2009 Calendar Round Up

October 17, 2008

It’s that time again… Time for the annual decor8 Calendar round up. It’s funny, when I started writing this back in 2006 I had no idea it would stick. Then in 2007, artists automatically contacted me asking if I would be doing another round up and if so, when. Now this year, same thing. Calendars have been rolling in via email from all over the world! Yay! So thanks to all who have sent in submissions — I’ve tried to include all! If I’ve missed anyone please comment below with a link to their calendar. Enjoy!

    You’ve just given a calendar addict unlimited options! I already have the Saelee and Jill Bliss calendar, thankfully. How will I choose between the Be Happy Now calendar and Color Stripes? *biting my nails* French Bulldog! oh goodness….I better go get my wallet.

    Thanks for posting so much delicious eye candy! :D

    My kitchen wall is blanketed by a large, boring, desk-blotter calendar showcasing our crazy schedule – it’d be SO nice to have a giant, fillable poster-sized version of some of the cute/beautiful calendars listed above!! =)

    This is the first blog in the past several years to feature some calendars that actually have space to write in appts – yay for progress!! However, I’m really hoping to see them keep growing bigger than sheets of notebook paper….anybody seen something like this yet???

    These are so GREAT!!!!!! I’ve already said this but I’m thinking 2009 might be the year for one calendar per room in the house. Because honestly I cannot decide between them. I always love seeing them all together like this ~ and thank you for including in me in the mix ~!!!
