Crafty Copy Cat - Multiple year calendar - Part 1

I am drawing a blank on where I got this idea.  I thought I had seen it on Pinterest but now for some reason I can't find that pin.  But I will show you my partially finished product.

The concept of this calendar is to keep a running record of something done each day of the year for multiple years in a row.  Here is when I would link up to the pretty version that is already done, but alas I can't find it.

Sooo instead you get to see how I made mine so far! :)

Items you will need:
~Strawberry/tomato basket
~About 184 4x6 lined index cards (obviously I didn't buy enough)
~Date stamper
~12 post cards or photos
~Paper cutter or scissors

Using the paper cutter or scissors, cut the 4x6 index cards in half so that you end up with a 4x3 card.
I started with this paper cutter and then realized I couldn't get an accurate 3" measure.
So I switched to this one!
This step should not take very much time.  You can even do this while watching a really awesome show!
Yup that is One Tree Hill, I am trying desperately trying to catch up so I can watch the last season "in real time".
Then place the cut index cards (if you are like me you don't have enough yet) into the strawberry basket and wait to figure out what to do next. :)
More to come on this.  I am still trying to figure out how I want to date the index cards... I don't have a date stamper and I am not exactly interested in purchasing one.

I will however continue to try to find out where the source for this idea is.  I have a text out to my sister to see if she has the link saved on her computer.

Completely off topic, I am loving the weather outside.  It makes me want to go to the beach...

See you tomorrow!!
