2012 Desk Calendar

Do you have a 2012 calendar yet? Yes, I realize it's almost February. But it seems like come the 1st of the year, I am always scrambling for a new calendar. I discovered a free calendar download on the Very Merry Vintage Style blog and immediately saw potential. When I received my first Momenta products in the mail, I started making this 2012 desk calendar.


This started out as a $1 wood frame I bought at my local craft store. I used the Free To Be Me super paper pad and started altering it. I mod podged the base of the frame with paper and then fussy cut some flowers to add.


My life is not complete until I use baker's twine on my projects, so I added this banner with twine in the corner.


And some glittery letters!! So I don't forget what year it is.


After printing the calendar on white cardstock and cutting it out, I alligator clipped all the months together and attached to the middle of the frame.


When I am finally able to get back to work, I plan on having this bright fun calendar on my desk at work. It might make the transition back to work a little bit easier.

This project was my first on the My Momenta blog. Don't forget to check their blog everyday, there are new posts by all the designers on a daily basis. Lots and lots of inspiration to be found over there!! And did you know you can design your own alphabet stickers at My Momenta? Check out the video HERE and you can email Momenta for a FREE pack of stickers to try it out yourself! Pretty cool stuff.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
