Calendar Journal

When I got home from work last night, AJ was finishing his book, so I decided to finish my calendar (I found it on Pinterest, but the original post is here). I love the idea of this. Every year, you write one line of what you did that day, and after a few years, you have this wonderful daily journal of your life!

I was almost done last night, but took a break, because dinner had arrived, and I had just messed up stamping March's divider. If you look closely at the last picture - you can see how I messed March up a second time! Only this time I didn't realize until I took the pictures...for now, I'm just going to leave it!

This is what all of the dividers look like. I really like how they turned out! I'm pretty sure the stamps are Recollections, but they are definitely from Michaels. For January and February I used clear ink and colored embossing powder, but for the rest, I just colored ink and clear powder. I made that change after messing up March because I couldn't see where I'd already stamped!

I didn't have any berry boxes, but last year, my best friend gave me a Vera Bradley apron, which came in this adorable box. Since then, this box has been a card/stamp/return address label holder, a photo holder, and an index card holder. Now its the home for my calendar!

This is everything all ready to go. Can you see how I messed up the March divider again?!

Have a great Tuesday...oh no, its only Tuesday! I woke up thinking it was Wednesday! Don't you just hate when that happens? Well, either way, have a great day!

Hey Katie -- Thanks for stopping by morningdewdrops and seeing my post of Molly Dolly. I like your idea; simple and "sweet memories" I mean it doesn't take much time to add one line of text. And I like your box. Terri
