Years ago I made my dad a perpetual calendar; before I knew what that was, before you could buy them in a stationery store. It was a simple document, created with a word processor. I learned while visiting him last that he still has it -- tattered and folded, falling apart, outdated since the birth of grandchildren and the death of a few marriages.
I've been trying to find a creative use for my photos, and I think I'm on to something.
I'm working on a generic template that will allow me to switch pictures and add personalized birth dates. I took the .pdf file to the local copy shop, and they printed, cut, and bound it for me. I've seen DIY binding kits at the craft store, so next time I might just get them to print it and do the rest myself.
Craft project success! And just in time to start thinking about holiday gifts.
