There is a truth universally acknowledged: Grandparents LOVE pictures of their grandkids–especially at Christmas time. At least that’s the case for all of the grandparents I know. Gifts for the grandparents became instantly easier the year I had a child because pictures are a guaranteed win! Give them 12 pictures: GOLD! And I found out just how true this is when I neglected to give my dad his yearly calendar last year. He’s been reminding me all year, that he’s been recycling 2012’s pictures for the last 12 months ;)  So, since I created this anyway, I thought I’d share the wealth with a Free Customizable 2015 Desk Calendar for you. Of course, these aren’t just for grandparents, who doesn’t love a little calendar with your favorite moments staring back at you? OR, you can just print them out as-is and leave the space blank for notes.

So, here’s how to customize your own calendar:

Start by downloading the free template HERE. You can use whatever editing software you prefer, but these steps will be for PicMonkey. All of these steps should be possible with the free version. So, go to, and follow these steps: (If you have PhotoShop, I think it’s MUCH quicker than this, and you can just drop the files onto the calendars and print).

Once the customized calendar is saved, you can print them from home, or send them to wherever you have your photos printed. These are formatted ideally for 4×6 size, but will print up to 8×10.

Also, a few little things of note.
1. You have to open each file individually. I know it’s sort of a pain, but it was the best way to make the editing easy and clean.
2. If you drag the pictures beyond the edges of the calendar, PicMonkey will automatically cut off where it goes beyond the edge.

If you don’t want to add pictures, you can just download the template and print it out. I love them left blank almost as much as I love the photos, because it leaves lots of extra space for notes, or just some doodles or embellishments of your own.

The stand is just a flower frog. I like to pick up vintage ones here and there, but this one is actually brand new and still has that awesome old look. You can find lots of cool shapes and sizes here, or at most craft stores. This one was a gift for Grandpa, so I wrapped it up and used the frog as the embellishment on the package–double duty!

    I loved your calendar template and I now have my very own personalised version. Thank you! It was well worth getting it printed on card at my local Officeworks (Australia)
