2013 Chiot’s Run Calendar

November 13th, 2012

Finally, the fourth edition of the Chiot’s Run calendar is up and running. This year I decided to simplify things a bit and only choose one photo per month. It’s always hard to narrow them down. Luckily, this year I’ve been adding photos into a special folder throughout the year when I know one will perfectly sum up that month. As a result it took me much less time that it usually does.

Most of my friends and family already know they’ll be receiving one of these beauties for Christmas, in fact, I think they’d all be dissappointed if they didn’t.

I want to thank all of you who purchase this calendar, I get a small amount from each sale and this helps me keep this blog ad-free and it helps me pay the bills associated with this blog. Once again it’s available in Small and Large:

Small Calendar: 11″ x 17″ open (folds in half in the middle like a regular calendar).

Large Calendar: 13.5″ x 19″ has coils at the top so it’s one continuos sheet.

I even updated my inspirational nature quote calendar as well if you like that one.

There’s a discount coupon that you can use as well: Receive 20% 1-9, 25% 10-19, 30% 20+ off of your calendar purchase. This promotion ends November, 23 at 11:59 PM. (Coupon Code: CHRONICLE)

These will be gifted as part of my handmade holidays with my family. Technically I didn’t “handmake” them, but I did take the photos. I can get them printed up much cheaper than I could make them myself and they’re so much better as far as quality goes that I could do at home. I think they qualify as handmade!

As always, I do have a favorite month, though it certainly was a tough choice. I’d have to say that the lovely tulips in May is my favorite!

Which month do you like the best?

    I have been looking forward to the 2013 calendar debut. It doesn’t disappoint! It’s so hard to choose just one picture, I really love January, February, June and November. Thank you for another beautiful calendar Susy!

    I’m always partial to November since I’m a November baby [today being the B-day, har har har! What a perfect post to go with it!] so I’m going to gift myself with a calendar… yours are always so beautiful.

    But I also loooove April. Snowdrops are just… uugghh. Plus the hazy hilight from the sun…? perfection! ♥

    I can’t make up my mind, so I’ll say both April and December.

    December. We have a Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal that add some color to our winter.

    I’m always partial to a beautiful red cardinal in the snow. :) Such a lovely contrast.

    Tough choice, but I think January is my favorite. There’s something very peaceful about that photo. :-)

    Too many to choose a favorite. I am partial to the spider web though. Great job!

    January, September, October, and December. Maybe it is a good thing I can’t just pick one.

    I just received my calendar in the mail; I love it! I got the smaller size and the quality of the printing is great, the photographs are crystal clear. I love your blog and would be delighted to support it by purchasing a calendar each year! I don’t know if it’s a possibility, but I would love some horizontal lines to go with those vertical ones…something about crossing off the boxes day by day makes me happy. Thanks for the work you do, I too read your post each morning with a great cup of coffee.
