I decided this year to do something different with my clipboard calendars. For years I have used my simple black ink drawings for the calendars. I do like the look of the crisp black ink against the white paper and especially when they are printed out on brown kraft paper (I love that kraft paper and use it to print out my labels recipe cards and other things around the house).
So this year, I went crazy and used some of my watercolor artwork that I have been working on. I do enjoy painting simple things and love the look of watercolor. So those of you who have been ordering my calendars over the years, I hope you are o.k. with the new look this year. It shouldn’t drain your printer ink too bad.
I also have available a simple basic calendar without artwork and with a little punch of color added or you can print it out in black, if your prefer that look.
The clipboard calendar is a great calendar. I have been using the clipboard calendar over 20 years now and it works great for family planning (everyone can see what is going on). I print out a separate one for menu planning. There is plenty of room to write in ( I don’t do well having to write in constricting form lines).
The planner calendar I can’t live without. I designed it to fit in a classic size planner that opens up, one month on two pages, so you have lots of room to write in and even space for notes and doodling. I have tried the electronically methods of scheduling and planning, but nothing works better for me than a piece of paper and a pencil. My life is scheduled from this calendar, and I would be totally lost without it.
For those of you who need a little more room for writing, there is the BINDER calendar. One month is printed out on two 8 1/2 x 11 sheets, and opens up so you have a glance at the whole month. This is great for teachers, family planning and makes a great wall calendar too.
I have a perpetual (valid for every year) calendar available as well. You just open your pdf attachment with pdx-xchange viewer or Adobe Reader. (If you want to save the changes you make to your calendar, you will need to open your pdf file with a pdf viewer. I recommend using pdx-xchange viewer. It can be downloaded for FREE here.
It comes in a set of the regular size and mini clipboard calendar.
So, there you have it… a few inexpensive ways to plan, schedule, and calendar the upcoming year. 2013 will be here before you know it. In the mean time, enjoy the last of your lazy days of summer. Where in the world did that term come from? I don’t know about you, but I am more busy than ever. I hope you are still taking time to sit in the hammock, play in the water or take an evening stroll in the cooler, yet still warm summer air!
The calendars are available to order in my etsy shop.
