Take life one month at a time.
As a blogger, I love planning my posts well in advance. Having a calendar right on my desk helps me stay organized, but I'm not overwhelmed just looking at one month at a time.

This dry-erase calendar project is also great because there's no buying a new calendar every year, or printing a new page every month. You make the page once, and use it again and again. The best part? You probably have most of the materials at home: a piece of paper, some paint, and an old picture frame.

If you don't have a round sponge brush, try a wine cork! I did this once and it turned out great.
