Giveaway: Decoylab Wall Calendar

One of my favorite local KC artists is Maiko of Decoylab. She makes amazing pieces like laser wood and acrylic clocks, laser brooches and necklaces (of which I own a bazillion!) and other beautiful crafted goods. The fact that such world-class talent is right here in my town often tickles me.

She showed me her large wall calendar $26 and I said it would be an awesome piece to have here on The Desk and then time got away from us and here it is the end of January! So, we decided, since not everyone is as prompt about getting organized for the new year, we could host a giveaway so the next 11 months could be beautiful and organized.

Maiko has kindly offered to giveaway one of her 2017 Wall Calendars. It is a simple, functional calendar that features large dates that can be read from across the room.

Full moon stickers and a large bulldog clips are optional. Calendar starts from October 2016 to December 2017.

  • Features:
    • Size 11×17
    • Large dates visible from afar (Date height 1.37″)
    • Plenty of space underneath the dates to jot down important dates ( 1 inch height)
    • Ships flat
    • Printed on 70lb text weight paper – same as copy paper weight
    • 100% post consumer waste paper
    • The paper color is slightly off white
  • Optionals:
    • 15 full moon stickers (full moon dates included)
    • 3 inch chrome bull dog clip

If you don’t want to wait to see if you win the giveaway, you can order one today. I did because I still have a sorry-looking free calendar hanging on my wall from LAST YEAR and I needed to remedy the situation ASAP. While you’re there, you might want to consider one of her amazing clocks. I’m partial to the Cuckoo Style A because it has squirrels on it. One of the most popular items is the DIY Western Auto sign which is a beacon on our downtown skyline that Decoylab turned into a desktop 3D bamboo kit you can assemble, paint and build yourself.

  1. One of my goals was writing in my Hobonichi every day. Unfortunately I haven’t been doing too well… Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I had planned to organize my office to begin the new year (pens, notebooks, and books everywhere!), but that hasn’t happened yet. 11 more months to go, right?!

  3. Not surprisingly, I have put off procrastinating once again in 2017. Oh, and cleaning some of my favorite fountain pen nibs.

  4. Eating healthy continues to stay at the top of my resolutions list. I’ve slipped up but always trying to live by the motto “if it doesn’t come from the ground or have a mother…don’t eat it!”

  5. One of my many goals was to better organize my finances. I’m sure I’ll get around to it at some point, right?

  6. I became a new grandmom in October and I haven’t created the right place to record the milestones she reaches – need to consolidate the emails, texts, and sticky notes 🙂

  7. I love the Cuckoo Style A and the Animal Friends clocks – that Animal Friends would be fantastic in our play room!

  8. Believe it or not but I’ve been procrastinating on making a New Year’s resolution. I know there are a few I could make and most likely keep but I’m still holding out. I know there’s something I’ll think of that’s just “it”, ya know?

  9. I’ve been pretty good about writing in my Hobo, but not quite every day. By the way,I really like the 6 full rows on this calendar that go on into the next month.

  10. I’ve been procrastinating starting a blog… and also buying a nice big wall calendar so I can mark down the days I have left to finish my dissertation!

  11. I am behind in cleaning! Made a lot of progress the other week but is (was) my goal to go through everything in the house this month and I don’t think I’m going to get it all done, maybe next month….

  12. I’d love to get one of the beautiful animal clocks, but this calendar is so minimalist and beautiful as well.

  13. I’m not sure I’m a super procrastinator or super organized; probably just regular type. However, I have been unintentionally batching my journal entries: I do them a few days at a time. Still, it’s my first real journal since I was 9 or so, and love at first write with a Hobonichi 2017. Eventually I’ll do these every day… Thanks for hosting the giveaway — I’ll definitely have to check out your friend’s store!

  14. I have been procrastinating on some things on my To-Do list like clearing up some of our closets!

  15. I’ve been trying to finish editing my sister’s wedding video for a while now and started right before the new year…it’s still not done

  16. Love this calendar! My daughter purchased a similar one at a craft fair this fall and I was secretly jealous! I am SOOOO far behind on setting up my new 2017 files. I have nowhere to put all the paper! YIKES! Thanks for the give away!

  17. Same as some of the others, I intended to write in my journal every day and I’ve yet to write anything! January is almost over, yikes!

  18. The Forest Animal Clock is absolutely beautiful!

    However, this minimalist calendar is also gorgeous in its simplicity.

  19. I have some major organizing to do. It seems to be an annual resolution, but sadly I am making very little progress! My other resolution, however I am doing very well at… and that’s to continue going to the gym every other day! I started that in June, and so far I am sticking to it!

  20. I’ve procrastinated on donating unused but usable items. I’ve got the large boxes worth scattered throughout my home just waiting to find a good be home.

  21. I love the typography and possibility of drawing all over this stylish calendar. Count me in! What I have procrastinated are return cards for the lovely people that sent me holiday cards in December. Soon.
