to write stuff in the days (I have such a busy social life, you know! HA!!!). I'm picky with my journals/notebooks/pens/etc. (I ready your blogs...I know I'm not the only one obsessed with my 'school supplies'.)
This one worked fine for about 2 days. Red? Really. Not me (although it came in no other color). The pencil kept getting lost in my purse and was never with the calendar. I figured I could fix all this by giving it a facelift.
I'm not a planner. I really wish that was something I could wrap my head around, but it's not me. So, I piled up some fabric that might work, found some interfacing (wonder why I even HAD that?!), placed the calendar by my side to measure and started cutting and snipping, and stitching, and (you better sit down for this one....) ironing.
It evolved, without a pattern (although I did see something similar on pinterest), without a ruler, and without a definite plan.
And it worked. Can you see the itty tip of the pencil in there?
This took an entire morning. But it was worth it.
The red is GONE. (yeah, I know. I'm signing up for a 12-step program.)
