CC1Today’ calendar is one that mixes crafting skills with the need for a calendar for the new year, the 2012 Tea Towel Calendar Embroidery Kit from Purl Soho.

About the 2012 Tea Towel Calendar Embroidery Kit: “This 2012 calendar tea towel is both beautiful and functional for your kitchen! Each towel is made of 100% natural linen and is screen printed with water based inks. The tea towel has a hem at the top that is perfectly sized to hang by a dowel rod. Each kit includes one 100% linen tea towel measuring 27-inches by 16-inches, two needles, red embroidery thread, 6-inch embroidery hoop, instructions and stitch guide.”

I am pretty crafty and like a good project, but I am pretty sure I will not be able to complete a Tea Towel Calendar Embroidery Kit in time to ring in the new year, but I love the idea of it.

CC2I love calendars and every year look for a new one to make the year special.  But I have never really found a perpetual calendar that I like… until now.  I love the Sun Hill Perpetual Calendar from Orange Art.

About the Sun Hill Perpetual Calendar:  “A practical, beautiful organizational tool to help remember annual events such as birthdays and anniversaries. Each month has an original “icon” designed by Elisabeth Hyder.”

I may never have to buy another calendar.  Who am I kidding?  I love calendars!

CC3A good calendar can be a work of art.  Heck, I if you are going to have something on your wall or desk all year, you had better like looking at it.  I like calendars featuring the work of a favorite artist.  Over the years I have had many calendars featuring the works of great artists.  One of my favorites was a desk calendar with the art of Henri Matisse.

So I was thrilled to find a new Matisse calendar featuring his cut-outs as part of TASCHEN’s Cloth Calendar series.

About TASCHEN’s Cloth Calendar series: “TASCHEN’s Cloth Calendars are high-quality, hardcover cloth-bound books featuring one week and one full-page image per spread. Keep your days bright, your mind cultivated, and your life organized with one of these lavish diaries. Your desk will thank you.”

I can’t wait for my Matisse Cut-out Calendar to arrive so I can admire it throughout 2012.
