Single Drawer Desktop Calendar & Post It Note Holder

Following a request from one of my followers on Facebook I've made a variation of the Desktop Calendar & Organiser that I posted on my blog the other day.... you can see that version HERE.  Initially I started designing this solely with the request in mind but as I changed the sizes and style it suddenly occurred to me that my Dad would love something like this!  So this version is for Kim and my Dad.... and everyone else of course ;)
