2012 Calendar Round-up, Part 1

Y’all, I can barely believe it, but it’s that time of year… calendar season!  Today is the first of what I’m sure will be many calendar round up posts (last year there were nine!), and for the first installment I’m focusing on 2012 editions from some of my favorites from 2011.  First up, the always lovely nature-inspired minimalist designs from one of my perennial favorites, Satsuma Press:

This year Rifle  Paper Co. is offering three different calendar formats – two monthly wall calendars in botanical or fruit themes, and a twelve month floral wall calendar:

I first glimpsed the Pistachio Press cross stitch calendar back at the National Stationery Show in May, and it’s still one of my favorites for 2012:

The Sycamore Street Press 2012 calendar was inspired by French pastries, featuring a twelve month wall calendar with a dozen illustrations, from macarons to éclairs – yum!

The Paisley Tree Press 2012 calendar comes with thirteen envelopes – you can use the cover and each month to send a sweet note to friends and family!

I always love the wood veneer calendars from Night Owl Paper Goods – this year they’re offering half a dozen adorable formats, from the critters desk calendar below to hanging wall calendars.

I love the modern illustrations and patterns on the 2012 calendars from SusyJack*.  Susy is also offering two formats this year – a hanging wall calendar and write-on wall calendar:

Linda & Harriett is offering two super limited edition 2012 calendars – a wall calendar inspired by watercolors and an adorable letterpress calendar (the bottom of each month detaches for use as a postcard!).

The Ilee calendar has been one of my favorites for the past three years – I can’t wait to receive my 2012 edition!

And last up for today, the Simplesong 2012 limited edition calendar features three months to a page, with a super fun color palette for each season.  So cute!

  1. I love the calendars! Hurray!

    I especially like calendars that have a little box for each day so that I can make small notes. However, I have a really hard time finding ones like that. If you find some in your calendar searches, please post them! Thanks!

  2. Love, love, love calendars! How can I stop?! I already have the big monthly rifle calendar and the big snow and graham calendar!

  3. Hi Rachelle! SusyJack is offering a write-on wall calendar, which you can find listed above. There will be another write-on wall calendar in the Part 2 tomorrow, and I’m sure we’ll continue to include other write-on calendars in follow on installments.

  4. Just bookmarked this site into my FAVS! So glad to find a site dedicated to the things that I love & collect! I have the 2011 ilee calendar & ordered the 2012 edition on 9/22 of course! She still has quite a few, but they can get hard to come by after this month readers, so order now! Every month is a delightful treat! I can’t wait to order some of the others posted here…how wonderful this all is & what magnificent taste you have dear!! <3 MEL
