2010 custom calendar giveaway

 
Rachel came to me a few weeks ago with a project in mind.  She had been searching for the perfect day calendar to replace her old one with no luck.  We are both the same type of person who need to see things written in front of us.  We make lists.  Lots and lots of lists.  Groceries.  Ideas for photoshoots.  The next great place to travel and what restaurants to check out while there.  Birthdays. Books we should read...

So we collaborated.  She brought over her old calendar and we redesigned a new version.  She told me what she wanted and I worked on a design that followed the old calendar with an updated style.  The months go through February of 2011, and look at the right side of each month, an entire page of lines for notes!  Plus a list of all the holidays and sections in the back for new books to read, login info, date ideas, etc.

Fortunately for us, the printer messed up on the first batch (minor margin issues) and that sparked an idea.  A GIVEAWAY!  2 in fact. 


To enter leave a comment on this post.  DOUBLE your chances by leaving one on Rachel's blog too.  We'll pick winners and mail you this lovely calendar asap.  

: Entries can be made until Tuesday, Feb 23 midnight PST :

ode to the calendar,
light as air,
here to organize my life
so i can get back to being a wife!
and with three kids in tow
this calendar i will stow
as i go through my day
and buy my goats some hay

Elizabeth said...

I LOVE this! I am like you...I must write things down by hand in a tangible planner, none of this Google Calendar stuff! Hope I win!
