2012 Chiot’s Run Calendar

November 4th, 2011

I started working on my calendar last week hoping to have it up on November first. That didn’t happen, but I did get it up earlier than last year! It’s always tough choosing photos for each month, narrowing it down, deciding what direction to take, edible, flowers, etc. I’ve toyed with the idea of making a few different calendars, one featuring edible gardening, one featuring flowers & other things – maybe next year. For this year I’ll stick to the usual mix. Here’s the 2012 Chiot’s Run Calendar:

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: 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 also revised my Quote Calendar for 2012 as well, it’s also available in Small and Large.

Lulu just sent me a coupon that should get you 15% off the calendar. Use coupon code: NINCAL for 15% 1-9 calendars and code: TENCAL for 20% off 10 or more calendars. Coupon expires December 18, 2011. See Lulu homepage for details.

As hard as it is to narrow down photos for the calendar each year, I always seem to have one photo that’s my favorite from the season. This year was no different, December was my favorite, there’s just something wonderful about the sunlight in that photo that I really love! This year however, I’m especially fond of January and May, there’s just something about those two photos I really love!

What’s your favorite month?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
