my creative space





:: february~may

:: june~september

:: october to december +


today i made the listing for the 2011 calendar ~ very excited to have it finished.

i thought i might be fun to list it as a pre~order to start with and include a free 13th collage print. sadly, i can't add an extra month to the year, as much as i'd love to have a spare/extra month!
{the 13th one is the bottom right in the last image}.

i made a couple of changes to the format this year ~ the size and shape is the same, but it now hangs from a loop of blue lacy yarn {which can come off} and i've added a design detail to the dates area. the detail is light olivey lime green ~ not quite as bold as it looks in the blogger version of the image . . . just to divide the dates up a little.

also, there was a method to the image~month matchup this year: i chose an image for each of my family members! i've had this habit from childhood ~ checking to see if my favourite happens to be on my birthday month and was so happy when my oldest son made a request for the november image! hope you like your month! {read top left to right, then bottom left to right ~ clicking on these takes you to flickr for better viewing}.

happy creating :)

I love the layout of the days, the olive works really well and the dotted line is a nice touch.

I like the bubbles on the 13th collage :) Thank you for your comment, today's been a rather wobbly day. I appreciate your nice works :)

These are so beautiful!! Love your subtle designs so much. Make me feel calm. I reckon it's the best quality you'd like from a calendar isn't it?
