AlphabeThursday - W is for Week

March 2012
I remember as a child, the weeks in school seemed to go by so slowly.  We used to count the days, speak them aloud, and learn to spell their long names.  I still count the weeks, but in a different way.

January 2012

Now I make my own calendars, and the boxes across the page are not always seven in a row!  When I started my new art journal for 2012, the month of January fit on one page, and the days of the week descends down and not across.  What would Ms. Jenny think!?

Some calendars begin with Monday on the left-hand side.  If you schedule your blog posts using Blogger, you'll notice their calendar begins like that.  I just hate that - it gets me all confused!     

February 2012
If they can mixed up their week, so can I!

April 2012
Using calendars as art is a great way of getting into your journal every day.  Maybe next month, I’ll mixed up my days within the month itself.  Now that will be something completely different.  Stay tuned!  

Don't miss out visiting the other sites this WEEK, beginning with the Letter W.  You can find a large list on Ms. Jenny's site, ...off on my tangent...  Come visit our classroom!

My weekly calendar is so weak compared to yours♫♪

I'm glad that I'm not the only one that's bothered by the new Monday at the beginning of the week format on Blogger. With Jake's crazy schedule, I have a hard enough time keeping track of the days as it is.

Your calendar is a lot of fun! I love that you make it any way that you want.

This is such a fun way to keep a journal :) And I love how each month is different in design.

Love it!

The calenders in Holland always go from top to bottom! And I like that a calender starts on the left, mainly because I'm left handed. But your calenders are witty and colorful! I could imagine people buying them - ever thought about it?

I loved your calendar the first time you showed January and I still think it's so cool! I really need to do this sometime as it looks like a fun way to remember the days!

Mixing up the days sounds like fun! My memory mixes them up anyway.
