I regularly pull up the month's view on my iCal to figure out dates and days of the week. For November, I created a lock screen with the month view. I based the design off of the 'Make It Work' desktop wallpaper. I made it with hopes of saving a step or two when figuring out my scheduling.
Hope this helps you! Want more designs and downloads? Let me know in the comments below what type of things you want me to create!
