thank goodness for google calendars, else i would have never realized that this year is already half way over! back in january i posted a list of goals for 2012 and wanted to do a little check in to see where i’m at with them. though it looks like i have a ways to go, there’s nothing like publicly announcing your goals, it’s such a motivator! i would love to hear yours as well. :)

12 thoughts and goals for 2012:

1) start a garden at our new place.

2) keep focused on communication with all of my friends and family across the states. work in progress!

3) get my dad out to california.

4) start soaking my own beans and sprouting my own sprouts.

5) continue to educate myself on the subjects that are near to my heart (food, health and creative endeavors). work in progress!

6) continue to put God first. in my time, my day, our finances, and in every way.

7) get back into my yoga routine.

8) submit a design portfolio to the fabric company of my dreams.

9) start saving above our norm, in efforts to prepare for a home and family in the coming years.

10) practice presence. life flies by to quickly. not sure that i will ever cross this one out!

11) visit bend, the grand canyon, lake tahoe and santa cruz.

12) nourish my creativity. work in progress!

how are your goals for 2012 coming?

It’s already January, and like always, I don’t have my new calendar yet. In effort to be both eco-friendly and frugal, I designed a re-usable calendar that never needs to be tossed out, using items I already had around the house!

Materials

8″ x 10″ paper or card stock

wine cork, sponge, or other circular or square stamp

paint

picture frame with glass

dry erase marker

pen

Directions

The first step is to create the calendar base using the paint and stamp to create the daily calendar boxes. Since this calendar will be reused monthly, you want to stamp enough days for a month that starts on a Saturday and 31 days long (up to six rows of seven columns).

Choose coordinating or contrasting paint color combinations – use just one color, or as many as you wish to compliment your space.

Use a pen to label the top of each column with the corresponding day of the week – this is the only permanent part of the calendar.

After your stamped mat has dried, place in under the glass in a frame. Hang it on a wall, or upright on a counter or shelf. Use your dry erase marker to re-write the name of the month, and the dates on the correct days every month. Use your dry erase pen to mark important events and occasions, like any other calendar. Leave a little extra space on the side or the bottom for notes.

Erase, repeat monthly, and never tear another calendar page again!
