bee things 2011 calendar - limited edition

ring in the new year with our bee things calendar! this happy calendar is designed with a perf just above the calendar portion, so that the 11"x 14" (28cm x 35.5cm) print can be framed after the year has come to an end.

our 2011 limited edition calendar is printed on archival starwhite paper, in an edition of 350. the calendar measures 11" x 19" (measures 11" x 19" (28m x 48.25cm). the print portion perfs away, leaving the 11" x 14" print (28cm x 35.5cm), which sits beautifully within the common frame size of 14" x 18". the calendar portion below is printed offset for crispness.

new color

i was really tired of the bright blue accent wall in our living room. so i decided to pick something more 'sophisticated'. my sophisticated warm gray, i mean, beige was awful. this is what we finally agreed on after hours of playing with colors in photoshop :) i think i like it!
