How To Make a Personalized Photo Calendar for 2018 Plans
Personalized Your Calendar with Photos for Inspiration in 2018
2018 is upon us, which for most of us means a bit of reflection – and a lot of planning ahead. Whether you’ve got lots of New Year’s resolutions or simply lots to look forward to, creating a personalized calendar for yourself is a great way to go into the New Year with intention that’s more than just penciled in. With a personalized photo calendar made just for you, your plans are IN PRINT, which means they are premeditated, planned out, and locked in with indelible ink.
RESOLUTIONS Whether you have a long list of resolutions or one big resolution broken down into multiple milestones, a custom Mixbook calendar lets you choose specific dates for assessing your progress or reaching goals. You can also choose inspirational images specific to each month to give you a little motivation along the way. Remember to make your goals attainable so that you stick with your plan of action. If your goal is to get to the gym every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, get it in print those three days of the week all year. If your goal is to create one photo book per month to chronicle your family’s recent history, break it down into bite-sized goals. Maybe make the first Friday of every month the day you choose and upload photos into a new photo book template. And perhaps you do all your editing and moving photos around by the second Friday. By the third Friday you will add captions and order – so that by the fourth Friday you have a photo book in hand!
BIG PLANS If your plans for 2017 aren’t so much about resolutions, but you’re determined to have lots of things to look forward to, a calendar is a great way to build it in right from the start. If you are hell-bent on having date-night once a week, put it down as a recurring event every last Saturday night. If it’s there in print, you’re far less likely to skip it in favor of something else that comes up. And if you’re determined to take a trip, plan for it now. Book your tickets for summer vacation or reserve that campsite now so you can block out the week for a true getaway that you will look forward to far in advance. If your goal is to get out to more cultural events with your loved-ones, look up all the performances and talks taking place locally, then buy tickets and get it on your calendar!
COOL, CALM AND COLLECTED IN 2017 Maybe it’s a resolution of yours to be more organized next year – maybe not. But if you scrambled to get birthday cards, holiday gifts or anything else in the mail in 2016, use your calendar to ensure that 2017 is far calmer by plugging in important events like birthdays and holidays. Most importantly, you should ALSO enter in the day by which you need to have a card and a gift in the mail. If you enter those dates a week ahead, you’ll avoid having the big day sneak up on you. If you plan ahead by a couple days, you could actually get DIY foil art prints cards to your friends and family on their special days.
Happy Mixbooking! Happy New Year!
