* 2009 calendars

Posted on January 14th, 2009 by maitreya. Filed under Craft Room, Paper Crafts, Wants.

I love calendars.  Becket sent me an awesome Gocco one from modern printed matter that I have up in my office.  I love the layered colors and natural silhouettes.  Instead of the CD case stand, they’re hung by binder clips on my bulletin board.  It’s the first year in a while that I haven’t put up a Nikki McClure one, but change is good.

In my kitchen, I printed out this calendar from LollyChops.  Originally I was going to make the alternate version using vellum overlays, but I don’t have any vellum handy and tracing paper ended up being too flimsy.  The narrow size is a perfect fit in my kitchen where I put my A Little Hut calendar last year (you can get 2009 ones in her Etsy shop).  In fact, I even used the same wire hanger I used on the old calendar.

For my craft room, I printed out this ridiculously cute town calendar from Canon.  It replaces the tiny showcase letterpress lunar calendar I had last year (which also came in a 2009 version).  Actually, replace is the wrong word since I left the 2008 calendar up too because it’s so pretty. :P

And last, in the bedroom, there’s the bubblewrap calendar.  It’s not exactly the prettiest thing in the world, but I like the vertical-months design, and it’s like a year round advent calendar, so how could I not get it?  The bubbles are really satisfying to pop, so loud that Mark sometimes calls “what was that?” from another room.

    I love all these ideas, especially the one from Modern Printed Matter and the bubble wrap calendar, which looks so fun! Thanks!

    I am going to make you this. Except that takes up too much room, so I’m going to put it on a roladex. Sure, it’ll end up costing me $60 in film, but hey, you can use it FOREVER.
