Well, hello there! Here I am again on a Monday rather than a Friday. It turns out these Friday posts I've been wanting to do are not finding there way on my to-do list, there's just not enough room on the paper even to right it down! I was silly not to think of how long my list already was. Lot's of great little projects are brewing that I'm looking forward to sharing with you over the next couple weeks.
So here's what I've decided - I'm going to continue to post as I always have, a few times a week when I have something I'd like to share. I'll be working on the new once a week posts I've been dreaming of throughout the month and begin sharing them in March! Also in March, I'll begin posting one other weekly post that will be full of news and new happenings. Phew! Now that that's all worked out, on to the fun stuff!
February is here, already! Time for a new desktop calendar! It makes me happy to work on these with Julia. I really appreciate the little goal we have each month of doing something for fun together and to then share the results with you! Above you'll find one version of our February collaboration.
There are actually two versions, both available here (a new archive!). And if you don't need a calendar for your desktop, but would like a little something to spruce it up for the new month, please feel free to use one of the larger versions of the February photos/illustrations that you see above. I only ask that you use them only for desktop purposes and do not reproduce them in any way, for any other use.
I really love February. I'm not a big fan of the 14th necessarily, but there are several very significant anniversaries for me throughout this month, and I do find myself thinking so much of matters of the heart during this time. One very special February memory is meeting C in 2004. Such a sweet memory to think of during these last cold days of winter.
I hope your February is off to a cozy start! xoxo, S
p.s. Hello Handmade will be having a valentine giveaway over at Poppytalk a little later today, check back there for details!!
