Our CC orientation went really well last Tuesday night! I am SO excited about this year, and our group looks really 'together' and organized, so that's definitely a plus! However, our director suggested that we bring our Foundations Guide to class each week for a while. I don't know about you, buy my purse is already stuffed with junk; how in the world am I supposed to put that big ol' book in it?! Well, not to worry... I have a plan! A friend mentioned to me the idea of a memory work flip chart a few weeks ago. Brilliant! So, I took a few hours, went through the Foundations Guide, and typed up the memory work into an MS Word document. I had originally planned to cut out the cards, laminate them, and get them bound at Staples (which is why there is extra room at the top of each card), but then I remembered that I had some small, old photo albums in the Craft box downstairs.
I squeezed four weeks onto one page of cardstock, as you can see above.
Then I cut them out and inserted them into this cheap little photo album.
Ta-da! Now I can just throw this in my purse instead of carrying around that big book (and I really do love the 'big book,' but you know it can get heavy, and it's hard to flip through sometimes because it's so floppy.). And I can keep this in my purse when I go to the library, too, so I know exactly which books to look for that week that go along with our memory work! I uploaded the file to C3, but I've had so many problems with it printing correctly, that I just ended up taking it down. I made it in Word, and each time I opened it something new was wrong! I'd fix it, save it, close it, and then open it up again to check it - WRONG again! Sheesh! Anyway, sorry about that. The hubs says that Word is like that. Bummer.
Well, it's really late, but I just had to quickly share this because I think it's so handy! It did take a while to type everything in, obviously, but I'm really glad that it worked out the way that it did. Time well spent (I hope!).
Good night, friends!
