2015 Dolan Critter Desk Calendar Review & Giveaway

Posted on Dec 14 2014 - 8:00am by Susan Bewley

Disclosure: I received this products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


One of the things I love about a new year is being able to get a new calendar. There is just something nice and symbolic about saying goodbye and hello to a new year through a calendar. That being said, I am very picky about my desk calendar since I stare at it daily in my office. It has to not only be practical, but artistic as well. This is one of the main reasons why I use Night Owl Paper Good’s calendars – they are always unique and beautiful. Once they came out with their new calendars, I knew exactly what my new calendar would be this year – the 2015 Dolan Critter Desk Calendar!

2015 Dolan Critter Desk Calendar: What is It?

Looking for a brand new calendar for ringing in the new year? If so, we think you will love Night Owl Paper Goods new 2015 Dolan Critter Desk Calendar. This 12 month calendar is made from 6 flat pieces of wood pages and double-sided to make the calendar as eco-friendly as possible. Each piece is made from eco-friendly, sustainably harvested birch wood that is sliced thin to make sure as little of the raw material as needed as possible. Along with the beautiful wood grain, each piece is printed using artwork from nationally recognized mixed media artist Dolan Geiman, featuring a beautiful mixed media animal on each side of the card. Like all their other wood and paper products, it is also 100% biodegradable, meaning that you can easily compost your calendar at the end of the year, making it the perfect 2015 calendar!

2015 Dolan Critter Desk Calendar: Overall

So far, I have to say I am in love with this beautiful calendar. I have loved the Dolan Critter collection from Night Owl Paper Goods since I first saw it, but I think they truly outdid themselves with this wood calendar. The wood pieces for each month are a good size for easily reading the date on your desk, and showing off the artwork on each card. As well, the mixed media artwork of various animals on each of the monthly cards are truly beautiful. This is one of those calendars that is an easy conversational piece, since it is a piece of artwork. While I am sad to see my owl calendar from last year leave my desk, I personally can’t wait to display my new 2015 wood calendar. Based on my own experience, I am happy to give the 2015 Dolan Critter Desk Calendar an A+ rating, and highly recommend it to all of my readers!

    I like the calendar because it isn’t made of cheap paper that always seems to tear and fall apart as the year progresses.
