2010 Calendar Roundup #1.

There are sooo many great calendars floating around for 2010 that I had to break my yearly roundup down into four parts! I’ll be posting a huge selection starting now and ending Friday.

A perpetual gardening calendar for southern California – for each month there are two lists: planting recommendations and what is in season at the market. Each month also has a linoleum block print of a seasonal fruit or vegetable.

The days of the month have space for notes–either for recording what you’ve planted, harvested or bought that month (I imagined one might keep a planting/harvesting record) OR for using as a birthday calendar. The calendar is not year-specific, so you can keep using it for years to come.

Letterpress printed in three colors on heavyweight 100% PCW recycled card stock and wire-bound with a metal hanger. 5 1/2″ w x 8 1/2″ t.

Eco-friendly sustainably harvested yellow birch wood. Wood is sliced thin from a small amount of raw material & uses no water & very little power. Wood grain varies from month to month. 6 flat wooden cards printed both sides. Clear display case. Landscape size: 7 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. {Also check out their 2010 Critter Calendar.}

This colorful calendar has been printed on smooth white 110# cardstock. Each month’s card has its own fun print and measures approx. 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Calendar includes one set of 1 x 1 inch wooden cube stands. Each stand can hold approx. 6 months at a time.

This calendar comes in both small and large. The large version of the calendar measures 8.5×14″ and features a vibrant and unique patterns, all created by me, a different one for each month. The small version measures 5.5×8.5″. Both are printed on white matte cover stock with vibrant Canon inks, held together with a shiny silver book ring at the top. {Also check out her ‘make your year abundant’ calendar!}
