Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. I’m sorry for not posting yesterday, but the hubby and I decided to head out to check out the Black Friday specials at some of the stores. I was busy finishing up the printables for today though, and I got a jump-start on ones for tomorrow. Oh yes, this year I’m offering, not one… not two… not three… but FOUR dated 2014 calendars. To those who have emailed asking if I’ll be making new blank calendars, I most definitely will be making 4 of them. They will come out next week sometime. I wanted to get the dated calendars out first, and I’m also working on the new Printable of the Month, which will be posted here on Monday! On to the good stuff! I’m continuing on with the half-size planner pages today.
On Thursday I shared the half-size, one month per page calendar. Today I’ve got a two page per month option for you. I love the half-size for its portability, but what I don’t like is the lack of writing space you get when you shrink things. So while a month per page is great, two pages gives you just that little bit more writing room. I was even able to include a whole column just for notes. If you look closely at the picture you’ll see that the 2014 on the pages is not lined up with the right hand margin. I did this for a couple of reasons:
- Sometimes a list needs a title. Leaving the top margin bare allows room to title the notes or list.
- Sometimes I like to use the notes section for a grocery list, but I don’t want to have pull out my planner while I’m in the store. I can simply fold, crease, and tear the list part off, but the 2014 is still intact. (Or cut it with scissors, but I don’t often have a pair of those on me)]
- Some people keep their calendars for scrap booking, or as keep-sake of their year, if you do like me and remove the list part, you still have the whole month including year. It looks nicer.
- Someone mentioned to me that they really liked using the notes section as a sort of page marker. Each month they fold over the notes column and it marks the month pages, instead of using dividers. Basically, it was for aesthetic reasons.
I can’t wait to get mine printed out and put into my planner. There is something about getting a new planner set up that just makes me smile. I think it’s because a new, empty planner signifies so many possibilities, or maybe I’m just weird. As always, to get a copy of your own, simply click the picture above. Like the last two, the whole year is one PDF file. If you would like individual months, shoot me an email and I’ll gladly hook you up with the individuals.
I hope you’ll stop back tomorrow afternoon for the final installment of the 2014 Calendars. Also, don’t forget, tomorrow, December 1st, at 11:59pm this month’s printable will no longer be available. Check back on Monday for the new one!
For now, I’m off to pull out all the Christmas decorations, and make sure I can find all my Christmas music, because tomorrow is that start of Deck the Halls madness in my house. I can’t wait! Until tomorrow folks, happy weekend!
So, tell me what you think of the calendars so far? Anything I should change up? And what about the colors? Yes, no, too many?
