2024 Mini Doodle Calendar

My 2024 Mini Doodle Calendar is here! At 3.5 inches tall, it’s the cutest little thing!

Years ago, when I first started illustrating, I began creating these cute little calendars as Christmas gifts. I tied them up with those tiny easels you can find at Hobby Lobby (though that first year my husband made them for me because we couldn’t find any) and attached them to the top of cookie platters for friends at church and tucked them in stockings or packages for family. I even sold a few at our Christmas market.

Everyone loved them, so I did it again! Then life hit and I took a couple years off. People asked about them at market each year and family set aside their little easels for “someday”. Last year, with my new Etsy shop open for business, I decided to make the time to create new ones (chickens and trucks). It was fun to be in the calendar business again. I sold a few and gifted them around to friends and family.

This year I’ve been planning to update my calendars for 2024, but before I could do so, one of you contacted me requesting my 2018 calendar for this next year. I was beyond delighted to have a request and got right to work (after I finished the Mountain Lodge Prints I was working on that is).

And it’s here! As I have been doing with a lot of my early work these days, they have been “re-mastered” and are looking better than new! (“Re-mastered simply means I have better equipment and a few years more skill than I did when I made these originally so I’ve cleaned up the digital files!)

2024 Mini Doodle Calendar cut out and ready to package for gift giving

I’m currently packaging up 31 of these cuties to take with us to Peru next week (12 cut out so far). We’re taking the whole family to serve at a South American Missionary Conference and I want to gift these to the missionary families who will be in attendance!

Please click over to find this and my 2024 Old Truck Calendars in my Etsy shop now! (If it’s the Chicken Calendars you want, I’m hoping to have the 2024 version in the shop the first week or so of November!)

2023 Mini Illustrated Old Truck Calendar

Did you see my Mini Chicken Calendar and love it, but not care so much about the chickens? I hear you. Chickens aren’t for everybody. And while trucks aren’t for everybody, I know that a bunch of you do love old trucks! I hope you love this little calendar with all their whimsical illustrations just as much!

I love to tie these little cuties (mini size) onto a package or plate of cookies for a Christmas gift. It’s what I’m doing for our pastors’ wives again this year. The first year I included a mini easel from Hobby Lobby. They make a great stocking stuffer too and fit perfectly. If you prefer the larger sizes, place them in a frame and switch them out, clip them to the fridge, or slide them in the front of your school binder! So many options!

Whether they are for you or for gift giving (both?), you can find them in my Etsy shop right now!

What do you think? Do you like them? Which month is your favorite. Tell me in the comments!

2023 Mini Illustrated Chicken Calendar

Back by popular demand, I have illustrated new mini doodle calendars for 2023! I did a couple of them years ago (here too) to sell at our Christmas market. They take a lot of time to create, though, so it’s been a while since I’ve done one. This summer I took up the challenge with my mini illustrated chicken calendar.

While I am hoping to sell them at our Christmas market next month, I also have them in my shop as digital downloads. They are downloadable as a PDF with three different sizes: mini, 4×6, and 5×7.

The larger sizes can be framed for display or clipped up, but I love the mini size on easels and tucked on a shelf or in a windowsill above the sink or stove.

You can find them in my shop here.

I have dreams of posting a second design before the end of the year, but I haven’t decided what the design should be. Any ideas? Flip through some of my past content to see ideas of what sort of artwork I’ve done in the past and post your suggestions in the comments.
