I really love this calendar because it is not only beautiful, but also extremely functional. The calendar is magnetic and can also be written on using Chalk Ink Markers. (They wipe off with a wet papertowel. Read more about them here.) Perfect for keeping up with a busy family's schedule.
I made magnets for each number 1 to 31 and magnets with the names of each month on them. All the extra month magnets are easily stored on the back of the calendar.
|(The September magnet is on the front currently).|
Each month all you have to do is switch out the month name and move the number magnets into the correct position. Then you can write in as many holidays, appointments, and reminders as you need to. You can also stick invitations or other papers to the calendar with the number magnets. Or any other cute magnets you happen to have on hand.
I currently have a white-framed version in my booth at Olde Salem Mercantile. I am about to start another version with the metal painted with chalkboard paint before the calendar grid is painted on. Still magnetic, still can write on it with ChalkInk markers, but a little more color contrast. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
In other news, I am so excited to have 100 followers! I try not to get too caught up in the number game but it is always nice to see there are people who are interested in my projects. A big thanks to everyone who has encouraged me by following or subscribing to Lovely Etc.
Linking up to these great parties.
