Yarn-y June!

I've been thinking about making a printable calendar for the blog for a while now and no time like the present to jump on that one! So behold - a very yarn-y june:

you can download me here!
Hooray! I had so much fun creating this month's calendar using some sweet design software called My Memories. It ended up being the perfect program to use because it is super user friendly, has loads of fun options (and templates if you aren't feeling creative), and is ridiculously more inexpensive than photoshop (triple win)! 

I'm a huge fan of having a calendar around and find them super handy for planning my week. I particularly like having one on my desk where I do most of my blogging and organizing and came up with a handy way to have my printable one stand up - all you need is a CD jewel-case! Sounds great! Take a look at how it's done:

As easy as that! Print out the calendar, grab an unused CD case, then open, invert, and slip in the paper! Voila! Check out the finished piece:

Yeah! The perfect angle for ideal calendar viewing purposes and a new purpose for my pile of completely useless cd cases! Next you just have to decide optimal placement. Here's a few options I've tried out:

I certainly hope you're as excited about this calendar as I am and have even started a scientific culture flickr group so you can upload any projects (or in this case calendar making) to share (link)! Yay!  Where will you put your yarn-y June printable?
