Calendar Love






I do love calendars. My life is not hectic anymore, I don't need them to write down daily meetings or anything like that. I just love having a calendar if it's a beautiful kind. A planner type of calendar is a place to jot down little notes or mark friends' birthdays so it does have a practical function, of course. But, I must say finding a suitable calendar isn't easy for me. It was already January when I found 2010 calendars I really liked. But it was all worth waiting. Today I received a sweet package from Made by a muffin. It can't be anything dull if the name is that cute! This is a custom made cotton fabric covered planner. I just adore that little fabric button and a string closure it features. Inside I found lots of interesting and useful pages: World holidays, weights & measure tables etc. Oh, and she even included a book mark made from a vintage measure tape, just perfect for a girl who sews. Thanks Laura, I'm loving my muffin calendar!




And here is a wall calendar I purchased a bit earlier this January. It was a PDF download from naomilynn's shop. I love its modern and simple look. I printed it on a semi-glossy photopaper I found from our drawer but it would look nice on a brown kraft paper too. So now I'm feeling content and relieved, I can happily watch these calendars all year until December 31st!
