2012 Calendars

With 2011 nearing an end, I started thinking about one of my favorite necessities for a new year-- the calendar. Throughout most of my life, and still even today, my mom gives me a new calendar each year at Christmas. I always looked forward to it because I enjoyed idea of starting fresh each year with a clean slate to jot down reminders. In fact, our current calendar is a gift from my parents-- one that my dad made in iPhoto using photos they took during their many travels in France.



My mom used to hang her calendars in the kitchen and so naturally I keep mine there as well. The kitchen often is the central part of our house where we congregate since food is an important aspect of my life. So having the calendar there just seems to make sense. As we work our way through a month's time, the calendar usually quickly fills up with little scribbles of writing here and there reminding us of important dates, vacations, events, and appointments.

After browsing Etsy over the past few weeks, I've come to find that there are some amazing artists that have created some fantastic calendars. This is what I found--

Each of these calendars is absolutely fantastic! Which is your favorite? Do you rely on calendars like I do?

  1. That's exactly what I'm working on today. The other half will be making my stands out of reclaimed wood tomorrow. Hope to have them in our store on Monday.

    My mom's calendar hangs in the kitchen too, and she writes on it everyday- it's like a family journal.

  3. gorgeous finds! I am obsessing over that one with the peacock. I always make a photo calendar for my parents using the ones off of Shutterfly. I love my calendars and usually spend a lot of money of fancy day planners, but I rarely use them... I tend to remember most dates in my head!
