DIY Birthday Chart
I don't know what your habits are, but when it comes to birthdays, my habits are LAME. I cannot remember birthdays for the life of me and always feel guilty when I miss one. I've made board after board, list after list, reminder after reminder and nothing works. I tried the facebook birthdays alert thing, but it is never early enough to actually buy a gift or send a card. I tried having a list by my bedside, but it got lost in the shuffle of gardening magazines and sudoku puzzles each night. I tried making a chalkboard with a list of birthdays, but I never looked at it.
So I bought these little white tags for a couple dollars for the actual birthday tags and used stamped number tags from Kristina of A Cozy Cup of Tea to mark the months. I hung the tags on little magnetic hooks, spray painted with metallic bronze to match the rest of the metals in our home.
I simply hung all the names behind each month tag and each month, I take the tags down, make a note on the calendar, send out cards right away and try my best to be a better daughter-in-law/cousin/aunt/daughter.
Those racks the magnets are hanging on? HERE is their story...
