Let me begin by saying that I have never been as excited about a pin as I was with this one. My sister was the one to spot it so I have to thank her for her sweet pinning skills. When I saw it on one of her boards, I literally got butterflies.
Meet the perpetual calendar.
The idea is that you have an index card for each day of the year. On that day each year, you write about something you did or a memory you would like to keep. Then, you add a new memory each year for the coming years. Let me put it to you this way, do you remember those glorious few months when Facebook would tell you what your status was on that same day last year or two, even three years ago? That’s what this calendar is going to be like!
I can only imagine what this calendar is going to look like 10 years from now. I get butterflies just thinking about it! Yes, I’m a nerd when it comes to stuff like this.
Since I was so pumped about this pin, I did start it on January 1st. And by starting it, I mean that I was recording my daily memories on a paper so that when I put the calendar together I would be able to fill them in later. Today was the day I finally put the calendar together. YAY!
Here is the link to the original post so you can create your own.
I made a few modifications to mine. I used the entire index card instead of cutting them in half. I anticipate using this calendar for years so I’ll need the writing space! I also found a plastic container at Staples that I thought would hold up a little better in the long run.
What do you think? Will you be making your own perpetual calendar?
