Free 2011 Calendar (& A Giveaway!)

Most of you smart people probably had your 2011 Calendars bought and filled-in by December of last year. I, on the other hand, just completed mine this weekend (8 days into the New Year!). And my procrastination actually paid off! I’d been eyeing some really cute options on Etsy when Elle from SWITCHEROOm emailed me about the FREE calendar she made for her readers.

I hopped over and was immediately smitten.

Cute, right?! I love the colors and all the modern patterns she used for the monthly headers. Sure you can find countless calendars online and in stores…but not many are FREE and available immediately from your own printer. I printed a desk-sized one specifically to help me stay organized with my blog posts (giveaways, guest blogging, post ideas…it really gets confusing for my simple brain). Here’s mine in action:

If you’d like one, click the button below and hop over to her blog. Leave a comment in her post and she’ll email you the high-res version to print on your own. I got a little carried away printing and binding them in different sizes, so I have 3 extras (5x7s) to share. (I even used hole reinforcement stickers! TWSS Oh geez, that was too easy, even for me!)

Leave me a cute and funny comment in this post, and I’ll choose 3 random winners this Friday to receive one! (I know, I’m giving away something you can get for free…but I already did all the work for you!)

And I know you noticed my blue Greek Key binder (and matching orange notebook), Emily tipped me off to those in her great post on Megan’s blog, about how she organizes her Magazine Inspiration files! Their cuteness, along with my new cute calendar, is really inspiring me to get organized and efficient!

Thanks for sharing, Elle!

  3. The calendar I'm using is not proving to be very helpful…too small! It does however match my purse, which makes up for a lot, making me happy when I pull it out while out and about!

    Great giveaway, great printable!

    I am SUCH a calendar girl (the organized kind, not the pin-up kind!) Even with a smartphone I rely on my calendar so that the whole family can see it! Call me old school. These are adorable!

  7. You want something cute and funny? Here's a joke my 4 yr old told me last night…

    Knock Knock.
    Who's there?
    It's me mommy – I can't reach the doorbell!

    I love the details you added to the calendar! Thanks for the chance! πŸ™‚

  8. Your too funny giving away a free calendar. The funny thing is that my printer is out of ink so I really could use one already printed out. Funny girl.

    Well, let's just be honest…I know, rare occasion…but I'm totally not going to print one of these out by my lonesome and *actually* plan stuff out…because we all know how well the "fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants" thing goes, right? So since you were awesome enough to do the *real* work, it would be perfect for me because then I might feel motivated enough to use a calendar…maybe. (c;

    Love the blog, Cassie girl! Cute giveaway!

    I lurve this calendar and have it hanging on my fridge in a page protector – quick fix to few magnets. I would so love a smaller one to organize my crafting/blogging that is severly lacking.

    If I don't win I suppose I can make my own small one like you did buuut my to-do list is already growing out of control. πŸ˜‰
