I attempted a non-greeting card project the other day. While it's done and up, I feel like this was one of those potential Pinterest fails. I saw cute chalkboard calendars online and wanted one of my own. I bought some adhesive chalkboard sheets online. I pieced those together and adhered them to the wall. From there, I added washi tape to mark off the boxes. The month name is also done in washi tape. Finally, I bought some liquid chalk markers to fill out my calendar. The sheets on the side are my monthly goals. Posting them will hopefully keep my goals in my mind.
I like the look of the craft, but I can see some issues with this project. The washi tape and chalkboard pieces do not stay on the wall very well. Maybe it's just because our walls are too bumpy. At any rate, I have had to smooth this out a few times in the last four days. I will probably get angry at some point in the near future and rip it down. We'll see. Cute idea, not so great execution.
