Visual calendar: projects this month

I keep freaking out about my projects and whether I’m on track to finish them all up before I have to mail them off or leave town or whatever.  I have a scratched-sheet of nigh-illegible writing that I noted down one night on the treadmill.  Yes, hence illegibility.

Well, I kept referring back to the alien script daily, planning things out around it.  I thought it might be easier for me to, I dunno, plan important events out if I could see the frigging things.  Also, it’d be fun to think ahead to the neat things I want to make! I might even go as far as to make a daily log of my made-items.  Hm.  Some sort of web-log.  Gosh, if only there was some outlet for such things… I just don’t know…


picture-2Combine that idea with the daily training log over at and voila! My own daily visual tracking calendar was born.  I wish it could be a little more interactive, but for now it’s just a sad little Word document with images pasted onto the days.  Oh well.  It’s quick and it works for what I need.

picture-11I haven’t put in all the raid days yet, but I did start working on my it’s-a-small-world stuff.  I’ve got this huge hare-brained idea for my nieces, which I’m sure I’ll blog more about once I get done with the knitting portion of the month.  I can see that will last until about the 20th.  Handy!

I even put in little pictures of stamps on the two Mondays I need to ship packages out.  🙂  I figured that on days when I didn’t have a raid or a “due date” for an item, I’d use the day to catch up on unfinished items or emblem farming or whatever.  Oh look, I guess I’m flying out the 21st.  gtk.

  1. you should totally get that into an ical format of some kind and or integrate it into google calendar. the new google labs calendar/task combo within gmail is pretty sweet.

  2. LOL that calendar is the cutest nerdiest thing I’ve seen all week…

    But the sweaters are adorable. 🙂

    What program do you use to create so many fun graphics?? I want a cool vs nerd scales for my blog…. hee hee!

  3. Thanks, I’ll check out gmail. I want it to be easier than *ack* Word. For the calendar, I just dragged a bunch of clipped graphics onto a Word template of the calendar grid, then turned that into a flat image.

    And thank you, Ceci! For the scales, and most graphics I create myself, I used Fireworks.
