As we near the end of the year I find myself with a stack of calendar pages that I just can’t bear to throw away. I confess I have a Baxter & Jackson calendar in almost every room. Here are some of my favorite things to do with them when the calendar is no longer relevant.
- Recipe Cards – I have a million recipes bookmarked on my ipad, but my go to recipes are on paper.
- Gift Tags – I make them in all different shapes and sizes. Above I used a round paper punch.
- Place cards – Boy, girl, boy, girl and no spouses next to one another. This rarely works unless I plan it out in advance and assign seats.
- Bookmarks – I love a nice thick paper for this, that way when it is buried deep in my book I can easily find it.
I should have a preview of some of the art for the 2018 calendar soon! I have been painting away.
