Calendars: For Your Desk

Looking for a little calendar action for your desk? Whether you’re in a cubicle or your dining room table which doubles as a workspace (cough, cough that would be my life until we find a larger flat), you can still make it feel all cozy-like and one way is with a desk calendar. Here are a few of the options out there at the moment…

For the desk...

Cat Seto, Comes with a reusable wood block holder made of reclaimed lumber – and it holds your pencil – cute!, $22.

For the desk...

SusyJack*, Susy does it again with her bold brights, this time in a jewel case, $19

For the desk...

Anna Cote, Screen/Gocco in jewel case, love the natural design elements and the pretty gold on her November view. $22

For the desk...

The Paper Thieves, letterpress calendar in black and white with wood block, man-friendly. :) $26

For your desk...

Blogging these calendars I’m thinking: Gosh 2010. Doesn’t that number freak you out just a little? Sheesh. In school, when I was in like 6th grade, we made these time capsules with stuff that was popular back then and buried them so that someday I guess when we were all living on other planets Jetson-style, someone would dig up our capsule and see what earthlings lived like. Or something. Anyway, I always thought of 2010 as being some major year in history. Like I’d meet George, Elroy, daughter Judy and wife Jane and we’d lunch at some cafe with robots serving us space food. What happened?!? Well, I rather like that we didn’t evolve into some cold, rather droidish society, at least not the metal kind though some of us may feel a bit bot-like in our day-to-day but still, I’m happy 2010 will be what it will be. I think it’s better than how I imagined in many ways, don’t you? But 2010. It’s making me feel like a dinosaur just saying it…

    Wow. This is the best grouping yet. Anna Cotes always does such amazing stuff… I love the tiny calendar, go Kitty!… of course Alicia Bock always makes me drool… I’ve been planning to get Night Owl’s for awhile now… and my favorite has got to be Daisy Princess Paperie. Gorgeous!

    I always look forward to your calendar roundup :0)!!
    I’m going to have to stalk Cat Seto’s, Night Owl’s and Ann Cote’s. I’ve been ooogling over the wood block calendar by Cat Seto since last year!!

    Such a great collection Holly! I’m definitely intrigued by Kitty’s teeny tiny calendar. I need to get my ducks in a row and figure out which style of calendar will work best in our home.

    Thanks so much for including me in this bevy!

    I am falling head-over-heels for some of these desktop beauties! I use a bound planner for all of my time tracking, but I’d buy some of these just for the art :D

    Ummm! Now how do I decide which one or 2 or 3?
    And 2010 seems like an extra special year after reading your blog.

    Any good leads on wall calendars? I’m always looking for beautiful ones that actually have the squares (or space) around the numbers on the bottom page so you can write appointments in.

  14. Kristin commented
    October 16th, 2009 at 2:09pm

    Oh, I am loving these! I’ve been looking for a desktop calendar for 2010 that is fun, artsy, and chic and now I have quite the selection to choose from!

    I can’t believe 2010 is right around the corner! But I’m definitely excited! I think this is going to be one great, monumental year. I’m not sure how, but I just have this feeling, y’know?

    I was having difficulty visually digesting the first grouping that was posted and now the 2nd and 3rd groupings have me in a tizzy.

    I can NOT decide, which of course means several rooms now need a calendar (when previously they did not….)

    ; )

    That’s so funny – I was just watching the Jetsons’s this morning (with my niece) :) I agree though 2010 seems like such a big date, it certainly doesn’t feel like a decade since we celebrated the new millenium….does it? I love all these beautiful calendars – I always buy a photographic one – Floranova – every year but i am very tempted with all these beautiful calendars. So many talented people!

    I was just searching for 2010 calendars to post on my blog and came across your post. This is a great roundup. Personally, I’m leaning toward simple typography and unique displays for my 2010 picks. I love The Paper Thieves desk calendar.
