Getting Organized {Giveaway}

*UPDATE* I'm so glad y'all liked this store. Now, I only have one winner, but these personalized calendars are super affordable at only $18. Be good to yourself! The winner is JanMary! Congrats. 

It's a New Year and I need to get organized. 

Ugh.

I also need to lose 10 pounds, train my children to obey and pay off the mortgage.

Putting it like that makes getting a little organized sound attainable.

I actually love organization, but one area I really struggle with is the family calendar.

My kitchen is the hub of activity in our home. It's also the place where all the papers end up.

I found a classy, unique personalized idea to keep our family organized on my beloved Etsy.

sayitwithstyle

Say it With Style is an adorable vinyl lettering store.  There are so many great things to choose from, but I fell in love with this personalized calendar:

Personalized Vinyl Letters Calendar, Use with a Dry Erase Marker

I love this elegant calendar with a glass front (vinyl is on the back of the glass). Dry erase markers work perfectly! There is also a place for a grocery list at the bottom.

One lucky reader will win a vinyl calendar with your family's name on it (instructions for applying it to the back of a glass frame will also be sent).

Please go visit this great store, shop around and tell me what lettering you would have custom-made!

Oh, here's mine.  

Isn't is adorable and yet functional? I already feel more organized! Go Shop!

A random winner will be chosen Thursday at noon. 

Check out other great tips at Works for Me Wednesday.

Don't forget tomorrow is Sincerely 'Fro Me to You!

Awesome giveaway. :)

Jenn said...

Oh! I love this! I am still looking at Decempber of 2008. I need a calendar s-o-o-o bad. This would be great for our home school. We thrive on eraseable markers!

hyperactive lu said...

How wonderful! So cute!!!! My favorite in the etsy store has got to be the calendar, but the names on the metal sign are great and would look fabulous on my mantle. Hmm...I might have to spend some "blow" money at this place if I don't win!

Thanks for the giveaway! Too cute!

That fridge flourish thing is great - if I had a stainless fridge, I'd definitely buy that!

World's Greatest Mommy said...

The calendar idea is fabulous. I have a dry erase calendar at the bottom of the staircase and it's invaluable. This would make a great gift, too. I love the mosaic monogram, too. This would look nice in my living room.

Lauren said...

I am a calendar addict!! and that one is super cute. I'm going to check out their website.

Happy 2009 Kristin!

Cherie said...

I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win this! I actually have been wanting to make something similiar to this for at least a year now! (I even bought the frames and everything! LOL) But just never have done it!

RefreshMom said...

That's exactly what I've been wanting! I never would have thought to put vinyl lettering on the back of the glass. I have a spot that's already sort of framed on the family room door; I've been trying to think of how to do a nice looking dry-erase calendar for that spot. This one is perfect.

Patois said...

What a fab find. I'd love one of these. (Of course, so would the 70 people begging before me. Sigh.)

Valarie Lea said...

At first I thought, I know she can't be talking about me (Queen of Disorganization) cause they have the same Header as me, so I thought it was me at first.

Yeah that calender is pretty awesome. I NEED that calender! :)

Yay!!! Fro Me to you lives on!!!!

Veronica said...

I really like the Personalized Mosaic Monogram Family Name. I think that would be so nice in our family room!

Love the shop, the calendar is such a great idea. I have a plain dry erase one in my kitchen right now, but this one has style!

i love the fancy intial wall lettering. Very cool. I want the fireplace to put it above too though! :)

Win or no win...I'm shopping at that store.

Ashley @ mrs007.com said...

nothing like a giveaway to start out the new year! I love the calendar so much. I don't have anything like it and it is practical...my favorite word!

Marina Berryman said...

Love the flourish font. Team Berryman would look lovely across the top of a calendar, don't you think? 2009 is definitely my year to get organized. Lots of travel, including Africa this year!

The calendar you have is really great and makes the calendar more artistic at the same time as functional.

Kirby3131 said...

I would have to also go with the calendar, but that fridge decal is on my list of things to possibly put on the fridge of a flip house I'm doing. It might punch up the oooh and ahhh factor!

Come visit me today at The Goat

Mercy said...

Oh MY! I *love* that calendar! What a great idea!!!

I love Words...I think I'd like to put something up above my fireplace in my new house I'm moving into at the end of the month. Yep.

Thanks for the giveaway!!

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

I'd have to pick that same calendar, except with our last name on it of course. Cuz, see, I bought an '09 calendar but '08 is still hanging on the fridge cuz I can't quite seem to find where I put the new one. You know, cuz I put it away so I wouldn't lose it. BAH.

Anonymous said...

Oh definitely the calendar and especially since I forgot to buy my 2009 calendar this year (yet).

Thanks.

We desperately need a calendar to organize us. We used to be 6 at home, now 3 are grown and out, but the last one here is getting married in 3 1/2 months and the oldest is moving back in! We HAVE to keep track of our work and family and wedding schedules.
This would help so much!
