Rolodex birthdays

I am here, I am here, I am here {can you hear the chant from 'Horton Hears a Who' when the "Who's" are trying to be heard on the speck!} I can't believe how much time has passed since I last posted anything! I am just being way too busy with responsible things...I need to be a better blogger! :) This last week was spring break for my kids so I was busy playing the part of entertainer for the week. I think we will finally be getting back to our normal routine and hopefully that will include some major stamping time for me!
Remember way back in this post when I labeled it sneak peek and then didn't follow up! I know it's embarrassingly late but that's about my life these days! So here is what I made. For a really long time I have wanted a better way to remember birthdays. The books and calendars just weren't cuttin' it for me! So I decided to make my own rolodex. I love this idea for 2 reasons...one because I thought of it all on my own. After making it I have seen that others thought of it too but I am proud to say before I went searching and saw anyone else's work I thought this one up in my very own head!!! :) The second reason is cuz it is soooo handy for me. I can slip new names in there without having to squeeze it in on a calendar or do any crossing out or erasing!! I keep it out on my stamp table so that it is accessible and I can check it at the beginning of every month and know what I need! I found the super cute paper at Joann's and just cut out some of the cute images for each month. I kept this simple cuz I knew it would get a lot of use with me flipping through. I also found a super cool rolodex punch at Office Max!
I hope that you have had a fantastic weekend and have a great start to your week!

OMGosh! This is too cute! You did a super fantastic job on this. I love the fact that as you said, you can easily slip in new names without having to rearrange your whole calendar. I'm going to bookmark this and make one myself.
