Hopefully the people on my gift giving list are too busy to read my blog this holiday season because this weekend I created a calendar that will be their gift. YAY! I designed one for a gift swap we had last night at our Art (that matters) collective and in the middle of doing it figured out a way to do it faster. The one that I created for the exchange is the original art, as that was the critieria for the gift swap (which I understood). So, I am going to recreate and print the months off my color printer. I attached a few photos to show how the calendar for my artist gift recipient came out. I used an Ikea frame that is one of my favorites but I guess I could use any type frame. Maybe I will do that so that the gift is less generic..

I had so much fun doing this and want to do a couple of other designs to mix it up some more, or perhaps change up the colors. I just feel relief that I know what I am going to do this year. I told some people they were getting homemade and I was racking my brain. I am still going to give some paintings as well. I love giving art as a gift! I also love getting art too! I received a terrific piece at the gift swap last night and will post that soon. My first gift of the season...its starting! Have a great day!
