So I just decided the other day I was going to start a new series this year about things I’m noticing here and there and it’s sort of like the the “I Spy” game but instead I’ll say “Eye Spy:…” because sometimes I like to think I’m so clever. :) This week’s obsession is letterpress calendars, and I’ve been bookmarking several for this brand new year.
I always always forget what the date is. I mean, I know what day it is most of the time, but I’m terrible with remembering the actual date. I like to keep a little calendar in front of me at my desk to keep myself informed. I suppose I could just look at my phone or get up and go look at the big calendar in the kitchen or click over and check my Google calendar. But I prefer the idea of a small calendar to keep me in the know and also because some talented artist took the time to sketch and create and press something completely lovely on beautiful paper to represent the year and I find them irresistible.
Last year I bought one from 1Canoe2 and here is their 2012 version. Playful illustrations that change from month to month, and I love that the desktop calendar sits in its own wood stump. Talk about clever.
