2012 Calendar Grrrls is ON!

Following a post on Mama Pea's blog, MaineCelt made the following comment, " I think we should do an inspirational calendar of homesteading women with the tools of our trade: chainsaw, manure fork, scythe, etc."

Oh.  My.  Gawd.  That's IT!  MaineCelt, we're DOING IT!!!

Offers (of yourself!) would be appreciated, but I'll also take nominations of what woman homesteader you'd like to see represented!  Mama Pea and I will select our 13 favorite - one for the cover and one for each of (obviously) the months.  

All proceeds will go to a donation we've all agreed upon.  I'll take suggestions for that, too!  God forbid any of us experience a catastrophe between now and then, but if one of you does - the funds raised go there.  Period.

Come December, I think it would be terrific, too, if each of us tried our best to promote it:  local newspapers, etc.  The more funds raised, the better we can support the recipient of our choice.

Oh, it's ON!  And I WILL hound you to take some terrific pictures and submit them!  Don't think I won't!

Send any and all submissions, photos, comments, suggestions here.

To start things off, here are some of my favorites I've already swiped from the archives of Rowangarth Farm and Garden Now - Think Later!

We'll need to think of a name for our Homesteading Grrrls calendar, too.  Put your thinking caps on!  "Homesteading Calendar Grrrls"?  Not terribly original BUT descriptive!  :)


  1. Totally wonderful. I have my thinking cap on...

  2. Too much fun. The first thing I think of is a photo of my daughter taken last summer... A vamp with cabbage.. check it out.


  3. Swiped! LOL! I see I'm in good company with the lovely Fiona, so I'll take it! I'll have to see what I can come up with :)

  4. This is so great! I can't wait to see how this develops. How totally fun!
