I had been stalling on the cover of our 2008 calendar until I saw the posting for the calendar round up contest on Decor8. Besides entering calendars designers wish to sell, readers can win a calendar by leaving a comment "listing 5 things that you plan to accomplish in '08 that are helping/supporting others." I got to thinking about my own goals for 2008 and what my new year's resolutions would be... hence, our cover:
At first I was going to "blind print" my resolutions (not using ink), but then I decided that I wanted them to be seen just a bit more - a move that definitely goes outside my comfort zone - so I opted for a very pale blue. I'm excited about our calendar. The designs are simple - not a lot of frills. Have I expressed my dislike for frills? Frills being swirls & loopdy-loops - which just end up looking too stiff for me. Anyway - very excited to debut the calendar. It should be ready to ship in the next 3 weeks, so stay tuned.
