I can’t believe the many calendars that readers submitted to be included in the annual decor8 calendar round up (thank you!). I’m having a hard time deciding on just one, so I’ve decided to purchase 4 and place them in different areas of my home – the kitchen, over my desk, in my arts + crafts studio, and another to lean against the wall on the credenza in my living room (like the Rhythm calendar from Japan below).
If you wonder how I find all of these calendars, I can’t take full credit because at least 1/4 are submissions from readers. I hope that you enjoyed Part One, now it’s time for the second and final collection of calendars designed by mostly independent artists. I tried to include a variety of styles to appeal to all of you. :)

And last but certainly not least, and I apologize that I don’t have a sneak peek for you, but the Port2Port Press calendar is another limited edition letterpressed calendar that is beautiful and sells out quickly each year. It goes on sale November 15th so watch the Port2Port website mid month.
Psst: Looking for planners? You have to check out Buy Olympia.
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!
Adore the graphics, composition, and colors, really great work.

Design Public consistently has the best selection of modern finds for the home, and this season is no different as they have loads of new items that you’ll want to own. Here’s a few I have my eyes on lately…

Fruit Fly Pie makes dishware and ceramics and then hand paints them so they look like vintage finds. She either makes plates, bowls, mugs, and vases from her potters wheel or via slip cast from vintage ceramic molds.
p.s. enna has an etsy shop, too.
