Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there. Now that I have two kids of my own, I have to take a minute to salute you! You do a difficult job, rewarding yet relentless; it’s the most important job there is, so enjoy your day!

I love this stylish perpetual calendar – you can make it and put it into rotation anytime during the year because it works forever! With a recycled peanut can and some pretty cardstock, you’re well on your way to always knowing what day it is! Make one for your child’s teacher, or start making them now for holiday gifts.
