It's that time of year

When I start thinking seriously about holiday gift giving. Oh, I know it's only October, but I do like to plan ahead. Mostly because I don't enjoy becoming overwhelmed at the last minute with too many gifts to buy and things to do. I have always been one to make many of the gifts I give, not only for the holidays but also throughout the year for birthdays and other occasions.

So I spent a good deal of time yesterday putting together some new items for my CafePress store. Here is a sampling of my two favorites. My colored pencil piece, "On The Forest Floor" as a framed tile and a twelve month wall calendar. You will have to visit my CafePress store to see all of the items I have available.

Each month in the calendar features a different colored pencil painting that I created during the last year or so. When I thought of making a calendar I wasn't sure whether I would have enough pieces for 12 months. Then I started looking through my images and realized that I had more than enough. Enough works to edit down (not so easy) to my favorites, one for each month.
I also opened a gallery at ImageKind. You can find the link on my side bar. This is something I had wanted to do for some time, having seen this service on other artists' blogs. So here are two of the four images I have available for prints and greeting cards at ImageKind. If there is a work of mine that you would be interested in purchasing as a print, please let me know by emailing me (contact info is at right in the sidebar) and I will be sure to add it to my gallery at ImageKind.

Great post with lots of info and thanks for sharing it. I'm going to stop by your Cafe Press store and ImageKind gallery to see what's up.
The Edisto Dune is stunning - I know I've said it before, but ...

Awesome! I thought the leaf was a photo - beautiful photo, too! until I read it was in pencil and had to check if I had understood correctly! Beautiful calendar, too!
