An oversized weekly wall calendar that makes it easy to keep track of meals, appointments and activities.
Keeping my style and sanity once school started.
Clean, fun and colorful.
Between 3 kids starting school,1 in preschool, two playing soccer and one playing football, our google calendar is filling up. Even when we keep it updated I still find away to forget things. Like Poppy’s well child visit we barely made it to earlier this week. I started thinking that maybe I need a weekly calendar that stands out, catches my eye and looks perty. Something I’ll see when walking into the living area of our home instead of staring at my phone or computer.
So I decided to turn our days of the week print into a weekly calendar by ordering it as a 16×20 metal wall art via tiny prints and then used washi tape (mostly from Target) and a sharpie to write down appointments, outings, practices, games and our dinner menu.
A framed version would work just as well and be less expensive but I wanted to try something a bit more durable and different. Especially since it is hanging where sticky kid hands can get to it.
It’s been so handy and earned several compliments in it’s short existence. Even the kids (and husband!) can take a peek and see what we have going on that day or what we’ll be eating.
Like any good thing, one is just not enough so I ended up ordering a 10×14 inch metal print of the multi-color version to use in my office. Can’t wait for it to arrive!

My favorite item from this project is all the fun washi tape.
Go for it! There is no right or wrong way to do it!
