Don’t look now, but 2011 is rapidly approaching… (and a giveaway lies below)

As I was putting in my own holiday print orders, I started thinking about what else I could give Arann that would be creative and inspiring.

So I decided to make a calendar, with the hopes that the best photos and memories of 2010 will inspire us to be even more creative and adventurous in 2011.

In my search for calendar making companies, I found this cool site that not only lets you make a calendar for yourself, but it also lets you share your calendar with other people too.

But because people generally like to have their calendars before the next year begins that means I need to share my creative surprise calendar for Arann now.

So my creative surprise for Arann is no longer a surprise, but at least maybe it can be a creative surprise for someone you love.

It just so happens that I ordered a couple of extras. And in the spirit of giving back, I would love to give away a calendar, as a thank you for reading my blog. I am always so completely shocked and amazed when people tell me they read my blog. And I get even more excited and inspired when people leave comments.

So if you would like your very own copy of ‘The Best of 2010 Just in Time to Inspire Us in 2011’ calendar, please leave a comment below by midnight on December 24th.

I will announce the winner on Christmas Day.

If you are not a gambling person, or you’re like me and you hate waiting, you can order your own copy right now just click here to go directly to the store.

  2. Fun stuff Paige. Thanks for sharing!


  3. You ruined Christmas, but in the best way. Do I win. I hope I win.


  4. I already bought mine. But I wanted to comment anyway and say you RULE. i’ll remove myself from the potential winner pool however. BTW, you rule.


  5. I have to comment on the April option. I love the pig head because this year my hens have reinstated the pecking order and I turned 70 – so lots of discussions of life and death in my head. If I have to dispatch one of my Girls, I need to do it myself (as my friend says ‘A very good life and one bad day’). Can I do it? April will help me along the path, perhaps.
    I love the calendar, every bit of it, there is something to contemplate in each month’s photo. Thank you for putting this together!
