Cookie Sheet Calendar

I saw the most adorable idea for a magnetic calendar on Opps! I Craft My Pants (that's really the name of the blog... hilarious isn't it!) Well the idea has been hanging out in my "Projects I want to attempt" list over there so it was time to get crackin'. While in Charleston a while back my hubby found this awesome old metal serving tray that was starting to rust in all the right places. We took it home and I gave it a new calendar facelift.
I picked up a bunch of free magnets from the state fair this year and mod podged some scrap book paper over the top. Then I cut the magnets into 1 x 1 1/2 inch rectangles and free-handed the numbers with a Sharpie. If you're wondering, "nineteen" is my favorite! There's a glass magnet to mark the day.
Here are the other months. "June" wins this time I think, followed closely by "May."
