Getting Organized (My Homemade Scrappy Calendar)

I have been desperately trying to come up with a way to create my own large calendar and I finally found a way! I am using the side of my refrigerator! I have been feeling just the slightest bit overwhelmed, ok totally overwhelmed, by all of the things that I need to keep up with for Breuklyn, so I decided to make use of all the scrapbooking supplies that I have. Fun times. I cut out thirty 3" x 3" squares out of patterned paper to make the days. Then I dug into my stash of stickers and kraft cardstock to make the little notes and reminders.

I have a stack of 2" x 2" kraft squares and a pile of stickers that I can use as more things are inevitably added to the list. I love it when I can use some of my ever-growing stash of paper. I love it when I am organized!

What a fabulous idea! Looks like you got yourself all organized. I understand the overwhelmed part, I've felt that way ever since both boys started school. For some reason it wasn't so bad when it was just Mitch at school.
