From the Desk Fridays: The L&H 2010 Calendar


With next week beginning the month of September, I thought it might not me too early to unveil our 2010 Calendar. I know, I know, we haven't even gotten to Halloween yet. And while we're not Party City who starts stocking its shelves with costumes in June (!), I do know that people think ahead with their calendars and gift-giving. And we thank you for that!

So here it is - our letterpressed 2010 Calendar. This year, we've added a twist that we're hoping will help encourage you to write more letters. The reverse-side of each month has an area to write a post card. At the end of each month, you can cut, write & send a quick note. I had to make sure that both the month and the post card format worked - cause what's the point if you're left with an ugly post card? And because you'll send the post card after the month has passed, I designed each month to be more seasonal and less month-specific. So no stars & stripes in July or orange & black in October. I find the result is kind of refreshing, actually. I'll go to Party City if I want to be clobbered over the head with ghosts & goblins.

Hope you like!

Have a great weekend.

Yay! Happy Friday indeed :-)

It's absolutely gorgeous. The colors make me smile and I can't wait to see it brightening up my walls come January. The fact that I can use the past months as post cards makes me giddy (I love being able to reuse things!)

Nicely done!!

LOVE this. I love my 2009 calendar and cannot wait to purchase the 2010 calendar. And I LOVE the idea that we can use old months as postcards. So unique.

I LOVE it! This will be my 2010 calendar for sure! April is so cute, as are June and October!

(Btw, I met you briefly at the d*s Sweet Melissa meet-up the other week, and it was lovely to be able to put a face to a name--or calendar, as it happens.)

It gets better and better every year and I'm not sure how that's possible -- AMAZING!
