Time Flies, Get a New Calendar

Along with new opportunities, resolutions and goals— we’ll call these traditional perks— a new year brings new calendars and planners, one of my biggest guilty pleasures.

For those looking to stray from your traditional, boring, black and white desktop calendar and personal planner, Etsy— an online marketplace to buy and sell handmade or vintage items, art and supplies— offers an array of unique and often one-of-a-kind items to start your new year off planned and organized.

Prices vary, depending on the seller. Another option for buyers are calendars that are formatted as downloadable PDF files, allowing buyers to simply pay online, then download their files to expedite shipping and handling.

Personally, I’m not willing to sacrifice my style to remain organized, so I opt for a more eclectic, quirky taste for all things organization and planning.

What Do You Think: Would you be more likely to remain planned and organized using items that more closely reflected your style?

Quirk #3,204: Paper goods and fabric make my heart sing.

If you’re in the market for invitations, paper goods, fabric, stationery, and anything cute, Ann Kelle may be the lady you’re looking for. Below you’ll find an assortment of her products, any and all of which look sweet enough to eat.

It all started in 2000. Well, to be fair, we probably need to go back a bit further to when nine year old Kelle Boyd was carting around sketches of her own line of children’s clothing and wedding dresses in her backpack. Fast forward to over a decade later, Kelle had long since traded in her colored pencils for a career in public policy. While working for the Mayor of Nashville (and a bit stressed), Kelle’s childhood dream was rekindled when she went to a local craft store to purchase art supplies as a stress reliever. Two years later, Kelle took a step of faith and launched Ann Kelle Designs. Her fresh and bright designs immediately caught the attention of the industry. A week following her debut, her designs were being presented to Target. (Ann Kelle, About)
