Family Calendars...a great present for everyone!

Personalizing a family calendar is a lot of work, but so much fun. Every event in one place with pictures of the previous year's activities make this calendar so special and personal. 

I add everyone's birthdays, anniversaries, upcoming events like weddings, graduations or new baby arrivals with pictures taken by all of us during the previous year or gather them from Facebook. There are a lot of companies that can create your calendar for you. Here are a few companies that can help you with your personalized calendar...
Using a print shop type program makes it so easy to create each calendar.  I used a program to make mine. Broderbund has a great calendar creator. It's fun to see everyone's face when they see pictures that they have taken over the year.  It takes a little time, but is well worth the effort.  I give them to all of the family members as a Christmas present.  Sometimes I add recipes or other items that might have occurred in the previous year, along with updated emails or information that has changed. This keeps all our information in one place so we can keep in contact with each other.  
There a lots of ways to create your personal calendar for you and your family besides making it totally yourself. These calendars are so personal and make such a great Christmas, Holiday or Birthday gift for everyone in your family. Here are a few websites that can help you create your "personalized" calendar. Just click on the pictures and it will redirect you to websites that can create your calendars for you...
