New Year - New Calendar - Giveaway!!!

I love the start of the new year when you have a fresh new calendar to fill with the next year's happenings. I thought I would share with you my 2009 calendar and notebook.

As I was leaving the office of President of the guild, it is traditional to give a small gift to each person who served the guild as a committee chair or officer. I decided to make steno book covers for each of them. I ended up making 40 of these in December. This is one that I kept. I use it to make to-do lists. Not sure if I ever do what is on the to-do lists but if I write it down, there is at least a chance I will do it. If I don't write it, I won't do it for sure.

This has been one of my favorite gifts to give this last year. I have made more that 50 of them during the year. I still have a few left that I have not given away so if you want to be put in a drawing for one, just comment on this post and I will draw a name on New Years Day.

I love everything black and white and have now fallen in love with it accented by yellow.

My friend Jan makes wonderful notebook covers - see the one she made for me at this post. Recently, she made some that cover a calendar. I bought this one from her. It is black and white and accented with little yellow birds. I made the steno book to coordinate with it. It will be fun to schedule my days in the calendar and then write my to-do lists in the matching steno book. All I need is a black and white tote bag to carry them in.


  1. I have been in love with b/w/y lately. DH bought me a fat quarter bundle for Christmas. I loved them so much I stitched them into a quilt on Christmas day. I would love to win this note book cover!

  2. Love that notebook cover!
    what a wonderful giveaway , can't believe you have made 50 of them!
    I LOVE yellow and how it plays with the black and white perfect!
    Happy New Year.

  3. Don't put me in the drawing as I already have one of your beautiful steno book covers. I just wanted to drop in and tell you how much I love mine - I use it for my quilting to-do lists! Thanks again!

  4. What a beautiful notebook cover. I would love to win one.

    Happy New Year!


  5. Love the black and white...and 50 of them?? WOW!

  6. Wow! I didn't know they still made steno. books. Learn something new each day. Guess I need to shop at other stores besides quilting shops. LOL. Please put my name in your great give-away. I love making lists. I love black and white.

    Happy New Years!
