Calendar Sneak Peek

Yes, I know it is only August, but I've been illustrating wintery/holiday things since at least June both for my shop and for freelance projects.  Then when it's all snowy and cold, I'll be drawing cute sunshiney, summery things.  

I've got quite a few new things planned for my shop this holiday season, which will begin to debut in mid-September so that my lovely international buyers have plenty of time to order their holiday goodies.  

But today I just wanted to share a couple of sneak peeks with you.  

First, some of you may have noticed that Paper Source is now offering my 2011 Kokeshi Desk Calendar:

This is a redesign I did of last year's very popular Kokeshi Darling Calendar.  You'll find that the new version is a bit smaller, but now comes with a handy plastic case that doubles as a stand for the calendar.

In addition to the Kokeshi calendar, I will also be debuting two brand new calendar designs, which will also feature the nifty plastic cases.  Here's a quick glimpse at the new Little Forest Desk Calendar:

Calendar 2 

It features 12 of the illustrations from my recently released Little Forest series.

And the final calendar design for 2011 will remain a secret for now!  

But here is a quick peek at some new bookmarks that just arrived to be used as enclosures in my shop orders:
