I love creating personal things and I love keeping track of birthdays, anniversarys, holidays etc. Thats why when I found this program I was so excited.
This is a software program from digilabs where you create your own calendar. It allows you to pick from 14 different styles, you can create all different sizes of calendars too 12 x 18, 11 x 17 (center fold) single months or even desktop calendars to sit on your desk. You can add your own pictures and create all the dates that you want to keep track of. It also lets you pick the holidays you want to show on your calendar, examples US, Canada, Christian, Polish, Irish, Russian etc.
I will admit that the first time you use this program it is a little time consuming putting in all the dates that you want to keep track of but it is worth it. Once those dates are in, you never have to worry about them again.
The squares aren't very large but I find there is enough room to put those Docter appointments and things that come up that I need to keep track of.
The first calendar I did was of our entire family. Each month was dedicated to one member of the family. I gave each one in my family this calendar for Christmas. Everyone loved the idea of having all the birthdays, anniversary's right there so they could keep track of it. This year everyone asked me if I would do it again, so I just went in changed the year (it automatically changes all the days) and changed pictures.
You can download the software for free if you are going to use digilabs to print your calendars. I chose to buy the program and print them myself. Now I had to print 10 calendars so I am not sure if it might have been cheaper to have them print it, but I enjoy doing this and didn't have any problem printing it. I liked the idea I could pick the kind of paper I wanted.
This is a great idea for keeping all those dates in order especially as your family grows.
