Desk Top Calendar/Post It Holder

Today's project is one I made for my youngest daughter, who has just started on a new career path. She has been hired as an intern for Ernst and Young while she finishes her last year and a half of college!
We are so proud of her and I wanted to make something that she could have with her at work and remind her of me :)

This is a combination calendar/post it holder and I included a spot for a picture

I used an acrylic stand up frame that I got at The Christmas Tree Shop. The calendar section I made in Excel - email me for the file if you are interested :)
The pattern paper is from my stash... sorry I don't know the company. The brown paper is Stampin Up - Early Espresso. The felt flowers and leaves are Stampin Up. And the brads and bling are from my stash.

I hope you enjoyed this project - I Loved making it !!

Thanks for stopping by!

ps... I went to Hobby Lobby for the first time yesterday!! OMG... It's an amazing place...


  1. Mindy, you are toast now that you went to H/L...I'm telling ya, you won't be able to stay away! LOL
    I would love the file for the calender. How did you get it all to stick to frame? Super hold glue, adhesive? Thanks for a great inspirational project. I wanna make it! :)
