Project #2: Card Calendar

There are 32 definitions of the word “pin” on Dictionary.com.  They missed one…

pin [pin] verb pinned, pinning

  • to add an image to a categorized virtual “board” on the site Pinterest.com, by either uploading one’s own image, selecting images from a website, or by “repinning” an image from the Pinterest site’s “stream.”

With that said, there has been a lot of pinning going on around here and not enough doing.  My goal to complete 52 projects this year was born to alleviate that very problem.  I saw this idea, originally posted by Design Sponge, and loved it immediately.  The basic idea is to use a card for each day of the year.  Everyday, you write a little something from that day on only one line.  The first year all the cards will be blank but next year and the years after that, you can go back and read what you did on the same day each year.

So I picked up one of these from Anthropologie in “large” for 20 beans along with a huge stack of 3×5 index cards and a date stamp…

Then started stamping away…

I dug out some favorite postcards just waiting to be used for a project like this and, due to my container, gave them a little trim to make sure they fit nicely…

Then assembled…

  1. Thanks for sharing this idea/project Mariah. I like it. I don’t see myself doing it in that format but am cooking up a way to do it to fit my needs.

    Can I borrow your date stamp? 🙂
