Desk and journal calendars for 2013, “In the Kitchen with Cookie” and “Compositions in Green and Black”

I finally have my calendars on their way after a bit of a delay—the paper I’d chosen simply wasn’t available as we began printing. The printer and I cast about for another similar stock with a matte-coated finish that would hold the image as clearly as a gloss coat but be much easier to write on, my preference for calendars and found two, choosing one from those and while the calendars are in production I have my proofs, shown above. The first bound copies are so exciting to look at!

In the Kitchen with Cookie

If you’ve followed my daily photos on The Creative Cat you may be familiar with my photos of Cookie interacting with properly-warmed pasta bowls, enamel pots and glass salad bowls in the series called “In the Kitchen With Cookie”. I was lucky enough to catch her in the act through the years photographing a dozen amusing images of Cookie exploring alternate uses for these items.

A number of readers requested a calendar which sounds like a wonderful idea to me, especially as a tribute to a part of Cookie’s unforgettable curiosity that still makes me laugh. The calendar is a 5.5″ x 8″ spiral-bound calendar printed on 100# matte-finish text paper so it’s easy to write on but the art still looks bright and crisp.

Each page will include one main photo of Cookie caught in the act which was either taken during that particular month or is themed for that month plus the recipe that corresponds. Other photos of Cookie from the same and related explorations will decorate open areas on the calendar page.

A monthly calendar includes basic holidays, moon phases and a few other things and room for notes at the bottom.

A bit of the text from that day’s post on The Creative Cat and the will be in the back of the calendar with a thumbnail of the main image.

I decided on that size for the sake that it can be bound across the top so that it hangs like a wall calendar, or bound down the left so that it opens like a journal. I will have both variations available for sale, so be sure to choose Wall Calendar or Journal Style when you purchase. Wall Calendar is the default choice.

As a complement to the calendar, I am also designing from the images in this calendar a number of complementary products such as placemats, decorative trays and wood-mounted artwork, and any image can be ordered as a print.

Compositions in Black and Green

Well, this is a natural for me, isn’t it?! I’ve been planning a calendar celebrating the beauty of black cats especially since Mimi and the Fantastic Four joined my life, only hesitating because I have SO MANY images and ideas that I can’t settle on one. But I find it imperative to create something that will also benefit the adoption of black cats because they are often left behind in the shelter. These five wonderful black cats will show the world that everyone needs to have at least one black kitty in their life, and, at least in my house, the more the merrier! I chose this theme for one of these small calendars because it’s a collection including silly, cute and artful photos in equal measure, just the thing to show others what black cats can bring to your life.

The calendar is a 5.5″ x 8″ spiral-bound calendar printed on 100# matte-finish text paper so it’s easy to write on but the art still looks bright and crisp.

I also offer the Great Rescues Day Book, and it’s more than a calendar so it has its own page.
