Personalized Calendar ... :)

Had this idea of creating a hand made personalized calendar since many days. Am finally able to actually create it. Hand made because I'm writing the dates and personalized because I've added family photographs and birthday/anniversary reminders for myself. Really simple and even make for a great gift to near ones specially right into the new year.
Here's the plan ...
Requirements:
  • Handmade paper - any color of your choice, I always prefer white
  • Colored gel pens - If you get them with sparkler ink, its even better
  • Photographs of the family members/friends - Idea is to get at least 12 photo's one for each month. I've used this birthday/anniversary theme. So I selected photos of family members who have their birthday in that month. You could use other themes like seasons or festivals - so select seasonal/festival photo's to represent season or festival falling in that month. Photos having people in them make it more personal.
  • Decorative Items - Anything from colored ribbons to paper frames
Basics:

  • Cut the handmade paper sheet into 12 cards on which to create your calendar. The size should be enough to hold a photograph on one side and the calendar dates on the other.
  • Write the month name, followed by days and finally the dates for that month. You could use different color inks to represent the weekends. 
  • Highlight the dates on which there is a birthday/anniversary and you can write a note below as to what that date represents.
  • On the other side of the card, paste a photo or 2 of the people who have birthday or anniversary in that month.
Finishing:
Once the photo and calendar is created on the card, you can decorate it with as much stuff as you like.
Finally get a spiral bind to it and you are ready to go ... :)
