Finally, George has his own calendar

Well, I did it. I’ve published a calendar full of George photos. It’s called 365 Days of George the Border Collie and is available from Lulu.com for 19.99 plus a little s&h.

George the Border Collie 2011 Calendar

My family has been encouraging me for the past couple of years to create greeting cards or a calendar of some kind and I kept looking for the method that would suit me best. I wanted a quality product with excellent photo processing and I wanted customers to be able to order it directly from the site where I created it, leaving me out of the mailing process or processing orders. Affordability was another big factor.

It wasn’t until this weekend, when my husband urged me to do it, telling me that people might actually want a calendar full of George photos that I finally took the plunge and began in earnest. I found Lulu on a search. And then realized I already had an account with them. D-oh!

In it, you’ll find my favorite guy in his element: the outdoors. The finished size is 11” x 17” and it’s just in time for you-know-what.

You can check it out on the link above.

Love,

Wow - congratulations on taking the big step. I am sure this will be one of many more forays into the publishing world.

And thank you for saying "you-know-what" and not that other word that shouldn't be mentioned until after Thursday.

This is exciting!

Love the calendar and always love George! My fav is the one of him in Maine. I hope it does well! Happy Thanksgiving!

What a great idea .. wishing you many sales!

Very cool!

Its confusing though... Is this a calendar that has a photo for each 365 days or is this a twelve month calendar with one photo for each month? I am assuming its the latter because to have 365 different photos of George, well, that's impressive!

George has his very own calender!! Congratulations Kate, it looks fantastic (well really - how else would it look?) and I like the way you have fitted in the seasons around him. As my comments these days are retrospective: everyone loved those candles; Blackie looks beautiful as does the red leaf.

Yay for George. I hope he is still going to talk to us little people now that he's famous...

Mary Ann said...

Lovely George! I especially like the December photo, very beautiful. Nice work, Kate!

Lili said...

Oh how much fun Kate! At first I thought you had 365 photos, like in one of those daily little calendars, then I came to my senses and realized it was a 12 month one! He's bound to be a best seller! Congrats to you both! xo ~Lili
