Pear Calendar!

il_fullxfull.543858003_haho

I just finished working on a calendar for 2014! I hope not everyone already has a calendar for next year. I’m hoping that there are a least some people, who like me, are not organized or ready to get calendars in December.

This “Pears of the World” calendar has a different pear type for each month and a short write-up to along with it. It measures 5.5″ x 8″ and is printed on heavy card stock.  It’s available in my Etsy shop. You can read all the descriptions of the pear types for each month are there too.

I started this project pretty late in the year, but I got so involved with researching different kinds of pears that it went pretty quickly. I had so much fun looking at different pears (there are so many sweet sweet varieties) and imagining their pearsonalities!

I’m including the binder clip, so it can be hung on wall:

Pear of the Month Returns!

pear of the month 2I’ve decided to bring back Pear of the Month. For those of you who are new, this is where I pick out comics and illustrations from previous months and ask readers to vote for their favorites. I’m bringing it back because I want to make a calendar for 2014, and I feel that this will give me a good sense of what I should feature in the calendar.

I had intended to do this for 2013, but never got around to it. I ended up buying a “Bygone Days”-themed calendar from the discount bin at Cartes Carlton. Of course, if I get this one for 2014 together in time, I plan to make it available in my Etsy shop!

We’ll start with January 2013 (no sense going back any further). Here are the contestants!

Here’s how it works: I’ll leave the poll up on the sidebar for about a week. In that time, you can vote as often as you like for as many pears as you like (you can even write-in pears). I’ll announce the winner next week!

Thanks for voting!

Pears really like a long weekend!

Apparently pears really do love a long weekend, as this post wasn’t even on the ballot. There’s just something irresistible about a bottle of wine, a plate of cheese and luxuriating on the couch all day.

Mummy Pear was a close second, losing by only one vote.
