Today is Tuesday January 4, 2011. How did that happen? Are you the type of person who bought your 2011 calendars before Thanksgiving?
When I was a kid one of my mother’s friends always gave me the same Christmas gift – a calendar for the coming year. I’m sure I was polite upon receiving it but inside I was totally flatlining. A kid needs a calendar like a fish needs a bicycle. What kid wants something practical? What kid has any real concept of measuring and managing their time? That’s the whole point of being a kid…don’t you miss those blissful days? I certainly do.
If you have to grow up and keep track of your time, then you might as well have a calendar or two that make you smile. One of my favorite gifts this year was a sweet little calendar my sister bought for me on Etsy by the nantucketmermaid shop. It’s hanging in my kitchen. It makes me happy and reminds me of my sister and many happy days we’ve spent on the island of Nantucket.
If you’re still looking for a 2011 calendar here are some ideas.

Or perhaps you want the illustrator and internet darling Camilla Engman’s 2011 calendar.

Do you have any favorite calendars to share? I’m still looking to buy one or two more.
