2012 calendar love – part 2 of 2

28 Oct

Did you fall in love with a calendar yet? I’ve gathered a few other favorites to share. In no particular order…

This calendar begs to live on my kitchen wall.

Find it at Lizzy Clara.

Too cute – I could see these images framed in a nursery (but still mature enough to grace your office wall).

Find it at Mademoiselle Yo‘s Etsy shop.

This is almost too easy. Each year Paper Source comes out with a fab original calendar. This is their 2012 version.

One of my favorite Twitter and Instagram accounts, Kate Spade just makes me happy. This calendar does it’s job – and makes me love my Kate Spade even more.

The last one isn’t EXACTLY a 2012 calendar – it’s a birthday calendar. My grandma Verda has one, and she manages to remember EVERY SINGLE BIRTHDAY with the help of this calendar. Me, I rely on Facebook, and sometimes miss birthdays of those I love. I’m hoping that this fairly-adorable birthday calendar helps me to be better at birthdays.

That’s it… for now!

Cute DIY decor from around the web

I thought this would be a good opportunity to share some of the fantastic decor finds I’ve come across in the last week. It’s part link-love, part inspiration aggregation. Hope you enjoy this soon-to-be regular feature!

Easy and adorable paper flags via oh! PARTY. Are these not the cutest cupcake/drink flags ever? They’d look great with striped paper straws too!

Fabric poms are adorable! Make a bundle of these and stuff them in a jar. Instant decor – thanks to Wildflowers and Whimsy.

This basic white jar has been spruced up with.. masking tape! Jessica at How About Orange is a brilliant crafter – this technique could easily be used on water or wine glasses, candle holders, mirrors, etc.

Did those get your creative juices flowing or what?

I’m just in love with Bake it Pretty – so when I placed a recent order, I ordered a few extra grab bags to give away as gifts. Of course I had to have a grab bag for myself. It was packed full of darling cupcake liners, a few paper straws, some bamboo spoons (perfect to take and toss), a fun cake topper and some yummy candy with which to top cupcakes. An absolute score!

Because I’m feeling generous this fine day, one of those grab bags could be yours!
