    I love that first calendar, too!

    For the last two years, I used Lotta Jansdotter’s fabric calendars and stuck them on my fridge door. Unfortunately, she’s sold out for 2011!

    Otherwise, I keep a A4-size day planner (well, with week view). Love Ordning & Reda for that, but Moleskine (or any knockoffs) work fine, obvs. Right now, I have a blue Legami.

      I did a bit of screenprinting before Christmas and want to design a screen (hopefully) some time this month, so I’ve been going back to some of Lotta Jansdotter’s stuff lately. I have some stationery of hers and sticky notes – thanks for the reminder to get those out and use them. Watch the mail!

    I’m still thinking about this too. I have my planner (paper, of course), but I can’t decided on one for the wall.

    So far, this is what I’m leaning towards: http://www.etsy.com/listing/61731585/2011-antique-impressions-calendar

    But, I’m really loving that Suzy Jack calendar too. I can already tell, I won’t have a calendar hanging on my wall January 1. 🙂

      Ooh! I really like that Antique Impressions calendar (such a sucker for letterpress). Since I don’t want to be that weird overly OCD girl with a million calendars, I feel like I’ve got to choose just one more…but there are so many I like!

    Although I keep my life in the cloud via Google Calendar, I do love me some fine paper. So far I have bought myself a letterpress cal (currently in storage) that A. said he would prefer I take to work…http://seesaw.bigcartel.com/product/2011-letterpress-calendar and then I saw this and thought “oh! what a perfect work cal, all abstract-like”…but not sure if I _need_ it…http://www.etsy.com/listing/64478661/2011-calendar-letterpress-printed?ref=v1_other_2

    It seems that we can agree on a house calendar as one that is a) big and 2) vintage graphics-heavy. (2010 was sort of like this one: http://www.calendars.com/Vintage-Travel-Poster/Vintage-Travel-2011-Poster-Calendar/prod201100004582/?categoryId=cat00898) So, we were at B&N last weekend and got the not-awful oversized Alan Claude lighthouse one for half off….http://search.barnesandnoble.com/2011-Lighthouse/Claude-Alan/e/9781435121379

    Butbutbut: if I could find this one, I might get it…http://www.swiss-miss.com/2010/09/calendar-scarf.html

      This is really funny because I was just looking at this Pantone calendar (http://pinterest.com/pin/2537304/) yesterday.

      Great minds think alike.
