december giveaway! - win a 2010 desk calendar!

The year is coming to an end (already????)... so time for one last giveaway for 2009! Woop Woop! One lucky winner this month will win a 2010 Cabin + Cub Desk Calendar! Perfect for bringing in the coming new year, making your office mates have calendar envy at the office, and just counting your calendar days with some crafty flair.

Enter to win by posting a comment telling me which month you would be and what you would wear if you had to pose for a calendar... got to make this contest fun and interesting, right? (Would you wear a turkey costume as Ms. November? A leprechaun costume as Mr. March? Maybe an 80s Body Glove neon bathing suit as Miss. August?)... oh the possibilities are endless! Please remember, this is just a contest question.. you don't actually have to dress up and send a photo or anything.

I'll make a random draw from the golden trophy cup on Monday, December 21st... so check back to see if you won! Please remember to include some sort of contact info (etsy shop, blog, website, or e.mail address) and please only one entry per person. Good luck!

Great giveaway!!
I would be August because that is the warmest month here in WA state and I LOVE the heat.

I would wear an old fashion full coverage bathing suit. Because it will cover my tummy rolls and look classy :)

Fun question!

I would be July because that is the month of my birthday .
I would wear a beautiful long gown covered in lace and lily of the valley flowers . It would be a gown with long sleeves and would be similar to a bridal gown but in a fairy-tale like scene .
I would look like a piece of artwork by Arthur Rackham .

DancingMooney ♥ said...

Okay, this is very silly and I'm embarrassed to say it out loud, but here goes... the best time to share.

I'm picking October, and I'd be wearing a santa costume. For some odd reason I always thought it would be funny to dress up as Santa Clause on Halloween... don't ask me why. An Easter Bunny costume could be cute too. Ha! :D

Kylie B said...

September for me!

Not sure what I would wear but I would love to wear a ball gown!

Lolley said...

So I favour june… is it okay to dress up as a large strawberry? The first one of the season, of course. Then I'd get on a train and travel to see the northern lights!

French Revelation said...

What a great idea for a givaway!
Ok I would be September because it's Spring at that time of year here in the Southern hemisphere (and my favourite time of the year). I would be dressed in something "Springy" and totally confuse all you northern hemisphere people!

Katie said...

Fern said...

Ooo... I want to win! I'd be January because that's the coldest month here in crazy-hot south Florida & I'd get to wear a scarf. I love scarfs - wish I could wear them year round :)

Shrimp Salad Circus said...

I would have to be December. Even though it's waaay too cold, it's my birthday month, Christmas, and chock full o' happy moments.

Cue absurdity:
I would rock this American Apparel bodysuit in 'evergreen' in defiance of the cold. I would go sparkly by draping all over with tinsel, and then I'd find some fab Etsy seller to make me a little headband with a star to top my 'tree.' Geek, much? Heck yes!!!

buttercup caren said...

January would be my month of choice, as it's my month of birth. I'd wear a crisp white snowsuit with a faux-fur trimmed hood whilst holding skiis and looking all outdoorsy & wintery, all the while posing in front of a faux Swiss Alps backdrop and no where near actual snow.

Anna said...

nice giveaway. :) I'd be October (for my birthday month) and I'd wear a dress/outfit that looks like autumn leaves.

ohvotrecoeur said...

I'd wear a bright yellow vintage dress and flowers in my hair and be June. :)

Tara said...

Valerie, this is a stellar giveaway. I love that you're asking for nothing more than our creativity, fantasy, and perhaps - a little humor.

I would have to be March - it's always been one of my favorite times of year. In California, where I grew up - the mostly dry, golden hills are moist and emerald green, the skies are periwinkle and dove gray - full of potential rain showers and a peek of sun.

I would have to wear a hand-painted silk gown, with all of the colors - and a crown of teensy weensy daisies, like the ones I used to make as a young girl. Resplendent in my dress, I would swing from an oak tree atop a rolling hill - looking much like one of Mucha's beauties.

Sarah said...

asuka said...

What a lovely calendar!

I'd be April -- because it contains the birthday of my loved one and a whole lotta rain: can't fight it, so why not embrace it?

So I'd wear... a dress, whose bottom would resemble an open umbrella; galoshes (partly because it's such a fun word to say) and plenty of rubber ducklings -- you know, to accessorize! :)

atlantisak said...

I would be September, wearing my Birthday suit....because that's my birthday month!

Seriously though, I think I'd chose August because thats when the weather cools down and becomes so nice. I'd wear a cute grey cowl neck sweater, jeans and be raking up some fire red leaves. Either that or I'd be laying in those leaves taking a nap!

Kecky said...

Your calendars are adorable!!

I would dress up as April, since it's my birthday month and I love spring and rainy days more than anything!!! I'm imagining a really super fairy costume with a skirt made out of tiny new leaves, a bodice made of birch bark, and dew-drop jewelry that maayyy or may not be directly inspired by Tiana's from the end of The Princess and the Frog. Oh and of course some sparkly dewdroppy wings! and a few lilies in my hair, cause I love Easter too!!

I think I just answered the question "what would be the greatest outfit ever you wish you could wear every day" instead of the one you asked.

BJ said...

I would definately be wearing diaper a banner reading "Happy New Year" to celebrate my favorite month of January. Out with the old and in with the new!

Mamma Pie said...

I was just looking at yr calendar. It is super lovely.
I would be...springtime. Maybe April? And I would dress up as a snail. I don't know why....it's just what popped into my head and I can't get it out. So that's what it would be. I guess because it seems like spring comes so slowly?

jordantyler said...

I would be the month of december. I love the month for many reasons. One of them being the holidays. I love the colors and I love to get together with friends and family. I would be a snowman. If I could they are cute and have lots of personality.
