I am one of those people that uses a paper book bound day planner where I hand write in my appointments and lists. It seems kind of old fashioned in today's world, but when I have tried to keep things listed in my phone, they seem to get lost or magically deleted. So, until they become obsolete, I'll stick with my handy colored pens and paper calendar system of organization.
I decided to customize this plain pink calendar I picked up for 2010. I loved the abstract, oversized acrylic painting that I completed before the holidays and shared here, so I painted a less refined, mini version on the front of my calendar using acrylic paints and a matte varnish.
