As promised, though admittedly very late, here are the instructions for creating your very own massive wall calendar. As much as I would like to impress you all with my fabulous creative genious and tell you that I came up with this idea all by myself . . . that would be a big, fat lie. :) I came across this idea while thumbing through an issue of Cottage Living (thank you Thelma)! The link will take you to their very precise and detailed instructions.
I skipped many of the steps and eyeballed a lot. I was running out of ribbon near the end, so a lot of my bottom rows are pieced together from my scraps! I did use their numbers and day and month names - very neat and easy! I do not, however, have the cork-board base (although I think it would be very useful), I was using to tape and sticky tack for hanging all of our happenings.
Until - using ribbon, paper clips and mini binder clips - I added this new feature, inspired by The Nester:
I really like those hangy clippys :)
And no, I am not attending a baby shower on the 23rd, nor do I have a doctor's appointment on the 14th, but we did not have any "happenings" on the calendar yet, so I made some up :)
There you have it! (Aren't you proud of me? I'm already in July!??!)
