Photo Calendars

IMG_0357 Calendars as gifts? Yes! These aren’t your typical wall calendars and are totally custom designed!

Every year a group of my close friends and I get together to have a Christmas dinner. In the past we have done secret santas or a yankee swap, but this year we decided to do a wine swap. This entailed each person brining a bottle of wine and an appetizer type food that paired well with it, so fun and tasty! So you are saying to yourself, what does this have to do with calendars? Well, I am a sucker for tradition and thought that each of my friends should be able to unwrap something small at our celebration. Two of my friends were married this year and the others all attended the fabulous wedding of Steph and Chris in New Orleans. So for Farran, one of the brides, I picked some great shots from her wedding and put together a desk calendar that she can look at each day for the next year and remember how special it was. Steph, the other bride, had a photo booth at her wedding, so I thought it would be fun to make her a calendar that featured pictures that came from the booth for each month to remind her of all the funny faces that were made behind the curtain. Finally, I used pictures from our New Orleans trip to make calendars for the rest of my lovely ladies, Kara, Chrissy, Manda, and Lauren. When I was designing these I started to think of all the other ways these could used as gifts…one year anniversary (it is paper after all), brides maids gifts, shower or wedding favors, parent thank you gifts, include with thank you notes, send as holiday cards…so many reasons to give a custom photo calendar!
