Perpetual Journaling Calendar

I am up on the Jillibean Soup Blog today with this Perpetual Calendar.  I upcycled a recipe card box with the Cold Avocado Soup collection.  I have an index card for each day of the year.  The idea is to jot down a quick note for each day.  After a few years this will be a great keepsake.  I didn't divide by month, I just decided as I wrote a note on each card, I would move it to the back.

As a side note, I dug out my Christmas Card List - an address book where I have kept track of Christmas cards I sent and received over the years.  I showed it to Danica, I started it in 1993!  The book is 20 years old! Many addresses scratched off and changed over the years - how fun.

Now be sure to head on over to the Jillibean Soup Blog to see the other projects from the Designers, there is some great inspiration up today!
