i love calendars. and planners. and notebooks. pretty much anything or anywhere i can write down goings on, make lists, take notes, and generally have somewhere where i can cross things off a list. (those type-a peeps out there know exactly what i’m talking about!)
little mr. re-nest #1 started pre-school this week (eek!), which meant two weeks ago, we went to orientation night where we got, you guessed it, a calendar of all of the school happenings for the month of september. and all of a sudden a lightbulb went off: “we have a field trip when?” “wait, when do swim lessons start?” “when is my hair appointment?” we needed a family-centric calendar to keep everything in one place…like stat. between the swim lessons and doctor’s appointments and picture day and mr. re-nest’s weekly evening conference calls, i needed one place to keep it all. enter one of my favorite, favorite, favorite calendars of all time:

i’ve featured this calendar before. like every holiday for the past two years. i have one of these on my desk at work. and now i have seventeen months worth of glorious empty calendar space to fill up at home. heaven.
this isn’t the only amazing calendar that paper source has….actually many of their calendars are gorgeous pieces of art, with very lovely illustrations and images and photographs. we’re talking stuff gorgeous enough to put in a frame after its time to change your calendar over to the next month.
so, given my fascination with calendars and especially ones from paper source, you can imagine my excitement when i found a behind-the-scenes look at how the design team at paper source developed the lovely 2014 calendars. there’s little i love (and appreciate) more in the crafty world than getting the inside view of the hows and whys of design. i hope you love seeing this unique little view into one of my very favorite organizational tools!
tell us: how do you keep your family organized? do you have a family calendar?
