Each year I make the members of my family calendars - for them to use at home and work. They are simple to do at home - save yourself some money, give it a try! I like to use Microsoft Publisher because there is already a preformatted calendar in the templates section. I add blank pages in front of each month and that is where I insert my pictures. I print them out on cardstock and spiralbind them. I have laminated the covers before, but it really isn't needed. This year I added transparency sheets onto the covers. They hold up really nicely. I love to personalize them by adding peoples pictures on their birthday and with special dates, etc. I had to make 4 different versions, depending on what family members I was giving it to. Quick and painless (for the most part!).
