Well, it's been some time since Tech Corner made its latest contribution to the technical universe, but we're excited to be back. And today we'll be talking about creating your own, customized desktop calendar. Okay, some materials you'll need to get started are a ruler, a pen and a sheet of paper - any color you like, but lighter colors are usually better.
Place the paper on a hard, flat surface (a table is ideal, but if a table is not available then some sort of hard, flat surface should work.) Take out your ruler and lay it strait on the paper. Begin by drawing a big square on your paper - Now, remember to utilize the straightness of your ruler. After you have created a square, make anywhere from 28 to 31 smaller squares inside of the big square, remembering that they should be arranged in rows of 7...( * I'll explain later).
* The rows of 7 squares represent weeks, with each individual square corresponding to a day.
Begin to number your squares in sequential order. Be sure to begin with 1, not 0. If you begin with 0 you will have messed up. I recommend, from experience, that you practice on a sheet of scratching paper before you commit with ink to your calendar grid.
By now you should have a pretty comely calendar in your hands...But that's not all. Here's where the real magic show begins. You can go absolutely crazy with decorating your calendar how ever you want. Anything from clipping and pasting magazine pictures, adding glitter or sequins, cotton balls, pipe cleaners, pasta...Just about anything you want!! And, for a splash of color, be sure to color your calendar.
In the past, calendar creation was left to the so-called "professionals", but with technology today, heck...just about any dummy can make a calendar. I did :)
Thanks for checking in, and remember - the more you understand, the smarter you are.
