Our Calendar

This is the calendar hanging on the wall at the schoolhouse. I also have the same one on our refrigerator at home. I love Mary Engelbreit's art. I love the colors she uses and how she pairs her creations with quotes. Did you know she colors her drawings with markers and shades with colored pencils. She says she is not very good with a paint brush...me either!

What calendar did you choose for 2009?

I have been looking for the Mary Engelbreit calender and the stores are out of them. She is my favorite artist next to my daughters! My Gabby (9) made me a calender and colored all the pictures herself. I love it!
Thank you for sharing with us. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

You know, come to think of it, we didn't really get a calender this year. I guess the only one I have is the little ulgy one from the feed store, a freeby at that. I love ME also, but I no longer take her Mag. I think I'll get us a Gooseberry Patch calender maybe.

Mine is the Peanuts Gang.....I love them! It was such a huge part of my childhood! Makes me smile when I look at it hanging on the refrigerator...:o) and I have a giant desk calendar for all the PTO Meetings, Car Pools, Rugby Practices, Band Bake Sales and my daughter's club meetings...the list is endless!

Yours is very beautiful. I love the little quotes. She is a wonderful artist's...I can't even draw stick people...lol!

I love Mary Engelbreit. I have a couple of statuettes I've collected of hers through the years. I loved the quote for January! What a hoot. My calendar? Tinkerbell, of course! Duh! ;0)

That calendar is way to cute! We are using a John Deere tractor calendar for 2009.

I LOVE ME! (not me Lisa--me Mary E) Her sayings aways make me smile. I am still working on mine--its one of those different scrapbook page for every month ones. Yeah--I'm hinking I don't even have to do January at this point.....

I found calendar in the target $1 bin and grabbed it. It hangs in the back hall where no one really sees it except me, but it does match the "tuscan" theme of my kitchen. The main calendar I use and that hangs on our fridge is a smaller one that the community mails out. Comes with a magnet on it, and lots of coupons, community events, and school closing dates. Handy dandy, that thing is!
