Free December Desktop and iWhatever Calendar

Oh my! It's December!!! Where has the year gone?! I just can't believe how quickly the months pass!
Your phone/tablet/desktop (even your refrigerator!) is probably ready for a change, so here you go....

 A nice sparkly (VERY green) calendar to save to your phone or tablet's lockscreen. These are big pictures (digitally speaking) so they print nicely, too, if you'd like one to hang on a bulletin board or the frig. Right, Grandma? 

This one has some space for all the desktop icons that seem to accumulate....

And this one is a "Just-in-case" calendar. There is a little extra background around it, just in case your phone or tablet likes to blow up pictures on your lockscreen. The extra background helps it fit better. Yeah, I know it sounds weird, but trust me. One of the iWhatever updates made lockscreen pics so big that the calendar didn't fit. This seems to work. Like I said--weird.

So there you go. Now your electronics are ready for all the upcoming festivities!
Have a Wonderful Holiday Season! Thanks for stopping by!

Free November Desktop and iWhatever Calendar

It's November! We have turned back the clocks and traded flip flops for knee boots. Pride and Prejudice is loaded on my phone AND my Nook. Yes, that's right. The first cold dreary November day will find me curled up sideways in my big chair-and-a-half, reading Jane Austen. Again. 

So of course I stuck with my tradition of using the Jane Austen font for this month's calendar. 

Here is one for your desktop...

...and a version with a little extra space, just in case your phone or tablet enlarges the big calendar (at the top of the post) too much...

If you'd like to make your own, here are the days and dates in the Jane Austen font:

Now that your electronics are feeling pretty, you can load them up with some nice romantic happily-ever-after books so you can read ANYWHERE. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey! Long time, no see, right? ;) I have a calendar ready for you and it's ONLY October 2nd! lol And this time I even have the extras! Here's the full-sized version:

 Here is one for your desktop:

This one has a lighter background that is less busy, just in case the leafy background is too much with your desktop icons:

And finally, one with a little extra background to help it fit on your phone's screen a little better.

There you go! Enjoy! I know my phone is very happy to get rid of the May calendar. Thanks for stopping by! See you next time!

Free September Calendar

I know, I know.... One third of September is in the history books. But if I don't post this calendar, I may never make another one. I made this one a couple of weeks ago. I'm not sure why I felt like red, white, &blue, but I did. Once the calendar was finished I never could find the time to post it! I was about to blow it off (What's one more month?) when I realized that it is September 11th. What better day to give away a red, white, & blue calendar?! Sorry, but there are no extras this month: no desktop version, no cell phone version, no-days-and-dates-only-so-you-can-make-your-own version. Hopefully I will be back in October with all of those goodies!
Have a great month. Thanks for stopping by!

My mother-in-law's Google notebook isn't playing nicely with the calendar that I posted from my iPad, so here it is again from my desktop pc.  Let's see if this makes a difference....

Yes, I know it looks exactly the same, but you know how picky our computers can be sometimes.
I'll be back in a couple of weeks with a whole slew of October calendars for you! See you then!

Free May iWhatever and Desktop Calendar

Do you remember the movie "Overboard" with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell? Goldie's character is a very wealthy, pampered woman who falls off her yacht, suffers memory loss, and is convinced by Kurt Russell (a single father) that she is his wife and mother to his three rowdy boys. At one point she is so overwhelmed with her responsibilities that he comes home to find her sprawled in a chair muttering gibberish. That is how I felt by the time Friday arrived this past week. And then I realized I hadn't even thought about a calendar! I did not punt like I did last month. This is a new calendar, all hearty-flowery-blingy for Mothers' Day. I am, however, going to punt right now. I'm sure you all know what to do. ;)

One for your desktop...

and one for your phone/tablet...

Hopefully my job will have settled down a bit by the first of June and I will have the calendar ready for you BEFORE the month begins!
Have a wonderful May! Thanks for stopping by!

April iWhatever & Desktop Calendar

Time for your new calendar! 

Ok, ok, so we are already a day into April, but give a gal a break. I have been working at my REAL JOB--you know, when you go to a place at a specified time each day, perform your assigned tasks, then leave at a specified time (if your tasks are complete), and after a couple weeks of this routine, you are paid for your time and effort. I've been working more hours than I am accustomed to working in a week and it's taking a while for me to adjust!

I was looking back through past calendars for ideas when I came to last April's calendar and I liked it so much that I decided to use it again. I hope no one minds a re-run! 

That being said, here you go....

Now, if you need open space for your desktop (or laptop) icons, here is the version for you....

Sometimes iWhatevers don't play well with others, so here is a version just for them. It is sized down to fit on the screen a little better.

And finally, if you would like to design your own calendar, here is a copy of the days and dates for you in a nice font that reminds me a little of the numbers on old timey baseball jerseys. All that is missing is the swirly swish underneath. Very timely, right? You do know that Baseball begins in just a few days, don't you? 
Go Cards! 
Go Royals! 
Yes. I cheer for BOTH!

Thanks for stopping by! See you next time!

Free March iWhatever and Desktop Calendar

Time for a new calendar!!! Hopefully the new month will bring us some nice warmer weather. Don't the daisies and butterflies feel hopeful? The calendar above will work for your phone screen, or you can even print it and hang it on the refrigerator! 

This one is perfect for a computer desktop. There's lots of empty space around the edges for icons.

And if you don't feel like daisies and butterflies, here is a chalkboard calendar you can use to design your own!

That's it for now--short and sweet. Thanks for stopping by!

February iWhatever Calendar and Desktop

I do believe this is the latest I have ever put up a calendar! Sorry for the delay. I will get right down to business!
Here is a lovely calendar that will fill your screen, or can be printed:

This one has lots of open space around the calendar, so it works well as a desktop background:

This one has the open space at the top and bottom, so  it might work better on some phones:

And here is a version of the days and dates that you can use to make your own pretty calendar if you don't care for any of mine!

Now your phone can stop nagging about having an out-of-date calendar!
Thanks for stopping by!

January iWhatever Calendar and Desktop


I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable time ringing in 2015 last night!  We were quite the party poopers, welcoming the new year from the sofa while watching "Guardians of the Galaxy." I'll settle for living vicariously this year. Our son Cole is in Auckland, New Zealand, the first major city in the world to welcome 2015. The new year began for them at 5 a.m. Missouri time!

This month's calendar features a section of the quilt my mother-in-law just made for us. I took a picture of it to use as the background. Isn't it beautiful?! The colors are a little off because it was cloudy the day I took the pictures. Of course it was cloudy! I think we had three--seriously, THREE!--sunny days the entire month of December! Anyway--it was cloudy and I just couldn't get enough light in that room, so the center of the quilt looks like a deeper blue than it actually is but the colors around the edges are pretty close to the real thing. The quilt is called "Storm at Sea," which makes sense with all the different shades of blue and the criss-crossing wavy lines. Lori is meticulous with the details on all the quilts she makes and it pays off. Each one is a work of art!

OK. So--here is a background for your desktop with lots of space for all those pesky icons that pile up on you:

And here is one for your phone if the big one up top is too big. Did you try the smaller one in December? How did it work for you? Let me know if I need to tweak anything else. I'll get to it eventually. ;)

If you would like to design your own calendar, here are the days and dates I started with...

...but why go to all that trouble when there are such pretty ones here, just waiting for you to click and save?

That's it for now! I think it's time for a nap. I mean, geez, I did stay up past midnight last night!

Thanks for stopping by!
