is 2010 here already?

>> Monday, December 07, 2009

Problems:
1. Lessened coffee intake, meaning no Starbucks coffee for me. Therefore, no stickers for the Christmas drinks.
2. Unsatisfied with the look of the Starbucks planner. Haloooo vertical spaces?

Solution:
"Make your own planner" Year 2, for only 100 pesos


Step 1:
Bond paper. Use the board to separate the months.




Step 2:
Colored pens. Crayons. Manually write down the days, months and the dates.




Step 3:
Months on Manila paper. Cut and pasted on board paper.




Step 4:
More cutting and pasting and writing for monthly calendars.





Step 5:
Create folder. Be narcissistic by adding name.




Step 6:
Travel to UP Shopping Center to have it ring bound.




Step 7:
Do cover. Stay up in the wee hours of the morning, only to realize that your planned cover ain't working. Too much colors. Looks like a cheap-ass placemat. Straight to the trash can.




Step 7: (take two)
Back to board paper covered in plastic. Simple cut out from scratch paper.




Step 8:
Attach cover to binded contents with thick elastics (from Trinoma). One elastic for binding, one elastic as pencil-holder-slash latch. Use the rest as hippie headbands.




Step 9:
Take a photo of finished product.






This is one way to be excited for 2010. :))
