2011 Calendar Designs, Part 8

It’s always a little bit tough getting back into the swing of things after a long holiday weekend, but talking about super cool calendars definitely makes things easier. This is it, my final 2011 calendar design roundup, and what a collection of beauties we’ve had this year, don’t you think? Because there are still so many great designs that I want to feature, today’s roundup is going to be a little on the super-size side, but there’s lots of pretty so I hope you won’t mind. And, if you’re looking for even more awesome calendars, check out every calendar that I’ve featured this calendar season.

The calendar features six pages of poladoodles (two months per page), and a dotted line on the back allows you to create Polaroid Spectra-sized art prints that you can use to decorate with when you’re finished with the calendar.
