Poster Calendar

Yes, this morning I changed out of my sweats to take this pic. Not sure why since my pjs were polka dots as well and much more comfy.
You also should know that I am moving my office… again. To a different room in our house… again. But I’m excited to redo and refresh everything. Including purging supplies, simplifying and decorating. That’s why I made this calendar for myself… it’s a reward for my hard work and something cool to hang in my new space. I had it printed at Costco onto 16×20 photo paper and also as an 8×10 for Collin’s office. There are other designs that are available and an even larger size-20×30. I wanted to try this out first and see how I liked it. And I love it.
Santas’s elves have already gotten busy making calendars for Christmas presents!
Such smart, little guys.

    This is fantastic. I think I have a thing for calendars!! Can you share the directions? And I agree with Ann Marie – purging?? Could also be called “sharing” with readers?

    I adore this calendar and bought the digital download template. I’m new to using Photoshop and downloaded the trial. I opened the 16×20 calendar template and don’t know how to place photos in the gray boxes. Sad, I know 🙂 Can you give me a quick tutorial? Thanks for your time!

    Really great idea. Need to give Costco another try. Last time I printed photos there I said I’d never do it again. Dark and weird and fuzzy, not crisp and bright at all. You don’t have that problem with them? Or do you edit all your photos in Photoshop first to get them brighter and lighter?

    okay, so i basically have the same question as jessica.
    I ordered a calendar and when i opened it up in photoshop i expected to be able to just drop the pictures into the gray square boxes….is that not right?

    any quick tips you can give me?
    thanks so much!
