time for new calendars

As we draw towards the end of another amazing year, it is time for me to get my 2015 poster calendars ready for you!  They make great holiday gifts — just roll up, tie with ribbon, and pass along with your love and best wishes for the coming year.  

My calendars are big and bold (12 x 18 inches) and printed locally on 100% recycled paper (good for you AND the earth) and are available in my etsy shop, at Artzi Stuff in downtown Nanaimo, or at the Pier Gallery Christmas Sale here on Gabriola on December 13 and 14th.  Or contact me directly to place an order (I offer bulk discounts so let me know if you want a bunch).

Which one do you like the best?  Perhaps you cannot decide….if so, just get a couple and make sure both your home and office have a fun calendar on the wall.


and introducing a slightly different style for the new year (with the help of some cheeky oystercatchers)….


Here’s hoping 2015 is full of happy days for you and yours!

P.S. which is your favourite 2015 design?

2014 calendars are READY!

Where does the time go?  It keeps zooming along and here we are looking at the last month of 2013!  It has been an amazing year and I am hoping for more good things in the coming year.

To get us all started, I am happy to announce that I have completed my 2014 Year at a Glance Calendars in time for holiday gift giving!  Many of you requested I do so after I launched them a little late last year (in the New Year).  After much deliberating and polling of some of my artsy friends, I have decided on four designs for this year: “Rain Meets the Sea”, “Trust the Universe”, “Milk Please”, and the very popular “Tea Cup To Do List”.

Thanks to my hubby for creating a beautiful template and a local print shop for zipping up my order, I now have some for sale in my etsy shop and at Artzi Stuff in downtown Nanaimo.  And I mean SALE — since I want to spread my art around with a smile, I am offering these once again for a great price — just $7.50 for each 12 x 18 inch poster!

These poster calendars are is printed professionally (and locally) on 100% recycled paper. Good for the earth and great for the office, kitchen, or studio to help you count the days. I highly encourage reusing this calendar too — at the end of the year, crop off the months and save the art for your wall.

Have a look and make an order soon if you want some in time for Christmas gift giving.  I am placing my first print order on Wed Dec 11th, so can deliver or ship the first orders shortly after that.  Of course, I am happy to take orders from you any time and will get them to you as fast as possible (printing takes 2-5 business days).

I am going to settle in and enjoy this busy festive last month of the 2013 and when January comes I will be ready for another year of amazing-ness with a brand new calendar! Tea Cup will be at my work office, TRUST will go in my studio, Milk Please will go in the kitchen and my man has chosen Rain Meets the Sea for our home office.

I wonder, which 2014 design do you like the best?
