That's going on my Christmas list. Unless I just order it for myself first...

Same here. That is my debate. Do I ask for it for Christmas or just order my copy for myself today?

same internal argument going on here!!! The angel on my left shoulder says "wait and let your children buy it for you...they'd love to buy you that...don't spoil their fun at Christmas" while the ol' devil on my right shoulder (who is also responsible for my UAS) says "Nah buddy, you need it now, buy it for yourself....why wait, it's so cheap, go oooon...you know you can't resist"...ooops, I think I feel a little giddy...where's my medication again?........:o

Buy one, hide it or take it to work, and let the relatives buy you another one for home! It's a good cause. :)

I saw that just a few minutes ago too and thought the same thing.

Why wait 'til they are all gone to maybe get one from relatives? Get it now.

Lori -- that's an awesome calendar. Really nice job.


Took my own advice. Just ordered it. Yay!

That's fine with me. My work is done. Cafe Press does the rest. All I will have left to do is send a check to the Ukuleles For Kids group. That's the fun part!

Lori, that calendar is absolutely wonderful. What beautiful pictures! Now, what to do with a calendar (we have totally gone electronic). hmmmmmm There has to be a need somewhere!!!

That's hi-larious, Allen! But I still likes me an "analog" calendar, or "hard" calendar, or a "land" calendar, or whatever they're called now. Of course, we still read "paper" news in my house, even though the LA Times still hasn't quite figured out how to keep the ink on the page and not all over my hands after I've checked to see where a movie is playing. We're kinda funny that way. We even prefer to go to actual "theaters" to look at these moving picture shows with all the surroundy sound and stuff, as opposed to, say, viewing them on 3-inch "smart" phones with a pair of ear buds. Ear buds. I do get a lot out of this new fangled technolgy, though. I am here afterall...

Hey, I know what you mean. But even though some people call me "gadget girl", I still like to have a calendar on the wall near my computer. I have even decided it was easier to keep track of work hours by writing on a paper calendar... this is from someone that used to track all her work hours/ day on a Palm Pilot! Those old Palm Pilots don't get used these days much (not even sure if I could sync it with my Mac anymore) and I don't have to worry about losing data if the paper calendar crashes.

For any of you out there who want to buy for a group, you will get a discount if you purchase 15 or more calendars at once. The price is reflected in your cart total. So, if you have a big uke group, you can get the calendar for $11 each + $14 shipping (for the group of 15).

I ordered one of these and got it today. It looks really nice but I have a question. On my copy, the holes to hang the calendar is on the bottom of each page. If I hang it like a normal calendar using those holes on the bottom of each page, it looks pretty bad on the wall since the calendar is pretty long and half of it is white/blank (back page of the previous month). Am I missing something? I guess either way I'll figure out a way to hang it. Just wondering if mine had the hole punched in the wrong place or is that just how these calendars are designed.

I just got mine today and the hole is at the top under the wire binding (like it is supposed to be). Cafe Press has satisfaction guaranteed, so I think you should get a free replacement for that one. I am pretty happy with the way they turned out.

Cafe Press is Print-on-Demand, so don't worry about them running out. There is no inventory. You order... they print.

Thanks for the tip. The hole location on your calendar makes much more sense. I'll look into getting a replacement then.

This is such an eco-friendly approach to printing! Can't wait for mine to arrive... :nana:
