    Welcome to the Calendar Workshop!​


    The new year is coming full speed and I know, for me, i want to be ahead to the game!
    Christmas too, if you can believe it, is actually just around the corner! ​

    I thought it would be fun to get a head start on making my annual Calendar and Calendar Christmas presents and want to invite you to join along!


    JOIN ME!

    Here's the idea:

    In the next 6 weeks, I want to make just 2 Calendar Month pages each week. By the middle of November, all 12 months will be complete and ready to make into a calendar or be ready to send off and get printed!

    Let's inspire each other and ohh and ahh over everyone's creativity!​


    Reserve you thread spot here and post your work weekly!

    Here's my 2 pages, January and February. I just used my Make Your Own Calendar templates and different kits from the shop! As this is a work-in-progress, i haven't decided on my orientation yet! lol! I'm thinking of putting my calendar on a clip board, at least for my own personal use! Pictures of that to come...

    Here's an inspiration board i put together to inspire you of the different ways others have made their handmade calendars....

    Amy Martin has some fabulous go-to Calendar Grids in the shop to make Calendar making even easier!

    And here's a link to the many ( and many more to come) Calendar Products in the store!

    So who's with me?!​

    And god bless you woman for kicking me in the rear on this. It seems like I'm always waiting till the last minute. I will so be giving myself a pat on the back and enjoying my holidays more, with this done by November!!

    I'll be back with pages :). Can't wait to see what everyone is doing. So much inspiration on your examples. LOVE

    I have been debating back and forth about even starting this project. I have wanted to do this for the last three years and have yet to get it completed. BUT you've all inspired me to give it another go.

    So here's my spot!!

    I attempt to do this every year... never quite get it finished in time to give as gifts. This year has to be *different* right?!? So, here's my spot!

    Question: Do I have to do the months in order? I'm inspired by the Halloween/Fall/Back to School kits right now.
     
  13. this sounds fun! I hope to do it :) It would make great Christmas presents

    I generally make calendars for the family *most" years.... I am thinking of making a "birthday book" this year for something a bit different.

    Time is pretty tight at the moment but maybe this will get me motivated... disciplined ... !!!

    I'm going to give it a try, too! I've wanted to do a calendar for the past couple of years, but never seemed to get it done. Maybe this will be the year! :)

    I too am in. I got mine done last year just in time, I was picking up the 4x6 ones I made from being printed two days before Christmas and still had to assemble. I made (2) 8.5 x11 and (3) CD size and (2) 4x6 size for Christmas gifts, with one of the 4x6 being for myself. I love making calendars.
