Whoa. Where does the time go? I can’t believe I let so many days go by without updating. I can promise you that won’t happen again. I am starting to really enjoy blogging (such a newbie…this is my very first blog!), but it truly is amazing how quickly the time goes by and how easy it is to miss a whole week if you’re not careful–and I obviously wasn’t very careful this past week, was I?
Let’s talk about time. Sweet, precious time. Stylish time. Crazy time! Time to update the old calendars, right? I love this calendar from Cranky Pressman, first and foremost for the fact that I agree that 2009 was a growling bear of a year, but also because I’m in love with letterpress printing. This is such a fabulous example of ending this decade with a fantastic ROAR!!

It’s time to update our calendars, and if you’re like me, you record all of your pertinent information in your iPhone and let the alarms do the talking. I like that format because I can take my calendar with me wherever I go.
This leaves the traditional wall or desk calendar to take on new meaning. I love some of these ideas, from chic to cheeky…they are a fantastic way to brighten your day or dress your space!

Ahhh yes, Paris. I can almost feel a crisp Spring day, walking through the park or along the sidewalks in the Marias. Makes me long for my next trip. For now, I can stare at the photos…and perhaps pencil something in?
J'adore these galoshes! Photo: Decor 8
Don’t you love the look of handcrafted and hand-drawn artwork? I love this little pocket calendar with the cute galoshes on the cover.

I also really love the look of vintage posters. This one is hand silkscreened from an original, hand-drawn illustration. It kind of looks like an old rock poster, doesn’t it? Cool for that blank spot in the wall that needs that special…something.

These are pretty and eco-friendly sheets with nature and graphic prints that look great tacked to a board or clipped on a string. Make a statement with multiple pages.

How cool is this? I love putting sticky notes all over everything…I mark pages and leave notes and stick them pretty much anywhere. This calendar is color coded by month and has a pop-up number that you can fold up every day! Brilliant!

And of course, I saved the absolute BEST for last! Who doesn’t love popping bubble wrap to the point of obsession? Okay, maybe I’m speaking for myself, but when I found this calendar on the Refinery29 website, I practically jumped for joy and couldn’t click/pop over to the website fast enough to see where I could purchase this calendar. Unfortunately, it’s currently sold out. BUT WAIT! Don’t let that spoil your fun too much. You can click on the image to take you to a pop-able bubble calendar online.
2010 can’t come fast enough. Have fun!
