The poll isn’t closed yet, but I have a hellish week ahead so I thought I would get a jump on the design. Let me start there:
That is sort of where I am – Sweetheart Script was the frontrunner by a mile. I can’t decide on the position of the flourish, or if I need it at all. I guess I am leaning towards the bottom flourish, so it doesn’t affect the readability of the days. Any thoughts?
Now, as you know I’ve done foreign language calendars for a few years. I made a German one the other day, because a long time follower asked for the blank, decorate it yourself version in German for a project she has in mind. She vetted them for me so I feel most confident about them being right. Grab the German calendar here.
She also gave me the words for the journaling blocks.
I also have a French version out to someone who will, I hope, be able to do the same. I’ll add them when I hear back, and if I don’t, then I’ll omit the journaling cards and post them that way.
I don’t have a connection with a Spanish speaker, so I omitted the journaling cards for these from the beginning. But I did do both a MONDAY to SUNDAY version, as that is more common for Spanish, as well as a Sunday to Saturday version, as I know many people use a Spanish calendar but follow the arrangement most common in their country – the USA is usually Sun to Sat and I think someone from Puerto Rico also mentioned they use Sun to Sat as well
I did have a moment when I saw AUGUSTO instead of AGOSTO on one online calendar! Gave me no end of worry, but while AUGUSTO is a word in Spanish, near as I can find it’s translated as august, as in an august institution . The month August is Agosto.
And apparently the calendar I saw that had MARCHA instead of Marzo is wrong too. Sorted it and added the new PDFs. I did SAY it was stressful …
Honestly – the stress of trying to get all the elements right for a foreign language calendar is huge. If you see an error, do let me know. It’s cringe-inducing to make an error, but the sooner I know the sooner I can fix it.
