hello new year
the long weekend is over.
the dishes are done.
the sun is out.
i'm ready for you, new year.
i have no idea what we have in store for one another,
but i'm ready to keep track of you.
i've been drooling over calendars i've spied all over blogland, but decided to go handmade this year.
handmade and low tech. very me.
there are easy to use, online templates for making your own calendar, but if you're low tech like me, you could spend a rainy afternoon and make your own template out of recycled materials. i knew there was a good reason i saved all those plastic spinach containers from costco.
i laid out a calendar template on graph paper, placed the clear plastic lid over the graph paper calendar, and cut out all those tiny squares with an exacto knife.
i cut a short stack of card stock in half and got busy sketching. my theme for this year's calendar: low-tech items which make my life better. so far i've got a canning jar, an iron, and a bottle cap. where would i be without the bottle cap? my sketchpad is filling up with ideas for the other nine months. but really, i'm in no rush. i've got all year.
