Joanne I love this idea.
I have done this before, but hand wrote everything. I quite doing it because my handwriting has become difficult to read.
I never thought about doing the clear address labels. I will sure give this a try. Hurray!
Thank you so much. Group hug

I agree this is a wonderful gift idea for a relative.
When I grew up in Holland as a child, we had 'birthday calendars' that were perpetual - there were no days but only the dates of the month so the calendar would last forever and it was for the sole purpose of writing down birthdays. As far as I remember they were always hanging in the bathroom...

I tip my hat to you.
I have an excel spreadsheet that list's everyone out with their info in different columns. All I do is change the year and it calculates the age. Then I change the age on each person's label. The spreadsheet also helps keeping it easy by "sorting" by the column of month/day. Then all the list pops out in order of date, which helps if you are working with 50 birthdays & anniversaries.

Name Anniversary Birthday Year Age 2013
XX Nov 5 May 22 46

The labels sorta look like this
