A New Month

There is something about the 1st of each month that is exciting to me. It's kind of like a mini- New Year's Day. Its a time to start fresh, to flip the picture on my calendar, to change the background on my computer...and cell phone. Does that make me weird? Quite possibly. And what's even weirder, I go in order of the list of manufactured backgrounds on the computer and cell phone. Its kind of like a challenge to see if I can use them all through out the months. I haven't accomplished this yet. Its the first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning on the 1st. .... Hopefully I haven't scared you off by now...

So, assuming that you're still reading, now comes the fun part. After stumbling upon this idea from a very crafty lady, I have a new tradition this year of making a "plaque" for each month. This is the one I made for March:

And the good news is... you can make one yourself with this fantastic tutorial from Suzanne at Just Another Hang Up. She makes the template with wording and she will e-mail it to you free of charge! Very generous. They are very simple to make....I'm not a complicated project kind of girl. If I can do it, you can do it. Its pretty addictive to tell you the truth. Everytime I finish one, I am already thinking of how I want to design next month's plaque.

Here are the one's I've made so far for January and February:

Now keep in mind- I did not make up the words that are on the plaques, I just bought the materials and picked the color scheme that I wanted to go along with it. So- these are mine & they happily grace my bedside table.

Go make one for yourself!

Happy 1st of the month!

  1. You are so cute. I have weird quirks like these too and also love the first day of every month! Especially March because February always seems to be such a grueling month. I hope your March is wonderful! Would love to see you at Savannah Power Yoga . . .
