diy: Daily Calendar Journal

Daily Calendar Journal {mama♥miss} ©2013

Forever ago I pinned this idea from Design Sponge.  And I thought now is as perfect time as ever to start it, a brand new year.  The idea is to write one sentence everyday describing something about that day.  A big thing or just a little thing.  Then, every year you do the same thing as another entry for that day.  A journal of sorts, but instead of having to flip back through an actual calendar you can see right there what you did the year before on that day – kinda’ neat huh?

Well, and OF COURSE, I had to put my spin on it – with a free printable for ya ;)  “Hi!  I’m Melissa & I love designing printables for you – nice to meet you! :)”

There are three PDF’s below, each with four different months.  They are each sized at 4”Wx4.75H”, and four of them will print out on a sheet.  I printed mine out on heavy cardstock & then laminated them (remember these need to hold up for years & I imagine that some little kiddo hands might be getting into them over the years – just a prediction ;)  I also fancied up the top of each card using these scalloped scissors.  I used ruled 4×6” index cards & cut 2” off of the right side to make them 4×4” (so they would fit in my porcelain berry carton).

Supplies I used:

I’m keeping it in my kitchen, so that I see it everyday to prompt me to fill it out.

Are you going to do it with me?  Pretty please?!

Do you think I will keep it up?  Will you?

Let’s do it together, we can hold each other accountable & remind each other!!!

Sounds like a plan-stan :)

    • hehe yeah I hear ya! I’m hoping I kind of find at least one original moment each day that isn’t – “changed a poopy diaper” – hahaha, although, it is what it is, & although the creative juices do flow most of the time – I do believe “changed a poopy diaper” may have to be an inevitable back up ;) Thanks for stopping by Ginger & leaving my some lovely comment love!!! xx ♥ m
