You've probably heard me say that Somerset Life is my favorite publication. I love the idea of elevation the ordinary. I have been using a monthly calendar like the one above to keep my schedule in order for years. Last week I flipped to it to check a date and thought, now why haven't I tried to make this prettier?
I started by punching a bunch of tabs from patterned scrap paper as well as 2x2 inch squares to randomly cover some of the dates. In some of the squares I left "paperless" I stamped some images. I finished by tying a bookmark to the spiral to mark the month. While this might look like a lot of work and for a month that would soon pass by, never to be looked at again, it was quick, easy and I used all scraps. Much prettier!
Well I washed up some raspberries and made some whipped cream earlier and the kids all want some before bed. I better serve' em up before they attempt to serve themselves!
