2017 Calendar – Done!

The photo website, Shutterfly, had an offer recently (ends today, 21 Nov – get there before midnight!), for a free 2017 calendar. I chose to make the “easel calendar”, which is a set of 5×7 cards that sit in a small wooden stand.

I love the easel method of displaying photos. I’ve ordered many square photos from Artifact Uprising and had my dad make wooden easel stands for them. Here’s what they look like:

So here is what my calendar 5x7s are going to look like, and you can imagine them sitting in a wooden easel. I can’t wait to get them!

My theme for the calendar is famous places around the world (that I’ve visited, obviously).

January: El Capitan in Yosemite, California
February: The cherry blossom trees in Washington, D.C.
March: The Monteverde Cloud Forest in Costa Rica
April: Garden of the Gods and Pike’s Peak in Colorado Springs, Colorado
May: Perrine Bridge and the Snake River in Twin Falls, Idaho*
June: Amboise, France
July: Cloud Gate at Millennium Park in Chicago, IL
August: Beach on the Road to Hana, Maui, Hawaii
September: Thingvellir, Iceland
October: Traben-Trarbach along the Mosel, Germany
November: Central Park, New York City
December: Avenue of the Giants, northern California

*It’s a stretch to say it’s a famous place, but it’s the 4th highest arch bridge in North America – and I’ve seen three of the top four!

Happy 2017!
