I created my own which took less than a half hour.
To create my board I assembled these supplies which I happened to have around the house.
Ruler Post it notes in different colors
Stick Pins (or in my case straight pins)
Nails/Hammer (optional if you want to hang the board up)
Cleared a space that I wanted to use and went for it.
First I measured the width and length of the board twice. I was feeling a bit insecure about my measurements and wanted to insure that I had four weeks to work with.
Measure twice, cut once
Next I used my ruler to measure each space. Again, I measured twice. I figured the lines should be as straight as possible but if you are more of a freestyler then go for it!
Then I added my notes.
My post it notes were a little bigger than the space provided so I cut them to for the squares. Since my goal is not to spend any money that I didn’t have, I used the scissors to cut the notes up.
I keep a pencil and a spare note pad handy in case I have an idea that I want to add.
I did not have thumb tacks handy but substituted with stickpins used in sewing.
So far I love the idea of the calendar but have to find a better method. I love the bright note paper that was used in the sample BUT will make do with what I have as well as smaller brightly colored flags if I want to highlight something.
And there you have it!
Another Thrilling Thursday.
