My New Desk Calendar

I'm a fan of Mary Englebreit. I absolutely adore her illustrations and inspirational messages. Her engagement calendars feature delightful artwork and a quote for each week of the year.

Every year is a different theme. In 2011 it's "Hold Tight" and all the illustrations show the characters hugging, holding, snuggling, dancing, etc. The inspirational message for my birthday week is "It takes a long time to grow an old friend." And it shows two girls hugging each other at a birthday party.

In the past I've enjoyed various desk calendar designs: Dilbert, The Far Side, Blue Dog...but I've always liked Mary Englebreit the best.

I love the "hold tight" theme! I bet it will give you warm fuzzies all year long. (I can't believe we're coming to the end of the 2010 calendars!)

As for my calendars, it's hard to beat The Far Side.

Hi, Jenny. The year is going by so fast! I agree, The Far Side is great! I love Larsen's humor.
