Like last year, my co-workers received a calendar from me as a holiday gift. I tackled the design this year instead of buying from Etsy, since I took both an Adobe class and inherited a MacBook in 2009.

It’s a pretty simple design, using two types of Rockwell font. I downloaded the Sketch Rockwell for free online. It added visual interest with no additional labor on my part.

Four months were printed on each page . . .

. . . then cut into fourths.

Since most people were receiving their second Pretty Little Mess calendar this year, I didn’t have to make as many covered bull clips. I made the necessary few using some scraps (literally scraps, you know how I do it) of Martha Stewart Crafts paper that was in my stash.

Look how the sketch hash marks match?

The final product.
