2017 is here…I can’t believe how fast time flies. You’re probably thinking about planners and calendars but I have a great idea for you. I’m really bad with dates. If I don’t write down birthdays, anniversaries etc. there is no way I’ll remember them and there is nothing worse than forgetting an important birthday. So I have them written down on my phone, but I’ve come to realize that is not always the most dependable thing. Phones can lose data or die on you and then what’ll you do…
So I came up with a way to remember…a perpetual calendar!
You’ll need an Ikea frame, double sided cardstock and 2 rings or Bind-it-All rings.
Cut 12 squares measuring 5 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
Add the numbers 1 to 12 to the pages and embellish.
Attach the pages to the frame with the rings.
The idea behind a perpetual calendar is that you only have months. It is not relevant for one year but for life. You simply write the dates you need to remember on the relevant month, for example my mom’s birthday is August 15th, so I’ll write it on the August page. The dates don’t change so you’ll have them written down monthly and never forget!
