2016 Quote Circle calendar

4 Comments

Bizarrely, one strip seems to have dropped of of the pdf.  I need to re-upload but can’t do it now.  I’ll re add the link as soon as I remake the PDFs.  See the next post for an explanation.

Well, I have done a ton of 2016 calendars already but I did have a request for a 2015 one that I had NOT updated.  I hate to disappoint so I’ve done it.

The original 2015 set looked like this – a standard CD calendar-size

and the quotes are:

Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and
resign yourself to the influences of each.

How do you measure a year? Measure, measure your life in love   Share love, give love, spread love …

Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of

Time, by moments, steals away, First the hour, and then the day;
Small the daily loss appears, Yet it soon amounts to years

Live in the present. Do the things that need to be done. Do all the good you can each day. The future will unfold.

The hours pass and the days and the months and the years, and the past time never returns.

We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment of life is a miracle and mystery

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes  …  How do you measure, measure a year?

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time…

…today, well lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a dream of hope.

I went ahead and made a little project.  Not step-by-steps but the basic idea is to cut the circles

add a border

I made one background and added the month circle with the brad you see at the top.

The background slips into corners on a simple easel.

Humm. Black on Black s hard to see. On the back of the easel there is a sort of pocket to hold the other month circles

At the end, I added a small Post-It note thingie (I cut down a chunk one of a 3 x 3 one) and a pen clipped on the top

Just a quick and easy project, but mostly to show that just because it is a CD calendar, it doesn’t have to be used that way!  And testing out the results of a previous poll, there is a HALF-SIZED set (2 images per page so it will make 2 complete calendars) and a 1/4 size version, to be used for tear-off versions.  You can see how it compares in size to the 3 x 3 Post-it note pad.

The circles also fit a 2″ punch.  You could probably use them as add-ons in a planner!

Full CD size PDF – makes one calendar

1/2 size – makes two calendars

1/4 size – makes four calendars

Have fun.
