People often say to me, "I don't know how you do it all!" Now, I don't do it ALL, but I have a lot going on which may lead people to think I'm an overachiever, and over the past year, I've become more of a paper calendar person to keep it all in order. There's just something about writing things down and seeing things on paper that is appealing to me. I have a calendar for my personal life, a calendar for the blog, and a calendar to map out lesson plans at school. Today I wanted to share a cute little addition I made to my blog calendar to keep me organized.

If you've been around here long, you know I love felt. This little DIY doesn't take many supplies, and I bet you have many of them around your house! You'll need felt, a needle and thread, magnets, a measuring tape, a hot glue gun, and scissors. 

I cut a piece of felt 1 1/2 inches wide by 5 inches long.

Then, I cut another piece that was 1 1/2 inches wide by 1 inch long.

I sewed the smaller piece to the larger piece like so. I sewed up and then back down each side just to give it some durability.

Next, I hot glued the magnets to the back of the piece.

Easy as that, I made a magnetic bookmark that is also a pen keeper! It is perfect to hold my favorite pens, Pilot G2 Target Fashion Collection and mark the month I'm on in my calendar!

Did you know Pilot G2 is America’s Go-2 gel ink pen. Known for its smooth writing and comfortable grip, Pilot G2 is the #1 Selling gel ink brand in America (NPD, 2015)? I sure believe it because I have been a Pilot G2 user for years! Their pens are perfect for my planning and paper checking as a teacher. They write well,  work hard, and last longer than other pens I've used.

Even better, Target has partnered with Pilot G2 to jazz up your writing this year with the G2 Target Fashion Collection (only available at Target). Target also carries the G2 Premium and G2 Metallics pens!” I picked up a pack with the G2 Target Fashion Collection which has G2 Metallics in it too! You can find these awesome writing utensils on a special end cap in the stationary section of your local Target!
