Thanks for doing this, Suebee!

It was so hard to choose! I wanted to vote for 3 or 4 in each poll!

I just made my votes. I'd love to see all of the pictures that were submitted. What do you do with the small cards you print them out on? You could use them for crafts or something.

Thanks for all the picture picking. They look great!

Suebee,
      Thanks for putting this together.  Can hardly wait to purchase a calendar for home and office.  I hope it starts some conversations.
      Don't think it is helpful to be pushy about rats.  However, I hope the calendar may inspire some questions and give me a chance to say how rats are a highly under-rated pets.

Actually, I just print them out on regular printer paper on my inkjet... they're not spectacular enough to use for anything more than sorting them... LOL!

Sometimes I do choose a few favorites to keep in my purse and show off to people... ;D

I was sad to see that I didn't make the cut for the voting, BUT all the pictures were so good, that it inspired me to practice practice practice!

I cannot wait until I get my calendar, I am going to hang it up in my cubicle.  ::) Yes, I have a cubicle  :P .

I can see why you had such a hard choice, Sue! There really is a lot of talent on the board.

 My pictures didn't make it either. I felt bad at first...but then I saw the pictures and realized mine weren't anywhere near the best! I CAN'T believe the amazing pictures!!!! I had the hardest time choosing. So I'm going to practice and hopefully my pictures next year will be a fraction as good as the ones that made the cut this year!

 Thanks, Suebee!

Last day, and it's not even a FULL day!!!

The polls will expire at the precise minute that I created them on the 14th... which I believe was early afternoon (eastern), but I don't exactly recall! Ack! So don't wait... if you haven't voted yet, do it NOW!

I created them in reverse order so they would appear in the right order, so November/December will expire FIRST!

Thanks!

I, um, just happened to finish voting, so it was right at the front of my mind. 

Procrastination?  I embrace it.

would it ever be possible to sell (on CafePress or whatever) a pack of postcard-sized prints of calendar finalists/winners?  It sure would be fun to have some of them.

This is something I am considering. The way CafePress is set up, it's somewhat limiting... I'd have to rotate them quarterly, or something like that (they only allow one of each item per store, and I set up 3 stores for us), but I can do unlimited things with Zazzle, so they may end up on Zazzle instead. We'll see, once I survive the calendar creation process. ;D

Last day to vote!!!! The voting will end mid-afternoon-ish (eastern), so if you haven't voted yet, get on it! ;)

I'm working on it right now... literally.

I have the cover and the images through August ready to go. Just came here to get the info for September. ;)

Hopefully later this afternoon, there will be a calendar available! ;D
