Welp, after my mission I have struggled to find the perfect planner. Moving out here, I got a 4 month planner and have kept it up to date as well as I could. What's even better is that I found this thing on Pintrest where I could create my own calendar! FABULOUS! (I love Pintrest.) So I did!
I went to the local Wal-Mart and gathered together some pretty different colored paint cards in the "Home" area. (I'm pretty sure the man working thought I was crazy laying out 35 cards on the table there taking up his space as I made a rainbow...) I then got some white poster and glue sticks. When I got home, I laid them out and measured them and cut them to create a 20"x30" square. Glued them all to the poster! Yay!
After which, I needed a frame. I bought a cheap plastic plexi-glass frame at Wal-Mart, but when I went to write on it with Dry Erase marker, it didn't come off so well. So I went to the local craft store, Porters? I think it's called? And I was browsing through their frames.... $40-$80... OUCH! Well, the guy working saw me and said, "All frames are 50% off today!"
So excited. So I went back with Bryan that day and bought a nice plain frame for $20. Glass and everything. Yay! Now we have a beautiful wipe-dry calendar in our kitchen which I love. Not only because I made it, but because it makes me feel more organized knowing what is going on and it looks pretty.
It helps to have it in the kitchen being that is where everyone flocks to. lol I even wrote the days in Japanese for Boy to learn. Yay! Rainbow prettiness!
