Don't Have a Calendar Yet? Never Fear!

Yes, I know it's January 8th. I know you're supposed to go buy your calendars before the year ends. But who has time for that? Who are these organized people? I don't know any of them.

What I do is leisurely look for a calendar on etsy. Especially by artists I like. That way I can get 12 frameable prints of their amazing work for the price of a calendar! Isn't that what you do? If not, you should start.

{Be Happy Now has been one of my fave etsy shops to peruse for a while. Jenny is a really talented artist and I love looking at her new listings! This is the small version of her 2010 calendar - you get twelve 3x4.5 cards for $12! If the traditional wall calendar is more your style, she has one here.}

{There's really nothing like a Polaroid. Everything is softer, the colors are muted and yet somehow they've always seemed vibrant to me. Vital. Like a slice of life or a piece of someone's day. Alicia Bock's 2010 Polaroid Calendar is just that. It's printed on iridescent paper which adds to the ethereal quality of the photographs. You get twelve unbound 5x7 cards for $29. She also has a 2010 calendar featuring her beautiful photographs of Paris here. SALE: enter code HAPPY ANNIVERSARY in the message to seller and get 20% off non-sale photographs and calendars.}

{A Year at the Fair calendar features twelve 5x7 carnival photos taken by bomobob for $19. The colors are bright and saturated and the excitement and slight creepiness of the fair is captured perfectly.}

{African Grey is a really fun, colorful shop packed with notebooks, greeting cards, prints, calendars and printable items. Whitney is a graphic designer (and soon to be first time mom!) who makes all of her items in her home studio. The Puppy Mugs Calendar (bottom) is a set of twelve 2.5” x 4.5” unbound sheets. The 2010 Puppies Calendar (top) is a mini calendar - each page measures 3" x 4" and is unbound. Whitney has many other calendars available, including a really lovely, graphic nautical one here.}

{I love the look of giclee. Giclee uses ink-jet printing on high-quality paper giving a really rich, vibrant and velvety appearance. The 2010 Giclee Calendar from joo joo includes twelve cards, each measuring 2 5/8" x 4". I've long been a fan of this shop, specifically because of prints like this one, this one and this one.}

{printables are one of my favorite things ever! This modern, graphic, Mid-Century Chairs Calendar is available for only $5! Five dollars! And it's eco-friendly - one page of 8.5"x11" paper will hold 2 months! You only need 6 pieces of paper for your whole year! Wow, this is a lot of !!!, I should calm down a bit. Blue Tricycle also has matching stationery to this calendar and you can get any 3 printables (calendars, stationery, gift tags) for only $10.}

Oh my gosh, I have SO many more to show you, but this post has been long enough! Check back on Saturday 1/9 for the second half of the 2010 Calendar Roundup!
