How is your weather lately? We are spending the month of February in Florida, but I have a close friend in NY who said it was 10 degrees out the other day. (I was in short sleeves and enjoying the weather at the time!) Anyway, here is a fun way to spend a chilly day, visit Lulu and design a calendar, book, cookbook etc. I had so much fun putting mine together! I received a huge calendar with pictures I had taken, along with pictures of the family! It looks great! I was also impressed by the quality. Often times when you get a calendar done it is on a flimsy paper, that rips out before the month is over. Especially if you write on yours as much as we write on ours! I did select the Premium 13.5 x 19 in. They start at $23.99, but believe me, it is well worth the price. I may even order one next year! This will be hung on the wall next to my computer desk. It is perfect for keeping deadlines and special dates in. Take a look and see what you think!

It was so easy to design. Lulu makes it simple! I was able to choose the pictures that I wanted and arrange them on the top of the calendar. You get to choose a picture for the cover too!. You can also have special dates printed in the calendar, like birthdays, anniversaries, and such. After putting it all together, I was able to preview it and then place my order. Quick and easy!

|July 31st is our 30th Wedding Anniversary!|
Now, as I mentioned above that Lulu also does books! Cooking, photo, wedding, you name it. I would love to do a wedding book for my friend in Chicago who just was married. Their finances are very tight and they had to actually put up with me as their photographer, so I thought it would be neat if I could get a book done for her. If I do, I will be sure and share it with my neighbors here.

Personalized calendars make the perfect gift! Design one from wedding photos for the couple who was just married. Make a family calendar. If you are a photographer, feature your own works of art. This would make a great fundraiser for a Little League team, with photos of the players and action photos from games or practice. These would be perfect for a church, with pictures from different activities from the past year.
I was very happy with my experience with Lulu, from start to finish. I am sure my neighbor who wins this giveaway will be completely satisfied with her calendar. 1 Neighbor will get to design their own calendar from Lulu.
