Even Closer - 3rd Rev of My New(er) System

Well, thanks to shris over here, I'm ever closer to getting my own, customized version of the Harvard built. I'm not sure if I'll go with it or not, but I'm going to give it a test. I've merged a 2008 calendar, 2 pages per week, classic sized. If you've seen a Harvard Planner, it looks similar. I'll likely test print this, most recent merge, then do a new one for the remainder of the year for testing. I've gotten the margins good for circa rings as well. That's been the driving force too - I, all too often, need to insert x,y, or z into my calendar, something that won't fit well in a spiral-bound calendar. So, this will hopefully help, if I like it. This'll give me 6 months of a parallel deployment and test to evaluate in time for next year.

Thanks to all for the encouragement (though indirect) and help,
Jason

It sounds like you may have exactly what you need there...

Any chance of sharing some pictures (since the templates would be too close to original inspiration)?

We'll see

Maybe I can. I've got a pretty stacked task list the next few weeks, but I'll try. I'm excited to try and make this work. Even though the Harvard's not too expensive, the flexibility will rock!

If I can get it together and post a pic, I'll let folks know.

thanks!

No rush... and remember to take some time for yourself too. :D

(oh and cost is never an issue, sometimes DIY stuff is just better because you made it ;P)

Doh!

On the drive home last night, it finally hit me. I've been going about this ALL wrong. I've been designing the background pic in a classic orientation, two per page. I built it so the days of the week were on the left and actions on the right. Then it hit me - when bound, those are actually on two different pages! So, today, I reworked the days of the week page in a full 8.5X11. I'll build it out like that, and when I go to print, I'll reduce it (my inkjet, though not the fav, will automatically print in booklet format).

So, still grinding away.
