3×4 Project Life style Spanish calendars for 2019

I must be getting old.  Or maybe it was trying to do 5 different calendars in three different  languages that did it!

I usually try to get to Spanish and French calendars at some point and since I had requests I figured it should be sooner rather than later.  Let’s start with the Spanish ones today.  I know from past years that while SPANISH calendars usually have a Monday start, other Spanish-speaking countries have a Sunday start so I do both.

For the Monday to Sunday Spanish calendar click HERE.

If you want the Sunday to Saturday version, click HERE.

As usual I tried to check the month dates about 5 times, and I did find occasional errors (which I corrected, of course) but I do remember a few years back when I used some internet site for the month names and got many comments saying it was wrong – mine was only wrong cause the internet site I used was wrong.  The design is in B&W but you could colour in the flowers with coloured pencils or Copics.

I will be adding English versions for Sunday to Saturday and Monday to Sunday (which I don’t always do) and a French Monday to Sunday version.  Then I have to do a LARGE PRINT version to fulfill another request.  Then I might be done for the year.  I’ll have to see if I get inspired…

Spanish Sunday to Saturday

Oddly, I had TWO requests for more Spanish calendars.  One was for the non-traditional Sunday to Saturday version.  I had a quick play to see if it would be easy to create.  It wasn’t too bad.  I changed up the colouring for December, but the rest are the same, although the location moves around

Grab it here.  I do realize that the world is split between Spanish speakers you use Monday to Sunday and those who use Sunday to Saturday.  If there is enough interest I will try to do the MtoS version soon.

I also hope to sort out a Planner page so I can keep all the bots for printing custom calendar pages in one place.  And I may try to see if I can print the calendar pages in different languages.  I love a challenge…..

For the Monday to Sunday folk – 2017 lace calendar (and Spanish version too!)

This ended up being easier than I thought it would.  Every year as I make these calendars I find new little tricks to help me create them faster.  What takes the longest is obsessively checking to make sure I get the dates right.  These have been checked and re-checked and I used what I hope is a reputable site to get the Spanish right!

Enjoy.

Oh, and note that there are a few blank cards at the end.  Hope they are useful!

Spanish and German and a preview of the Pretty CD one

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.
