Oh and 2010 is a year of folk festivals, magic shows and dogs… and that is only up until March


I like the yeti monster!


Count me in, please! 🙂
One of my faves is the Cypress letterpress mini notebook.


Ooooh…letterpress! I love the sweet cake flags… they’re so sweet!


I have looked at letterpress before and bookmarked it for the future. I have to say I must really love owls because my favorite thing is … Owl letterpress Moleskin Cahier … I NEED one of those!!


Ohhh- Owls.. I just love Owls. We listen to the Screech Owls at dusk and dawn and then the Barn Owls later at night. I think they are magical.
My plans for 2010 are to get something up for sale on my own Etsy shop. Got the shop started, but have not put anything on it yet. I guess being busy is a blessing, but there just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day


I love the spirograph letterpress. I just found my moms spirograph from 45 years ago! I love it.


Love this calendar! Sucker for black and red on chipboard.

My plan for 2010 is to learn how make the most perfect poached egg. It’s a lofty goal, but I think I can do it with enough practice. Eggs benedict galore, here I come!


the blackbird flags are really nice!
this is lovely artwork. I’d be delighted to display a calendar like this in my home. thanks for the opportunity to enter the drawing.

In 2010:
Small goal – write more letters to people and
Big goal – get a job doing what I love again.


The Birds on a Wire notecards are just fantastic!


I love her flags! I wish I had somewhere to put one.

What a great calendar! 2010 is going to be BIG!! I will turn 65; retire in January and go to Egypt in February. Looks like an adventurous year for me. Thank you for the give-away. csl
