How Crafty Girls get Organized

November 11, 2011

 

Lately I’ve been in great need of a bit of organization in my life. I’ve been offering so many classes at the new store that it proved tricky to keep track of what classes I was teaching when. So I made myself a calendar.

 

A ginormous chalkboard calendar to hang over my check out counter.

 

To make the calendar I started with a piece of chalkboard cloth (you can find some at Stitchology if you are inclined to make a calendar of your own).

 

I spent some time with my super long ruler carefully marking straight lines. Then I came in with a little fabric glue and rick rack to make the spaces for the days.

 

 

Once the glue was all dried I printed out the days of the week on paper and glued to the calendar.

 

 To finish up I printed out numbers and month titles and attached them to Velcro so I can move them around and switch them up each month.

 

And Voila, I have a super cool, super versatile, super big calendar to help keep me organized!  And the best part, each month all I have to do is wipe it clean with a damp cloth and start all over! 

Plus it's fun to decorate.

 

I herby crown myself Queen of the Crafts.

 

I mean that literally.

 

 

 

 

I plan on wearing this fabric crown I made daily.

 

You may call me Her Majesty if you wish, although it is not required.

Although it may help score you a discount on your Chalkboard Cloth

 

 

 

Happy Crafting
