make or WIN a perpetual calendar

You are all probably thinking that we are well into the new year and that the time for giving out calendars as gifts has long passed no matter how cool they may look.
Not so, I say. I have recently discovered perpetual calendars... the type that never end, or at least the type you don't have to throw out (or recycle) at the end of the year. For those of you who have no idea what they are or how they tick they simply are a set of months and dates that you change daily to reflect the date. If you take a look at the pic below you will see how they work with this perpetual block calendar set made by Wayne. It has been crafted from wood and then decorated.

Wayne makes these cool little wooden sets (amongst a million other things) that he sells from his Etsy store. But he is all for sharing the love and so he has ever so graciously written us this perpetual calendar tutorial which you can find at scrapbook-crazy.com. Covered in scrapbook papers these little beauties look great. You can totally coordinate them to match the decor in your home or office. I have one in the post on it's way to me right now, so i will show you it when it is all spruced up.

So who wants to win one of these naked calendar kits?
Do you want to cover this little calendar in pretty scrapbook papers for your desk, or home. Wayne is giving away a perpetual calendar kit to one lucky reader. All you will need to do to enter is to leave a comment on this post before 18 Feb. If you want to be entered five times then link to this scrapbook calendar give-away post from a post on your blog or other scrappy site (just tell me you if you are due 5 entries in the comments and leave a link to the post )

My dd will be picking a winner out of a hat when all the entries are in.

I love this little calendar! I've never seen one like it before and it's just perfect for a small workspace. I'd love to win one of the kits 'cause I don't have a big strong man at home to cut one out for me, and, I don't have any more power tools since my roommate took them all when she moved away!!

Mommyhood is Thankless said...

I really am not fond of having random calenders hanging on my wall. This would be great to have!

Jamie said...

This is such a neat idea! I love the idea of being able to reuse this calendar over and over. My kids would love it as well. My oldest, who is in Kindergarden loves to cross off the days on the calendar and is working on learning days of the week, months, etc. in school, so I know he would love this. And I love the idea of being able to decorate it any way you want. These would make good teacher presents as well.

What a great idea. No more having to buy a new desk calendar every year -- and they're nice looking, too. Looks like a great way to use up some scraps. Thanks to Wayne, too, for offering it.
