How to make a personalized calendar yourself?
A calendar in your phone is good, but a calendar posted on a wall at home or in the office is always handy to have!
A DIY photo calendar, a site or software to create a personalized calendar, I suggest in this article several ideas to create a free and personalized calendar easily.

The first tip for creating your own calendar is to use Google Docs. Indeed, go to Google Sheets and then click on “Template Gallery”.
Then select the calendar or agenda template you want to customize (see image below).
With this calendar template offered in Google Docs, you will be able to customize the color, font, size, in short, the whole style of the calendar.
