Just popping in during this busy Thanksgiving week to give you a heads-up on some great savings on the binding/punching machine I use to make my Personal Progress calendars (2013, 2012 and upcoming 2014). I am not paid or affiliated with Zutter in any way, I just LOVE my Zutter Bind-It-All and it makes creating my Personal Progress calendars a cinch! Right now, until December 1, 2013, you can get the Bind-It-All for 40% OFF! This is a huge savings–I’ve never seen it priced lower! Continue reading

UPDATE: Find my 2013 Personal Progress calendar here.
One wonderful reader of this blog asked for a way to customize the monthly goal pages in my 2012 Personal Progress Calendar project. In case you missed the post, here is a picture of the finished project:
It is six-by-six-inches in size and features monthly calendar pages, monthly goal pages, a planning for 2012 page, a favorite scripture page and two year in review pages. It can stand on a dresser or hang in a locker or on a wall. You could even print out each page to give to your girls each month. You can find out how to put the calendar together by reading the instructions in the download at the end of this post.
In order to make this calendar more customizable, here’s what I came up with for you:
- A customizable, interactive .pdf file featuring fields you can fill in with your own monthly value, scripture, quote and Personal Progress goal on the monthly goal pages!
- Blank monthly goal page files in .jpeg format for editing in your own word-processing or graphic-editing software (Word, Photoshop, etc.).
I’ve included everything you need in one big zip file for you to download! Remember, you will need to unzip the download before you can use it. Also, to use the .pdf files, you will need Adobe Reader, which is free from Adobe. com and already installed on most computers.
In the zip you will find:
- An interactive .pdf of the 2012 Personal Progress Calendar with project instructions and blank fields for you to fill in (NOTE: The pages to print are after the project instructions.)
- A .pdf with instructions for filling out the interactive file
- The original 2012 Personal Progress Calendar .pdf file with project instructions and pages to print
- A folder with blank monthly goal pages and plans for 2012/year in review 2012 pages in .jpeg format
- A folder with monthly calendar pages in .jpeg format
- A folder with monthly goal pages and plans for 2012/year in review 2012 pages with my suggested values, scriptures, quotes and Personal Progress goals
***IMPORTANT NOTE: You CAN NOT save your information in the interactive .pdf file. Because if this, I suggest you fill in a month at a time and then print out that month. You can always copy your print out to make multiple copies.
This project was so fun for our girls to put together a few weeks ago. They had a great time cutting out their pages and assembling the calendars while socializing together. I hope your Young Women enjoy it as much as they did!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

UPDATE: Find my 2013 version of this project here.
Here is a great project to do for a YW activity that will inspire your Beehives, Mia Maids and Laurels the whole year through: a 2012 Personal Progress calendar! We made these at a recent Young Women’s Personal Progress activity and I thought I would share this inexpensive project with you.
Encourage your Young Women to work on their Personal Progress every month of the year. This six-by-six-inch calendar fits perfectly in a locker, on a desk or dressor or hanging next to a mirror.
It can easily stand up on its own and be placed on a nightstand, desk or dresser to be in full view every day.
Designed to resemble social media, the calendar features interactive elements including a plan-for-the-year journaling page, Personal Progress goal suggestions, favorite scripture page, monthly personal goal areas and a year-in-review evaluation page plus a testimony page. Every month includes a value suggestion, an inspiring quote, suggested Personal Progress goal and a scripture. If you want to add your own values, quotes, Personal Progress goals and scriptures on the monthly goal pages, check out this post.
I’ve included step-by-step instructions as well as printable calendar pages in a .pdf file, which you can download by clicking here. It will need to be unzipped before you can use it.
If you want to customize the monthly goal pages, read this post.
NOTE: The instructions are at the beginning of the .pdf file, the printable pages are at the end. It is a large file and may take a little while to download.
I used one of my favorite new tools, a Zutter Bind-It-All, to put together my calendars, but you can bind yours with a Cerlox, staples, rings or any other binding method. Or, you can print the calendar pages and hand them out each month to your girls.
Remember, this project is for noncommercial, personal or Church use only. Don’t share my file with others in any way, simply send them here to download their own copy.
And keep an eye out here for more great projects–the next one I have for you is amazing! Your girls will love it!
