Sooo I know that mid-November is kind of late to decide that it's time to get organized and have an agenda, but on the upside you can say that it's better late than never  Wink

I couldn't find anything that I liked at Staples, so I ended up buying a cheap, plastic agenda. I've got lots of scrap fabric lying around and I found a piece that was big enough for the outside piece.

I decided to eyeball the size of the agenda cover and it ended up being too big so I had to sew some extra seams at the top and the bottom of the agenda to make it more snug:



It closes with a magnetic snap:



Another ooops  Grin the flaps of the agenda cover weren't large enough to hold it in. I used a piece of elastic, sewn in the middle of the organizer that I could then slip the back of the agenda underneath so that it won't fall out:



Here is a pic of the original plastic agenda:



Now I'm all set until December 31st.....2008 hehe.

Very cute! Instead of being late for 2008, just say you're getting a head start on being organized for 2009. =)
