I have been thinking for 3-4 years now of creating a calendar, and connecting it to Homeschooling. It is a big job! A lot of detail work. I discarded that idea as too time intensive.
I use a calendar currently that is a monthly one and enter the big picture in this, appointments, deadlines, birthdays, anniversaries etc. Then I have a side by side calendar that is monthly. On this I can write more detail, like my call list for the day or project ideas into the future and then flesh them out on those days. The one I have had in the past was pretty dry. Not enough room to write down ideas and explore where God has been in my life during the week.
I found a nice calendar at Walgreen. (It was on sale as some of the months have passed by.) It is published by Laura Kelly Design's & Licensing. The one I bought was 'Mom's Busy Year. It is a 17 month planner, August 2017- December 2018. It is a bit too cutie for my taste, but I can see that others might like it really well. It is aimed at young mothers with growing families, and here I am an old grandmother, but I really like the format.
It has cute stickers (Not sure what I will do with these) and a big picture of the year in a two page format so I can mark ongoing activities and see where the dates fall for the whole year, (I like that!) Some of the headers aren't pertinent to my life, but I could print on my computer some headers on label paper and cover the current ones to make me happier that the header applies to my needs. On the calendar proper are tear off side panels, one with a grocery list and weekly menu on one side, the other a to do list for the week + activities; I like the idea of the tear off side panels. I could see if I weren't organized differently already in terms of grocery lists, I could use that, but I don't think I will. (In tearing off one is tearing of the next week's 'to do this week'.) Then at the end of the days of the week is a section called notes. I particularly love the notes section, that is why I bolded it.
Re Notes Section: I see God working in my life continual. He often starts a thread that is enlarged during the week, so that it expands to one or two different and amazing ideas, opening my eyes in a way that I hadn't seen before. I really like to have a weekly record of these "inner conversations". I use the notes section for that.
I would like incorporated into this book the bible readings for the week, and the saints on each of the days. I could copy that from other sources into my calendar, but it occurs to me that I could print the online Greek Orthodox Calendar for the month and with a glue stick just add that little cube to each day of my calendar so I would have it for the month. Or copy and print it on sticker paper and insert it that way. Good Thought! Glad we are talking about this! Here is that at website: https://www.goarch.org/chapel/calendar. I like knowing when the saints days are, plus the fasting days and Feast Days of the Church.
I have added images as I go, (my own stickers in essence) because I like the image and it conveys something to me or is about an unformed idea. You might consider that too.
I also was just looking into scrap booking companies that make journaling components to assemble yourself. A few of them are 'Happy Planner' and 'Bloom Where you Are'. In this range there are specifically some that are geared for teachers, some for students, as well as standard calendars. You can find these in an Amazon search. Also available are Journaling Bibles. This seems like a format to illustrate verses, but maybe rather illustrating on your own paper, so that it can be used as a piece to be hung, or as a gift? My opinion.
If you have come up with some good ideas in these areas please share it in the comments section. Thanks!
