A Muse Calendar - maybe now I won't forget

Do you remember this calendar that Linda (the A Muse guru!) created. It is still for sale and the proceeds benefit Scleroderma Research.

I decided that what I needed is a perpetual calendar. Well, sorta. Not exactly really. I do need one that lists peoples special dates but I also need one that is a normal calendar to reference when a particular date is. And well, having them together would be ideal. For example, knowing my dad's birthday is on Jan 7th is great but not knowing what day of the week Jan 7th isn't.
So, I didn't to put the two together using Linda's calendar. I also, decided I need it to be IN-MY-FACE, er, I mean right on my desk, next to the stamps, return address labels, labels of people I send to, and well, the box of cards I have made. See, no excuses now.

Here's what I came up with. It's a little table top calendar that I put together with my Bind-it_all. It uses the A Muse notecards as the base layer for each month. You flip over the cover and there is January. Then you turn January over and February is on the back side of January, so you move the calendar around. Make sense (see picture on left)?

Each month has a different theme:

Images: all A Muse
Card stock: all A Muse except strip on covers which is some scrapbook paper I had
Accessories: Bind-it-all, chipboard, spica glitter pens, colorbox inks, markers, glaze pens, sakura glitter pen
