Well, the calendar is finished. I ended up doing 2 versions, due to the controversy on the March Chuck Moore photo. Thanks to helpful Chuck, I have a G-rated version for those of you that might prefer it.
The cover choice became the Mike DaSilva uke, which had many votes, and is a good descriptive representation of the contents of the calendar. Thanks for your feedback on the cover choices. If you would like to buy a calendar, here are the Café Press links.

You can see a preview of all the calendar months on the Café Press website.
The calendar price is $19.99 USD at my store. For each calendar sold, $3.00 goes to "Ukuleles for Kids" program. http://www.californiaukulelefestival.com/ukulelesforkids/schools.php
You might see a different price if you are just browsing the Marketplace section of Café Press. Last year that price was $5 higher, and the commission collected was lower. So, use the links above to get the best price, and the best donation for the "Ukuleles for Kids" program.

I am not sure if offering 2 versions is too confusing, but I figured enough people were worried about it that it was worth a try to keep everybody happy.

aaaah!!! I thought it was #389...for some reason I'd always had it in my mind that one was Chap's. Ohhh it's beautiful Lori, well, they both are!!!

Lori - I'm so glad you made a G-rated one. Now I can get one to hang in my office at school and maybe get students talking about ukes without having to worry or pull it down for a month. Chuck's work is gorgeous regardless of the subject matter but I would rather avoid parental ire whenever possible.

Thanks for making us a calendar!

Ordering it right now... with the $5.25 shipping charge Cafe Press gets, it is probably the most expensive calendar I'll be getting - most of the other non-profit related ones are $8-10 less, but they have mostly wildlife and environmental themes - Ukuleles are more of a mental health issue for me.

Thanks for doing this, Lori!

If you buy more than one, the shipping gets cheaper per calendar. I ordered 5 and shipping was $7.25. If you have ukulele playing friends, you should gang up your orders and you will save on shipping. This is a print-on-demand press, and is more expensive than what the Sierra Club and other big name concerns can get doing traditional large scale print runs. The print-on-demand press allows for anybody who has an idea, to make it a real product without a big outlay of funds, and without the potential problem of having hundreds of unsold copies left over. That convenience means that Café Press gets a cut for providing that distribution (website and web store) and manufacturing service.

Great stuff.

Sorry I couldn't get photographs in time to contribute to this. I hope it sells well and makes a lot of money for your program.

Yay! Just placed my order. I got one of these last year. My MB headstock was on February's page. (That was thrilling) Anyway -- the calendar last uyear was beautiful. This one will be too. I'm very excited to get this one.

I just got my order in the mail. I had ordered 5 of the PG rated ones... but I got 1 G-rated and 4 PG-rated. I would suggest double checking each calendar when you receive your order, just in case. Cafe Press is really good with returns or replacements if there is a problem with your order.

Also, for those of you that get a calendar... check out the QR code on the cover. If you don't have a QR reader (free apps available for smart phones), email me and I will give you a special discount code for Uke Leash.

My calendar came yesterday! It's lovely. I even got an extra June. Since I live in Minnesota I am thrilled to be getting an extra June. I prefer warm weather over winter weather any day.

And I ordered a PG rated one. That's what I received.

Received mine, but I don't plan to open it for a month or so... We usually have 11 calendars spread throughout the house (Often for non-profits), and haven't decided where to put the Uke calendar yet.


Thank you again, Lori!

Hi, Lori. Thanks for posting this. Ordered 3 PG's and opened one and it was G. So disappointed. Invoice note in package stated 3 PG's enclosed. Just assumed they were all wrong. Didn't want to open the others. Second one opened also G. Finally the last one I opened was PG - relieved that I at least got one that I wanted. Now to get the order straightened out.

I had a similar problem -- I ordered Gs and got PGs. Contact Cafe Press and they'll send you new ones, usually without making you return the ones they sent.

Finally opened the calendar, and hung it up yesterday - it got the kitchen location, opposite the door (and next to the refrigerator).

I had also picked up a second one a month or two ago, and my wife and I gave that to Fitncrafty, who said she loved it. (g)


Thanks again, Lori!
