Planning 2014

My Grandma and I have a theory about time flying – the older you are, the faster it goes. Think back to how as a kid it took for-ev-er for Christmas to roll around, and now as an adult it’s like HOLY CRAP Christmas is three weeks away! Because when you’re under 10 you don’t have that many years under your belt and time feels incredibly spread out, but the older you get the shorter those yearly chapters become. Basically, that’s a long-winded way to say that there are only 29 days until the new year so you’d better start looking for a planner.

2014 Calendars – Part 1

We unofficially kicked off 2014 calendar coverage last week with the Bloggers Love Cats + Bloggers Love Dogs: A Calendar Fundraising Project, but in the name of all things official here we go! (Is it strange that I want at least ten more calendars, even though I designed two myself? I didn’t think so.) If you want to explore further, simply click on each image.

Bloggers Love Cats + Bloggers Love Dogs: A Calendar Fundraising Project

Bloggers Love-1-Design Crush

 

I couldn’t be more excited to finally reveal a little something I’ve been working on for the past month – Bloggers Love Cats and Bloggers Love Dogs: A Calendar Fundraising Project!

This was one of those ideas that came to me in the minutes before falling asleep one night, that I somehow magically managed to remember the next morning without having written down. That idea was to reach out to the incredible network of bloggers I’m a part of to create two calendars that would feature our much loved pets, with all proceeds going directly to The Humane Society of the United States. I decided to make both calendars downloads instead of printed in order to give every last dollar to the animals. You can choose from Bloggers Love Cats or Bloggers Love Dogs for $7 each or pick up both for $12!

 

Bloggers Love-2-Design Crush

Bloggers Love Cats features 13-months of felines from Sugar and Cloth, Joy the Baker, Design Crush, And Kathleen (also our cover model), Cupcakes and Cashmere, Paper & Stitch, Justina Blakeney, Fieldguided, Oh So Beautiful Paper, For Me, For You, TeenAngster, Lisa Congdon, and Jojotastic.

The Tea Calendar

Tea Calendar-1-Design Crush

 

Oh, how I wish I were one of the specially tapped business partners of Hälssen & Lyon who received one of these incredible Tea Calendars! Each day’s “page” is made from finely flavored, wafer-thin pressed tea leaves. The tea wafer can be detached, brewed, and enjoyed. The only thing that could possibly top this in my world would be The Coffee Calendar! (via Laughing Squid)
