Christmas Calendar Presents

Each year, I make a 4x6 spiral bound photo calendar of Izzie to giveaway to grandparents, aunts and uncles. I normally purchase the calendars at Michael's for $1.00. I saw the calendars there around Thanksgiving and for some reason decided not to buy them that day. Well, when I went back to purchase the 12 calendars that I needed...they were SOLD OUT! I checked three different stores and they were sold out at all three. So, I started to panic...I've only made the calendars for the past three years, but it has quickly become a tradition. Luckily, I saw this cute 4x6 Pocket Calendar Kit that Katie at Katie's Nesting Spot used and decided to try it out!

Here are a few that I created...

I really think the new version of our traditional photo calendar turned out great! I was able to purchase the download at half price for only $1.50. I quickly downloaded the kit and uploaded by favorite pictures of Izzie and Mac for each month. I decided to use chronological pictures, so everyone could really see how much Mac has grown and changed during 2009. Once completed, I uploaded the calendar pictures to Target and picked them up in a hour! It was very quick and simple, and each photo calendar (12 pictures) cost only $2.40!

I bought the clear plastic magnetic picture frames that can be placed on the refrigerator (2 for $2.00 at Wal-mart) and placed the January 2010 picture inside of each. I tied a bow around the remaining 11 that at the beginning of each the month the previous month picture can be replaced with the new month's picture.

The photo calendar tradition continues...
