Calendar Time!

Several times last year I missed important birthdays! One of the reasons, I finally discovered, was that I haven't been keeping my calendars like I used to. I don't know why I moved away from my routine especially since it was working for me a knucklehead, lol. But I have a fresh start this year.
One of the calendars I have kept for years, is this mini CD version that always sat by the computer. (I make new ones each year, of course) I also make them to give and sell every year and have made more 2009 calendars than any other previous year. I have been cranking these out for 3 months now and thought it was time to post them.
They fit into a mini CD case where the lid folds back to act like an easel. I order them in bulk from this site. I really like their compact size, the inserts are 3 1/2" by 3 5/8". The shipping can more than double the order so I get a couple hundred at a time.
I print the calendar up onto Stampin' Up's whisper white and all 13 pieces fit into the case. These make perfect little gifts to give and I have repeat customers looking for their refills each year. Since I mass produce them, I chose my stamps carefully and usually do not go with images that require much coloring. I think this years images combine to make my favorite calendar to date. Most of the images are SU, with a CHF and some dollar stamps thrown in.

It is not too late to create your own 2009 calendar!
If you are interested in purchasing a copy of my inserts, I am making them available for $2.99. I will email out the JPEG files which you can print directly at home. There are 4 files in total, one is the cover and the other 3 are the months. I will also give you my cutting instructions to fit the mini case.
I also have a limited number of calendars with cases, pre-cut and un-stamped, that I can send out. Those are $5.00 plus shipping.
If you are interested, email me and I can send out a Paypal invoice.
Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
