The Art of Each Day


How was your first week of this new year? I hope it's off to a great start!

If you haven't selected a new calendar for the year or like the idea of several ( I do!), Michelle Armas makes a great option for your bulletin board or wall. At $35, you can choose between Sabrina or Cleopatra. And, once the year is over, just clip off the calendar portion and you have a signed print.
Here's my 2012 calendar, top right, on the board above my workspace. I'll eventually get around to framing it, but I love the color and joy it brings to my day, even though the year has passed.
Wishing you a beautiful day and a beautiful year, lived artfully, one day at a time!

I'm so impressed that people still put a calendar on the wall. I have my daytimer and my phone - I can't remember the last time I hung up a calendar. I always need it to go from my desk to my bag in a hurry.

I hope 2013 has been good to you so far!

Pretty!! I keep my fame-worthy calendar on my bulletin board in my office as well - it cheers me up seeing its cheerful outlook every day!

That is very clever.....I am more of an old fashioned gal myself, still like to write everything down and like an old fashioned calendar. And you get a pretty keepsake to boot:) Great gift idea!

So pretty! I'm dying for a new and pretty calendar! Mine last year just didn't do it for me! I will definitely check this out! Looking forward to a great 2013!

Such a beautiful way keep up with the days! It is worth the price for the print only!
Thank you for sharing, Elizabeth.
Happy New Year!

So pretty! I think this is the first year I haven't gotten a calendar yet. I don't know if it is because I rely so much on the electronic versions now, or because I just haven't found the right one yet.

That is a gorgeous calendar. Love your inspiration space too!

This would be a pretty addition to see on my board as my family calendar is huge with writing all over it to keep track of everyone!

What great color and a fun way to add art to our cork board! We tend to have way too many calendars going at one time but at least we know what day it is. Happy Monday, Elizabeth!

I love Michelle Armas - a friend just bought the actual painting you have featured on that first calendar. Happy New Year to you. Glad to hear you had a wonderful holiday. Hope we can get together soon! xoxo

Great colors Elizabeth and I think a frame would be perfect. I just bought a calendar yesterday. It's not a colorful but it has lots of space for writing.. I have to see an overall view of the month and things have to be written down!

Hope your week is off to a good start!

Hi Elizabeth - I love your inspiration board and your calendar from last year! I have several calendars on my desk because I enjoy them so much - one from Susan Wallace Barnes and another of scenes of Paris from Little Brown Pen. Do you know their work? If not, check them out, you will love them!

Enjoy your day! xoxoxox
