A Creative Calendar for Makers, Bloggers, and Good People

I decided to go DIY and create a fun calendar filled with recognized international, world, and national holidays.


It all started because I wanted to know if there were special days celebrated by makers.

Is there a I Love Wool Day? A National Collage Day?

After a quick Google search for a calendar, I found nothing. So I started to do my own research and came across two great websites:


I found funny days like Squirrel Appreciation Day and Wave at the Surveillance Camera Day (I totally do this in change rooms btw). I decided to create my own calendar. I would include days to celebrate making, but also other things I love – writing, baking, and thoughtful mushy stuff. I started to think, maybe others might like a calendar like this too…

I began to include dates for those who might like to bake, cook, garden, or celebrate Fig Newton Day. As the list of dates grew, I realized what a useful tool it would be for a blogger, a creative entrepreneur, and any goodhearted person who would like to have some fun.  Just in reading it, your head will likely be filled with creative ideas for your next blog post, project, or thoughtful act of kindness.  So here we are, a whole year of days for us to celebrate!

If any of the dates are not accurate, I’m sorry. When I saw conflicting dates, I did check and make changes. The calendar also doesn’t include every possible day celebrated.  I hope that you see this resource as a possible starting place, and what’s the worst thing that can happen if we decide to celebrate Penguin Awareness Day on the wrong date?!
Big picture, I just hope my calendar makes you feel excited for the days to come.

If you decide to use it, I’d love to see how! Tag me on Instagram at @verylainie.  I also ask that if you like it, share it with others!  I spent a little more time on the calendar than I’d like to admit and I like the thought of knowing there are lots of people out there celebrating Penguin Awareness Day along with me 🙂

Feel free to share the link to my website on your Facebook, Instagram, etc.  I have a sign up process just because I want to meet other people who like this kind of stuff.  I also like the idea of bringing together a group of crafty and thoughtful people.

And if you have a creative heart, I hope you like getting #TheLainieList each week.   I call it inspiration to your inbox.  It’s a list of things I come across during the week that I really like and would recommend to a friend – ideas for your next project, a title of a great book to read, or a cute video to watch.

We are a group of thoughtful and creative women. I think you’ll fit right in 🙂

I hope 2018 is a fun one for you,
