For someone who's pretty disciplined about dates, I've always been interested in calendars. So in January I decided to make my own calendar - something that can be used year after year.



The mechanics :

I built my calendar using 31 picture frames for days of the month. They are spread out in blocks of 7 days (with 29th, 30th, 31st being the strugglers). The 'day of the week' tab is located on top in an acrylic pocket. I made 7 of these tabs to be changed monthly. Lastly the month is marked by chipboard alphas stuck on magnets. If you are interested in the full tutorial, it's on my blog http://angsandy.blogspot.com/2011/02/perpetual-calendar-tutorial.html



Quick Change :

To move to another month (e.g. November 2010) just
Replace the FEB magnet alphas with NOV
Slot in the #11 playing cards instead of the #2s
Use a 'day of the week' tab that starts with Mon



Hanging it :

It's a pretty big calendar (12"x12" plus a 3" onion dome top) so I mount it on the refrigerator. I backed the whole thing on foamboard for stiffness with magnets on the four corners. An added advantage is that my magnet alphas stayed firmly in place - strongly attracted to the fridge door.



Thanks for looking and if you have a fun calendar idea please let me know.

Amazing, and really colourful, a great idea, and much better than the ones you get from the store.
