Journelling Calendar

This week I am *officially* on maternity leave (39 weeks, 3 days and counting!), so I'll be re-posting a couple of DIYs from my archives. I also have a HUGE giveaway coming up soon, make sure you check back for that tomorrow!

Side note - today is the day my c-section was booked for. If I hadn't decided to try for a vbac and cancelled it, I would well and truly have my little baby in my arms by now. To be honest I wasn't sure how I would feel today, but I'm doing ok. As much as I am desperate to meet the little guy, I know that he will arrive when the time is right.

Onto the DIY! I'm sharing this one because now is the perfect time to start planning for next year. I've loved using my journelling calendar this year and am thinking I might make a few for my family as Christmas gifts.

A while back I was inspired by this calendar journal that I spotted on Design Sponge. You've probably seen it before too, it's been round the blogosphere a few times over. Anyway, I pinned it to my 'must DIY this' board and then promptly forgot about it.



I was reminded of it a couple of weeks ago when Laura blogged about the version she made.



Gorgeous huh!!

I finally got my butt into gear on the weekend and made myself one too.




Now all I need to do is remember to write something down each day :)

  2. This is a fab idea. I'd pinned this one too. I'm not sure how long I would stick with it though. Perhaps I should challenge myself!
    Hugs your way xo

  3. Love this idea! I used to write the children's milestones on a wall calendar for a while - this is another nice, easy way to record the little things x
