Which 2012 Calendar Defines Me as a Person?

I love organization; alphabetizing, arranging, cataloging...you name it, I do it.  I think that's why I have such a hard time choosing a calendar each year.  It's something I'll look at and use every single day, and I want it to be functional and attractive.  Here are the calendars I'm choosing between this year - I hope you'll find one for yourself as well!

Anticipating a rough year?  This may be the calendar for you!  Plus, the lyrics are from my favorite Mountain Goats song.  Love!

This is the one I'm leaning towards.  I have a grand plan of painting one of my kitchen cabinets with chalkboard paint and hanging the current month from a tack on the cabinet.  Then, I'll keep track of weekly appointments, litsts, etc. using chalk on the cabinet!  Is it sad that I'm super excited about this?

I nearly hyperventilated when I saw the next selection.  It's practically calendar porn - function, design, practicality, *and* it's still usable when the year is over!  It's pretty perfect.

Dutch Door Press is one of my favorite Etsy shops.  I'm a frequent purchaser of their cards, and a big fan of their state series.  So, it's no surprise that I love their 2012 calendar, too.  The colors are so pretty!

Anyone who has seen my apartment knows I love a good wall hanging, and particularly a black-and-white one.  This calendar is printed on linen, and I can see it looking modern and fresh in any room.  Any of *my* rooms.  heh.  Maybe I need two calendars?

Next up is a beautiful collaborative effort with the sweetest watercolor paintings for each month.  Plus, each month's picture is easily removable via a perforated line and makes for instant art!

If anyone is interested in a few more selections, I've created a treasury on Etsy with the rest of my favorites.  I could so easily paper my walls with 2012 calendars - there are so many good ones to choose from!  
If any of you have come across a perfect calendar, leave me a link in the comments!  I'd love to see what you've found!


  1. Those are all unique and beautiful - I love the second one.

  2. Ohh I love that wreathe wall hanging calendar! :)

  3. gosh, you are so organised aren't you?! I love the Mountain Goats, so it would probably have to be the first :) xxx
