Do you like personalized calendars?

For many years now, I've made personalized calendars for myself and our grown children. I use photos of the family and print everyone's birthdays and anniversaries. I write EVERYTHING on my calendar, so it becomes a journal of sorts. Plus, the pictures are great to keep also. I use VistaPrint (here in the US) and have always been happy with their price and quality. It's too close to Christmas now, but you might want to consider the calendars next year. Merry Christmas!

I do these for family and friends every year - but just realised I didn't make one for myself. I use Snapfish

That's a good site. Some are definitely more user-friendly than others!

@1creekgirl I do a yearbook of our best photos every year and once I've uploaded them for the book, I have them all in place to do the calendars.

There are several online sites that are good to use.

For some years I used to make calendars with photos of the landscape around us and sell them. I've never made calendars like the ones you describe. It's a good idea.

There was a time when I made family birthday/anniversary calendars. Our family is so large that it has gone the wayside. They did appreciate them as I saw them placed in their homes. Helped out those that have CRS when it comes to birthdays, etc.

What site did you use? Some are rather complicated, but VistaPrint is pretty easy.

This sounds like a great idea. My aunt probably does that for her children. She is always sending pictures to our family. I love getting the older photos from her of my grandparents and her, my daddy and the other siblings and cousins when they were growing up.
