Marking time

Remember those great vintage post cards I found a while back?  I used them to create this perpetual calendar.  I saw the idea over at Design Sponge ages ago and finally had the time to finish it.

I am constantly wishing I was doing more to record all the great things going on in my life daily, while simultaneously trying not to keep too much and end up with Rubbermaid tubs full of things my kids made (I'm looking at you Mom).  

That's why I love this little calendar.  There is a small card for each day of the year.  The months are divided by my vintage postcards.  The whole idea is to write a little line about the day on the card, every year.  I think it will be really fun to compare what we were doing over the years. 

My only fear now is what to write on those boring days that come along.....  does"sorted massive pile of socks and underwear" count?

  1. What a neat idea! I'd feel so limited by only one line, but I love that it encourages you to record a snapshot of just one part of each day, rather than trying to sum up the whole day.
