Beautiful Calenders…Old and New!

Two new calendars arrived at the store last week.  It got me thinking of the stack of old calendars that I have at home.  The pictures are so pretty and I hated to throw them away, so I just stacked them on the shelf with all my other “some day” projects.

When I went to the piano for worship team practice, I opened up the large white binder that the team leader had given me to hold my music.  It is one of those see-thru presentation binders with the clear front cover that allows title page to show through.  Ah-Ha…a place to use one of my old calendars. 


I sorted through the calendars and settled on a 2006 Lighthouse Calendar.  All I need to do was measure the binder, cut the picture to size and slip the picture into the clear-view sleeve!
I was even able to use the preview pictures that were on the back of the calendar for the spine of the notebook.  (I also added a picture to the back of the notebook too!)
Looking at the remaining mini pictures, I noticed that they were vertical.  I cut them out, punched a hole in the top, threaded and tied some ribbon.  Ta-Da!  Bookmarks!  Both projects took less than five minutes!
Back to the calendars that came into the store…

For Mary Engelbreit Fans, there is the Mary Engelbreit 2012 Wit and Whimsy Wall Calendar (#A14435)Witty and whimsical are two words that best describe Mary Engelbreit’s sensational artwork.  Her newest calendar features twelve never-before-seen illustrations, guaranteed to bring about a smile or even spark a laugh.  Packaged in its own full-color decorative envelope, and printed responsibly on forested paper, this calendar also offers plenty of room to jot down important events and special occasions.
