Announcing the Chickens in the Road 2009 Calendar!


The Chickens in the Road 2009 Calendar has arrived!

Finally! Yes, a calendar! This is what has possessed me lately to spend so much time going through photos from the past year. I’ve been choosing the photos for the calendar. Tearing my hair out. Staying awake at night trying to decide between this picture of Clover and that picture of Coco. Oh, the choosing! I have nearly gone crazy over the choosing. I wanted a year with 50 months so I could choose 50 photos! But here it is–a year with the funny, wacky, ridiculous Chickens in the Road farm animals! What more could you ask for?

Here are the photos, in order, that appear in the calendar. (11 x 8.5 hanging wall calendar.)

This is the first time I’ve done a calendar, so I was desperately worried about quality, not willing to put anything out there that wasn’t professional. I used CafePress to produce the calendar, and ordered one for myself to check it out personally. The calendar is printed on 100 pound high gloss paper and the color is fantastic. I was so pleased with it. I hope you will be, too!

The cats liked it right away.

Don’t you need this hanging on your wall?

And don’t forget Christmas!!!! Doesn’t everyone you know need this under their tree? Get it by clicking here! (Click on the “View Calendar Pages” button there to see each month’s page.) And let me know what you think!

    OMG MUST HAVE! :woof: That is so awesome Suzanne! I was telling my husband yesterday while we were at Target that I need a new calendar for my office, but none of the ones there felt “right”. Now I know which calendar I am getting!

    Brilliant Idea! :mrgreen:

    Wanted to add, I loved the pic of Coco for Nov. The one of the billy goats all lined up is gorgeous, and I’m so happy Dookie is on my birthday month of July 🙂 Oh! and the poofy chicken butts LOL Love it. If you do this again next year, don’t forget the cats 😉 :catmeow:
