Seasonal Stationery: 2014 Calendars, Part 5

Today I thought I’d sneak in one final 2014 calendar round up before we dive into holiday card round ups early next week! Can you believe Thanksgiving (and the end of November!) is already upon us? Crazy! For this final calendar round up, I’m feeling inspired by bright colors and bold graphic patterns… from romantic watercolor to vibrant letterpress to striking black and white!

Quick Pick: Linda & Harriett

It’s a huge understatement to say that I’m a fan of Liz from Linda & Harriett. I’ve admired her wonderful stationery for years, was thrilled to work with her on the invitations for the 2013 Paper Party this past spring, and I love her approach to the creative process. Liz has been quietly working on a new website for the past few months, and it’s finally live! And just in time for the holidays, with a fabulous 2014 calendar, screen printed gift tags, notepads, and more! My favorite item in the new shop? This wonderful seasonal note card box set with 16 total designs – four for each season!

Bloggers Love Cats + Dogs

If you’re a longtime reader or follow me on Instagram, you know that I have a deep and abiding love for cats and dogs. My own little family includes five cats, all adopted from our local Humane Society, local cat rescue organizations, or quite literally rescued from the streets in our neighborhood. I know that number makes me sound like a crazy cat lady – but with an estimated 50,000 stray and feral cats in the District of Columbia I try to do my part in giving these fuzzy felines a home. Which is just all the more reason that I’m THRILLED to participate in this fabulous new project from Kelly at Design Crush: Bloggers Love Cats + Dogs!

Bloggers Love 1 Design Crush OSBP Bloggers Love Cats + Dogs

As a fellow animal lover, Kelly had the brilliant idea of a calendar fundraiser to benefit the Humane Society. Kelly reached out to a bunch of blog friends and created two 13-month calendars featuring photos of our cats and dogs. You can choose from Bloggers Love Cats or Bloggers Love Dogs for $7 each or pick up both for $12! The calendars are entirely downloadable, so every single penny will go to the animals!
