Marking Time

I think I might just be the original calendar girl. The new year officially begins for me when I hang the calendar. It must be a throw back to when my children were small and I was keeping up with ballet classes, basketball practice and orthodontist appointments. Mind you this was before IPAD's and really sophisticated cell phones. I used plain old Sharpies and sometimes stickers. The calendar helped me keep 4 children and one husband promptly organized. Not to mention I loved (and still love) all the wonderful choices!

How about you? Are you a calendar girl?

I love calendars. I buy them, fill them up with birthdays and appointments ... and then abandon them to the smart phone. I really must stop but there are too many I love.

just last night my husband asked if i
thought calendars were outdated.
"no way! my 'mom's agenda' is sold
out in every store."

i love all yours, too.

I am a calendar girl, in fact I posted about it this morning. Susan Branch has been my calendar provider for the last two years and I am waiting for my 2011 edition to arrive.
Happy calendaring in 2011, I love all the ones you are featuring especially the Lang, Mary Lake-Thompson edition. Her illustrations are always so crisp and concise.

Hi Lisa! I am definitely a calendar girl and borrowed your theme to write on today.. I enjoyed mentioning your blog on my post... I found I am very dependent on my calendar... you,\'ll have to read my blog to find out about my calendars!

Jennie said...

What a fun theme! Yes, I'm a calendar girl and forget using an online calendar. No, I want paper that I can doodle on, make extra notes and feel under my fingers. I get so much joy buying a calendar refill for my Dayplanner each year. I always buy a Flavia one so that I can be inspired and feel artsy even when I'm at work.

Hope your calendar is filled with love and joy in 2011!

Best wishes and high hopes,
Jennie and the Pretty Pekes

I am very much a calender girl. There is one hanging in the pantry, another in my office and finally a mini one in my purse. :)

Lisa, I am dying here because I was just thinking of doing the same post!! Yes, I am a calendar girl. Have to have it hanging on the wall at home and school. Mary Englebreit is usually my choice but this year I didn't buy it in time. They are sold out around here. Must go look for one of the cute choices you have shown here. :)

Laura said...

Yes I am.
Mine are hardback, red full size calendars that look like school grade books.
I have large hand writing and I love these.

I used to color code my girls activities on my calendar.
Remembering that made me smile!


Karen said...

I am! I love them all and never throw them away. I have them all the way back to when I was a teenager with a few missing here or there.
Great post! Loved this!!
Happy New Year my friend! Karen

I get a little Mary Engelbreit calendar EVERY year. No matter how "techy"I am... I still love a cute picture. :)
