Free 2009 Printable Calendar

2009 is over! But I have a new monthy-by-month, free printable calendar available here--check it out!

So, if you are like me, a couple of things are true for you today. 1) You are committed to giving handmade this year; and 2) you are in a panic because 3) you just realized you forgot about your sister-in-law or your third cousin; and 4) the person you forgot will be at your house within the next few hours.


What to do?! What to do!?

How about a lovely calendar? 2009 is almost here, after all. And though your local Big Box Bookseller™ will probably have loads of very nice ones to choose from, there's still time to make your own.

So here's my gift to you, Internet: A downloadable, totally free PDF calendar for 2009!

Each page features a wee illustration by moi and is 95% likely to have the correct dates on every page--what a bargain, no?

And, hey, even if you are morally and practically superior to me, and you have been finished preparing for the holidays since October, perhaps you've been neglecting yourself. Maybe YOU need a snazzy new calendar for your wall.

Putting this little guy together is a snap:

  1. Print the calendar on nice heavy-weight cardstock.
  2. Cut down the center of the calendar (at 4.25" to be exact).
  3. Fasten the pages together with a tiny binder clip or punch two wee holes at the top and "sew" the pages together with festive yarn or floss.

That's it!


If you print the calendar as a gift or keep it for yourself, I'd love to know--just drop by the comments to this post, and tell me what's what. While you're at it, you could make me feel better by telling me your worst last-minute crafter-disaster!

Update: If you like the calendar, you might like some of my other printables, too!

What a wonderful gift! Thank you for the calendar. As for last minute crafting, this is the first time in years I haven't been furiously cross stitching to finish a project I "knew" I had plenty of time to make. Hope your Christmas is joyful!

Cameron, I love this! So cute~I'm definitely going to be putting this up at work, which is a soulless governmental cube. So thank you!

I meant to handmake all gifts this year but things got kind of crazy with moving and travelling a lot for work. I did *buy* a lot of handmade stuff for gifts though, so I guess that's better than nothing!!

Hope you had a great holiday~

Thanks for the calendar. I am nothing like my sister, so I might not display as nicely as you suggested. Hope that is ok!
I love the bee stationary you made for court and the story that went along with it.

I loved how you have written your blog and the perspectives on it were dead on about it as well.
