I’m currently on a de-cluttering, organizing, simplifying, redecorating kick around my house… and figured I could create my own dry-erase perpetual calendar using the idea of picture frames, as I’ve done before.
A perpetual calendar means I wouldn’t need to find a new paper calendar year after year… a dry-erase calendar means it'll be a lot easier to shift around appointments/activities as I often have to do.
So, I thought I’d turn my little project into creating another free printable. (See other freebies here.)
This particular calendar, isn’t huge – only 11”x14”, but it can still give you a general layout of your upcoming month’s activities, important dates, etc. Placed behind a sheet of glass, it’s a format for your very own dry-erase perpetual calendar… at a fraction of the cost of similar calendars out there.
I’ve kept the colors light, so that your dry-erase markers will still show against the background… in case your handwriting is big, like mine. ;)
To download the file(s) of your choice, click on the image above and you’ll be directed to their 4shared locations. (I’ve also included a compressed file which includes all of the color choices.) Then, just upload to your favorite online photo printer (Costco only charges $2.99 per print of this size!), put it inside an 11”x14” frame, and hang your framed piece on the wall. Now you’ve got an inexpensive, dry-erase perpetual calendar for your home or office. :)

New download location for these images is here.
(If these are popular, I have plans to upload more with patterned backgrounds, and possibly create larger calendar images – I’ll keep ‘ya posted.)
I hope this simple calendar helps to keep you a little more organized and brightens up your space!
I’ll be posting this project to some of the link-up parties listed here:
