12.31.2012 ... calendar box


this is our version of
a 10 year calendar box.


ev made the box.
he also cut and 
date stamped every card.


scout decorated the month cards.



and special day cards.


i chose the month cards
from a vintage pack i found.


we decided to use 
a mixed color index card
palette.


this box we made
for jon cody, val & sammy baer
for Christmas.


today we are 
making our own.
ev is stamping dates as i type.

to use this memory box
you simply write the year 2013
on the first line each day.
next to it jot a phrase
about something that happened,
you created, you made for dinner,
you did for the first time...
{you get the idea}
on that day.

make it a habit.
it's easy.  really.

each year repeat this.
in 10 years you will
have a miniature
calendar journal
all in one small box.

so what are you waiting for?
you still have time to make yours.
if you need a box, you can
substitute a small fruit
box - like blueberries
and raspberries come in.

let me know 
how yours turns out.

thanks for stopping by.   
until next time. 
 happiness to you. 
from me. 
with heart.
