Thirty days hath September

Have you ever noticed how expensive some dry-erase perpetual calendars are?
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.  ;) 
IMAGE - Blank Calendar - SOLIDS
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.  :)

*** UPDATED 06/26/12 ***
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:
I'm honored to have had this project featured on these sites. Thanks so much!!

What a great idea! I hadn't thought of having Costco print out the calander. I had seen the ones in the frames, and love them!

Who wouldn't love this? Thanks!!

Kristina said...

oooh! I like this so much! Plus I have the big handwriting problem-lol! I'm thinking of printing two, putting them back to back and laminating them! Then I can have two months going simultaneously AND I can stick it on my fridge! FUN!
THanks for this idea!

I have been meaning to make a dry erase calendar for quite a white. In fact, I actually was thinking about it as I browsed blogs, and then I happened to stumble upon a link to this post from http://funtocraft.blogspot.com Thanks for sharing!

This is awesome! What a great gift this would make for teachers, etc. Thanks for linking up to Beyond the Picket Fence's Under $100 Linky Party

That's awesome, I've seen frames turned into dry erase boards but they usually involve a time consuming process. I know I'd have trouble lining things up so evenly. I LOVE this, so handy and a quick way to add some pretty color to your room. I could even personalize it a bit with some scrapbook rub-ons if I wanted. Thank you for joining us at A Crafty Soiree! I hope you'll come back next week and link up again!

PS: How do you get your link list to display in columns so nicely? Now THAT is something I'd love to know.

How cool. Thank you for this. I wanted something where I can write my exercise schedule and this is perfect. The colors are so fun too. No more boring black and white.

Hi there - not sure if you still get messages but I tried to download these and it gave me an error saying these weren't available anymore. I'd love to get copies if you have them so I don't have to recreate it all ;-)

My email is spotsaccount AT yahoo DOT com

Thank you!

Cara Harpin said...

I tried to download them and got an error message as well. :(

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this. I found you via A Diamond in the Stuff via Pinterest and your printable has made my LIFE!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!

(I blogged about it/linked to you here: http://www.theclutteredhouse.com/2012/11/a-pinterest-y-kind-of-weekend.html)

This is GREAT!!! My mom actually wanted to buy the one from Pottery Barn for me for Christmas and I wouldn't let her spend so much on something I knew I could create for much cheaper. I just stumbled upon this (thanks Pinterest!) and it couldn't be more perfect! Before I print and buy a frame though, I wanted to know if these were infact popular enough for you to make larger with printed backgrounds? I didn't see them anywhere, but wanted to ask just in case. Thank you so much!
