I can still remember when I was in grade four my teacher standing up the front of our class exclaiming with disbelief, “I just can’t believe it’s 1994!” I think of that moment every new years. It doesn’t inspire at all. Especially this year as I realise that was 20 years… I just had to pause to take that in… that was 20 years ago!!
Just incase your life wasn’t full of enough lists (like mine), I’m offering another one
A printable monthly desktop calendar with space to write to-dos or goals for that month.
You goals could include a new year resolution. Perhaps you want to keep it vague like; try a new recipe, or send snail mail. For me, it’s going to be quite specific. June will be singled down to one goal: give birth and keep the baby alive. Yep, ma belly’s got a baby! So the month before will be pack hospital bag, for example.
Goals not your thing? Then write a lovely quote in the space provided to turn this calendar into a motivational calendar. Or perhaps write birthdays you want to remember for that month. Multi-purpose. Love it.
I’m not into new years resolutions, but with my first baby on the way, it does feel like this will be a year full of a kind of life I’ve never experienced – the anticipation and excitement is a nice change in rhythm.

- Cutting out the calendar is pretty self explanatory, so I won’t insult your intelligence. But I will just mention using a guillotine or craft knife and metal ruler beats scissors any day.
- To stand the calendar up, I folded a thick piece of cardboard in half, the two halves being the same size as a calendar page. To attach the calendar, you can see I used tiny wooden pegs, but you can get crafty with ribbon, or just be plain practical and staple the pages together.
- You could also attach these to string to make some sort of calendar garland or bunting to and see as a timeline of sorts.
- A4 or Letter? I made it for A4 borderless printing. So unless you have A4 borderless printing, regardless of whether you’re printing on letter or A4, just scale to fit, print and cut.
I’d love to hear what you have planned for this year.
