2022 Calendar Postcard Set

Brand new this year is a set of 12 monthly postcards that you can use as a desk calendar, stick on the wall or pop in your diary. Each month has a seasonal illustrated cat and you get the full year postcard too. I only have a small batch of these and the first 10 orders will get a free Cookie Cat sticker!

Birthday Calendar

And a reminder about birthday calendars! Buy one of these and you won’t need to buy a new calendar next year. Birthday calendars can be re-used year after year as they’re for noting down birthdays, anniversaries and other annual events. You also get a cute motivational or self care illustration each month to keep you going.

I’ll be popping free Cookie Cat stickers in larger orders over the next week – order from Shopify and/or leave a nice note for the best chance of getting one. Everything is also available in my Etsy shop for anyone in the 27 EU countries.
