It’s calendar season (yay!) and, over the next few weeks, I’ll be rounding up my favorite calendars from across the style spectrum, starting with this bunch of sweet, illustrated designs. I say this every year, but I really DO wish that I had room on my walls for, say, 25 or so calendars because there are just so many great designs.
1. Foxes in Love Mini Desk Calendar | Paper Sparrow 2. Oversized Wall Calendar | One Canoe Two 3. Paris Perpetual Calendar | Pei Design 4. Owls Wall Calendar | The Fox and The Teacup 5. Whale Wall Calendar | Gingiber 6. Dream Big Wall Calendar | Pintachan for 1973 7. Mini Wall Calendar | JooJoo 8. Die-Cut Owl Desktop Calendar | Night Owl Paper Goods

These stylish holiday return address stamps by Lush Prints are calling my name. Not only are the stamps pretty, they’re also practical, especially if you have lots of Christmas cards to address. I’m loving pretty much every design in the bunch, but I have to say that the kitty cat and dog designs are my favorites. So cute!

I love it when the worlds of food and paper collide, especially when the results are as awesome as these DIY letterpress and die cutting food gift + canning sets from Williams Sonoma’s Agrarian collection. The line, which features food-themed letterpress plate sets and box and packaging dies, is perfect for home canning enthusiasts and would also be wonderful for creating beautiful packaging for food gifts this holiday season.
Williams Sonoma also carries the Evolution craft tool (aka the Rolling Machine), which can be used with both the plates and dies, as well as the Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress Platform. Ooh, I’m so excited just thinking about all of the pretty goodies that can be created with this fun, foodie collection!
