Soul Knocking Challenge: CALENDAR!!

With 2009 rapidly approaching i thought i'd volunteer a new creative challenge... construct your own CALENDAR!

A friend of mine gives another friend a homemade calendar each year as a christmas present. Last year she made a collage calendar and bound the pages together with old shower-curtain rings. Gorgeous way to mark the time over the year and a fabulous gift! I thought we might get in on the action. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination...use cloth instead of paper, make your calendar on one big sheet of paper, make a tiny purse-size calendar, use different pages for each month, or maybe divide your dates by some other system. There's lots of resources and templates on the net, so it can take as much or as little time as you like :)

i'm giving us 2 and a 1/2 months to construct our calendars, so they're ready to start using in the new year... 1st Jan 2009.

i can't wait to see your creations!!

Fantastic idea! Already starting to get some plans together!
Is the idea that we each send one onto another Soul Knocker?...

ooh, i hadn't thought of that for this one. depends on if everyone thinks they can get it ready for 1st jan. historically we've all taken a little longer than anticipated on our SK challenges. it doesn't matter for our other challenges, but getting a calendar later than jan means you get less fun out of it. i'm happy to aim for the deadline and do the big swap, but what do you all think? ^_^ x shell

maybe take me out of it? realistically i don't think i'll have the time - moving house next month, family over from canada in early december, going away for xmas and new years...
i am kinda on hiatus anyways except for my seldom opportunities for creativity. i aim to be back on track mid january.
and i still haven't done our first challenge - the puzzle! i will do it, i promise!
