[quote]Ok, I've been playing with figures and possibilities and here's a proposal.
If we do the 7-day format (I like that one because it gives us a whole page for creativity) like this - week to the left, artsy bits to the right:
we will need 120 pages for the diary itself (5 weeks + 5 blanks/week).
I also thought we could include a special-feature-front page for each month - and maybe use the back of this one as a Monthly Notes page or such instead of starting the calendar immediately on the back.
(One option could be, for the first week, instead of artsy stuff having the blank page on the left for the notes and the week on the right like this - this would cut down 12 pages):
So (and consider how much numbers terrify me, I might have got these all wrong but you get the idea):
120 calendar pages (including the blank on the right)
24 month cover and monthly notes
10 intro pages - personal info, calendar, useful info, some other good stuff we might think of including
6 end pages
14 contact pages (using ABC DEF GHIJ KLM NOP QRS TUVWXYZ division)
2 front cover
2 back cover
180 if Cornelia agrees on including the wonderful Edinburgh map she drew for the Emotional Guide.
Cost-wise, is this a reasonable number of pages? If needed, we can cut down easily on the contacts, end pages and playing with the monthly cover space I've mentioned before. The amount of space we have to work with really is the best starting point.
Anyway, let me know. As you've probably noticed by now, I love diaries and I really want to make this one happen. Ahah

we really need a template that already has the dates marked on it. shall keep searching, if anyone has a gift for googling maybe you could look too, it is not my forte. thanks
