diy {best of my days calendar 2013}

So, this is not related at all to the Best of My Days Calendar…but I have breaking news to share….

Little One is standing on her own!

She has a cheering section of 6 people each time she does it. The longer she stands, the bigger her smile gets. Now, I need to capture her with my camera and not my phone. She is so proud of her accomplishment – I am too!

I am ahead of the game this year! This marks the third year I’ve done this little download on my blog. Last year’s version was recently featured in Fresh Style magazine, so I’ve been getting more requests for the new version.

If you are new to the blog, this is a very simple idea. It is kind of like a little notepad, but with a goal of recording something great from each day. Maybe it is a big event or maybe it is just something small. Recording the joys of each day helps me nurture gratitude in my heart. The calendars were actually created with the idea of giving them as a gift at Christmas. It can be something to slip in with gifts for friends, teachers, family and kids.

Step 1: Download the pdf files by clicking here. (you will need to open each file, then go to the top left corner “File”, then download)

Step 2: Print each pdf on cardstock paper.

Step 3: Trim each page. Mine are cut to 3.5″ wide. I also trimmed the top a bit so the ribbon would bleed off the page.

Step 4: Punch a hole in the top corner and add a metal ring to hold them all together.

Step 5: Add paper, ribbon, tape, etc. to wrap around the calendar for a bit of embellishment before you give it as a gift.

The October/November SnapShop is now full.  I am considering doing another one in December depending on how much interest there is. If not December, the next one will be late January or early February. I am selling gift certificates for 2013 courses again. You can find more info on SnapShops by clicking here.
