[weekly mojo series] 2013 calendar ideas

One of my favorite things to do to prepare for the new year is to choose my calendar. There are so many great options to pick from, and I love how Etsy has made it possible to get gorgeously designed artwork on my calendars.
Of course, calendars make a great option for gift-giving too, especially when combined with some of your favorite family photographs. Persnickety Prints makes it easy to create a basic photo calendar with drag and drop templates.
Here's a round-up of some awesome calendar options.

We've got more designer options listed here.
Don't forget to check out our post on creating your own calendar! Until next time, keep the mojo flowin'!

Free 5x7 Card

I live amongst the creative.

Deena Rutter, designer at Design House Digital, was a year older than I in high school. 20 +/- years later, here I am, still in awe of her talents!

I haven't had much time to browse the web lately. Usually, I check in on my designer friends to see what they've been creating.
I miss it!
I've been printing cards, hundreds of them... and then this one came in.
Of course it was one of Deena's fabulous creations, and it printed perfectly on our pearl cardstock.

Not only did I have to share this beauty, I asked Deena if we could give it away:)

If you haven't created your Christmas Card yet--- get started! 
This .png 5x7 front/back card is one of my favorites!
If you're loving this design as much as I am- Deena has an entire coordinating Be Merry collection of papers, elements and goodies!

[weekly mojo series] December Daily

I'm sure you are all familiar with Ali Edwards' December Daily albums, right? Ali's been sharing this project with folks all over the internet for several years now, and there are tons of great paper and digital products that you can purchase to help you put together your own December Daily album.

Of course, I'm never together enough to create my album in advance, so it ends up being either something that I make as I go along, or something that I finally pull together in...April? May? Yeah.

So this year, I'm going simple. Digital. Preferably something that works with Instagram, since that's how I'll likely end up capturing most of my holiday memories. Here's a few quick and easy albums that I spotted that I think would make great options for simple holiday albums, so I can get back to what matters most: spending time with family.

 Lauren Reid's Insta Album v1 makes it simple to drop in your Instagram photos and then print and bind your pages. Available in both 4x6 and 3x4 size prints.
 Lauren Grier's templates are fun little 3x4 cards that can be paired with your favorite papers (the ones shown are just an example). These simple cards make it easy to record one thing each day during the holiday season. When you're finished, slip them into a couple of Project Life page protectors and add them to your album. Easy peasy!

 These two album templates by Peeps & Milo are so fun and funky! Even though these require a bit more time, I think the end result would be just adorable, especially if you like the paper-scrapped look without all the mess! (vol. 1 and vol. 2)
Of course, no list of mine would be complete without something from Liz on it. This album is absolute minimalist perfection. Liz's templates give you a great way to combine lots of photos on one page without sacrificing clean design. December (and Liz), you are definitely a fave!

Until next time, keep the mojo flowin'!
