MAKE IT / 26

we have different moods for different months. whether it’s a shift in our lives, our style, or the weather. over here at designlovefest, we really still love putting pen to paper, and taking it back to the old days of cutting our favorite clippings out of magazines.

so, we made this 2013 calendar mood board calendar for you to download and keep next to your desk. each month glue a few new things to it that inspire you…colors, patterns, interiors, outfits, shapes. anything you’d like to look at for the next couple of weeks while you work…


make sure to print the calendar on nicer, card stock paper for the best results.
we used colorful binder clips to hold the pages together.

add some brightness to your desk with a new color each month…

    Thanks again for the lovely DIY!

  • 3. Sylvie  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 9:07 am

    Thanks Bri! These are great!

  • 4. Stefania  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 9:11 am

    thank you Thank You THANK YOU! :)

  • 5. Explore*Handmade  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 9:25 am

    This is a fabulous idea. So glad to make an inspiration board each month next year!

  • 6. Lacey  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 9:27 am

  • 7. Rebecca Lately  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 9:28 am

    Thank you for this, Bri! I love me a good calendar. This would be really awesome for fashion-y inspiration and to keep track of my blog posts. Awesome!

  • 8. alicia  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 9:39 am

    I love the idea of a “monthly mood board”. I always find myself putting stuff up and then adding and adding and adding until I’m sitting in front of a colourful but messy clutter.

  • 9. anisa  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 9:51 am

    oh wow i absolutely love this definitely printing it out

  • 10. Kiti  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 10:04 am

    what a great idea!!

  • 11. The New Diplomats Wife  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 10:06 am

    love this – love the template too, i might just go minimal and start with a nice clean blank one for planning out the year – i love blank calendars, so much possibility. but i love reviewing my full ones at the end of the year to see what i’ve done – outlook just doesn’t give that same year-end satisfaction!

  • 12. Natalie / Half Asleep Studio  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 10:09 am

    Ah, you’re the best! Definitely doing this.

  • 13. sue  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 11:07 am

    this is fab, thank you! off to find my glue stick! :)

  • 14. LARY@ Inspiration Nook  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 11:08 am

    Adoroble! Thanks guys!

  • 15. Sarah  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 11:17 am

    These are so awesome! Reminds me of my celebrity collage covered walls as an angsty teenager. I’m definitely doing it!

  • 16. Joan Born  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 11:20 am

    I love this idea! Printing mine out today.

  • 17. Marisa  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 11:26 am

    Bri, this DIY turned out great. Nice work! Glad to see you kept some of the things from my leave-behind, too :)

  • 18. lindsey  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 11:31 am

    going to create 5 different ones for christmas gifts!

  • 19. Kory Woodard  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 11:36 am

    Love this! I’ve been looking for a calendar for next year and this will be absolutely perfect!

  • 27. Anna  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    Great idea, thank for sharing! I really like the layered triangles at the bottom of the January calendar too, so I guess I’ll have to add metallic sharpies to my wish list…dang

  • 28. Kenzie Lee  |  December 3rd, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    This is great! Can’t wait to download and decorate!

  • 64. Chrissy  |  December 9th, 2013 at 3:01 am

    Will you PLEASE do another one? It was my Christmas gift to my father last year- i decorated each page with a family member who was celebrating a birthday that month. Including his parents who had passed on, our immediate family and his siblings… and he said it was the most thoughtful present he’s received in a long time. A 2014 calendar would be amazing! Pretty please with a cherry on top?

  • 65. Lianna  |  December 30th, 2013 at 7:26 am

    I’ve also come back searching for a 2014 version! As a manager I printed these for each of the girls in my department to keep track of our important dates, they could then personalize them.
