This week I pulled out all manner of scraps and bits of papers and cards and quirky handmade labels (from sister) and old calendars and wrapping paper (from Pam) and anything I looked at that I liked. That could be cut.
There was lots of stuff.
I advise you not to think too much about it or you could get caught in a protracted planning phase. Like I was.
The base for my planner/calendar is a 4 x 5 1/2 heavy paper thing I bought at Paper Source. This format worked out so well in 2016 that I saw no reason not to repeat it.
There is not much that can not be made better by a good hour or so of cutting and pasting and taping.
I printed out some photos of 2016 adventures to include.
At the very last minute I remembered some of Lisa Hoffman's stickers and that also made me think to pull out some old rubber stamps.
Before you know it, I was done. Cut, paste, stamp, cut, tape, move, tape some more.
Which just goes to show you that I can flat out finish something, if I put my mind to it.
