Cool 2012 calendarsAm I the only one who feels like the new year snuck up on them? 

I still haven’t bought my 2012 calendar–despite the fact that CMP has already found this beautiful printable calendar and this fabulous calendar for kids. But wait, there’s more!

There are so many beautiful calendars out there to be had, and now that it’s January there are great sales to take advantage of. 

Plus 2012 sounds like such a nice year already — I think it deserves a pretty calendar in its honor, don’t you? So here I present, 12 for ’12. Some of them are even free. — Roxanna

The Last Calendar You Will Ever Need
finally, we have The Last Calendar You Will Ever Need*. You may
have heard that the world will end on December 12, 2012. Something about
a Mayan calendar or something? Whether you take this prediction
seriously or not, we think that a 355 day calendar ending in
mid-December is a very clever thing indeed. Who gets any work done in
the last 10 days of the year, anyway?
