I hope you all found Vintage Calendars from the 8 different alternatives I have provided in November and December! However, I still have one more calendar for 2017 to share, the Weekly Wallpaper Planner:
I have used my favorite Vintage Wallpapers to design this calendar, and it is different in the sense that it is a horizontal planner! Each week number is listed on top, Monday-Sunday, with larger cells for the work days and smaller cells for the weekends. Thus, this is a weekly planner suitable for a important events in a small business, for a long term project, or a maybe a family.
For more personal use, this planner would also work if you like to plan your blogposts, or craft projects. Combine it with some of my matching Wallpaper Lists, i.e. To Do Lists, Don’t Forget Lists or Shopping Lists, and Wallpaper Notes.
I’m using the planner to map the main activities “my” master students, PhD students and teaching staff have at the University, where I work as a coordinator 🙂 Yup, planning, organizing and coordinating is my job! Before Christmas I already started planning the academic year of 2017/2018 😛 And figured I wanted to add a personal touch and some vintage style to my “command central” 😀
4 weeks print on each A4 page, resulting in a total of 13 pages for 2017. If you are like me and enjoy the “big picture” you can print the full size pages and hang them like I did (so far weeks 1-36 are up on my wall, the full spring semester and the summer). I also took pictures of each page, stored to my iPhone, making it very quick to look up what days to avoid for the more daily activities (when I’m not in my office and need to find dates “off the bat”, often times for more people than myself…lol)
If you are the type to use a planner (i.e. Erin Condren) you might enjoy printing your weekly pages in a smaller size that can be inserted for a quick overview of several weeks at once, rather than have to search on your iPad/iPhone to check your calendar or photos.
Or you can hang the pages stacked, like a regular calendar, with only the current 4 weeks showing.
I laminated the pages (optional!), and used different color markers to list the various activities. On mine, black is the weekly course sessions, green is the holidays & special student events, blue are staff events, and red is the exams. I had all weekly course sessions crammed into two tiny pages before, and the other information scattered here and there, and I love having it all together, nice and big up on my wall now! 😀
Depicted from my office is the Norwegian version, with Norwegian holidays, but I’m sharing the English version with you, with only the basic international holidays, so if your country has special holidays, you will have to add them yourself. If anyone would like the Norwegian version, please send me an email (click on my avatar at the bottom of any post here on WoW) or leave a comment below to request it.

The download folder also includes blank weekly pages (with no dates/months/holidays), should you wish to continue this calendar for later years 🙂
