A new year a new calendar....

So I made my annual trip to the Dollar Tree this morning...no it wasn't the only time I go all year just talking about the trip to get my calendar/planner. Lord knows I will spend much time and many dollars over the course of the year there. But back to the calendar. They are super cheap...$1 and they are just as good as the day whatevers you get at the office stores for 20 times as much. After all you just need space to mark it up anyhow. Well this year I was super excited because they had them with plastic sleeves. The instant I saw it I thought oh the possibilities. It would also be a great way to work on one of my goals for the year to create something just for me. So I did a little pasting, and drawing and painting and have my 2010 calendar with a little bit of flair. It will make me happy every time I have to schedule a meeting (snore). I drew one of my girls who is supposed to look like me but she is much cuter than I and surrounded her with goals for the year to remind me of what I should be doing. So if you haven't gotten around to getting your planner yet run to the dollar store now!

Oh my calendar is nested in a lovely display of wallets from my pal at Gracie Designs. Check her stuff out. It is sweet.
