I got all the base supplies from Tall Mouse when I was on April's Birthday Shop Hop earlier last month. The base supplies came in a kit with a frame, calendar transparency, and a sheet of metal for about $20. I also got some mini dry erase markers for writing on the transparency. Each entry is color-coded for each person so we all know who is going to be where and when. I also added the dinner menu to days when I know what I am going to cook so Xaver kows what to expect and not to eat the same thing for lunch.
I decorated the metal sheet with some scrap paper then laid the transparency on top and put it in the frame. I stapled May Arts ribbon to the frame with a staple gun and tied the two pieces in a bow to make a hanger. Xaver put a decorative hook in the wall in the hallway for me to hang it on.
I made a sign for each month using more scrap paper from my stash and some loose embellies. I put a couple magnets on the back of each sign so it will stick to the top part of the calendar. Then I put an envelope on the back of the frame to hold the months I am not using.
