Calendar Round Up 2008: Part One

November 1, 2007

I can’t resist a good round up, so this year I’ve decided to pull together some of my favorite calendars for 2008 just like last year. I may have to add a part 2 to this in case a few slip my mind, so bear with me! Most of these calendars are available and ready to ship, others aren’t but the date in which they’ll be available is listed below. If you see something you like, because many are produced in limited quantities, don’t sleep on it because if you snooze you lose. Enjoy!

    Amazing selection. I can see I will end up with too many 2008 calendars. Thank you for all the work you put into finding these and all the other wonderful items on your blog! Seth

    Hey Holly,

    These are all absolutely lovely. But here’s the thing: I need a wall calendar that has a decent-sized box for each day of the month, so that I can write in it and keep track of my kids’ sports games, their afterschool activities (which are different Every. Single. Day. Urgh!), my work deadlines, when we need to give the pets their flea stuff, when we have doctor’s and dentist’s appointments, etc.

    It seems like most of the calendars out there that are indie-made or that have sophisticated designs are just not that functional. They’re gorgeous, but there’s no place to write anything. I need a calendar that’s beautiful, but that I can also really *use*. Can you help me find some good ones?

    Thanks so much and all the best!

    It was hard picking just one, and I might be back for more, but I chose Camilla’s. There’s enough space for me to jot some things down each day, and it looks fabulous.
