Calendar Inspiration for 2012

(image from Yumalum)

Happy 2012!  {I've got to get used to saying and writing that}.  I know most of you are on the ball and probably already have a 2012 calendar, but I am running a bit behind, so I today I'm sharing some 2012 calendar inspiration in case you:
a. Are lumped into that happy group of procrastinators along with me ( go us!)
b. Decide that the eye candy is too delicious to pass up and you need more than one calendar

The first one is possibly my favorite- I am a sucker for florals and these are so pretty!  Oh, and friend, it just gets better, this calendar is FREE!  This is a free download from a blog I adore- Skip to My Lou.  Visit Skip to My Lou for details on how to snag this prettiness.

Etsy has a wide array of pretty options for calendars.  Some are traditional, printed and shipped to you, some are big poster style calendars, while some are files you simply download and print yourself.

This modern calendar poster would be a great way to brighten up  a dull office/cubicle or a craft room.  It is from the Etsy shop, Yumalum, which I adore, with so many great color-soaked prints and posters.

 This beauty serves double duty as a calendar and the most amazing wall art.  It's a printable calendar from Lisa Martino Design on Etsy and a complete and total steal for only $10!  Do you love how they've framed it and made such an amazing display?!

This crisp, cheerful printable calendar is perfect for small spaces and only $5 to download from

For the DIY aficionados and digital scrapbookers, here is a fun photo calendar template from ScrapGirls.  
You can customize colors and patterns and of course, photos. They call it a blend, because you drop your photo onto their template and in blends with the background.  It is only $9.99 to download and you can print it in two different sizes.

Cliched as it may be, I just ordered a photo calendar from Snapfish, though you can bet your sweet bippy, I'll be acquiring a few more of the lovelies in this post.  The photo calendar art work is certainly not as amazing as the others mentioned above,  BUT my photo calendar does feature two of my favorite things to look at: my wild and cunning children. Truthfully, the photo calendar is the closest thing I've done to a scrap book for the past few years and the whole family loves it. In addition to the main photos, you can customize it with photos and text on special days such as birthdays and anniversaries. Snapfish has many calendar sizes, layouts and backgrounds to choose from and you can mix and match designs to your heart's content.  PLUS calendars are 50% off through January 6!  Some of my favorite calendar design styles available from Snapfish are Japanese Flower Garden, Damask and Wild Things.
