This year's calendar, much like this past year itself, is all about the working mother. I've been struggling, adjusting, lamenting, obsessing, and just plain trying to be a mom and a working artist, and it hasn't been easy. I do feel, though, that as we near the end of 2012, I've got a much better handle on things than I did this time last year. I've got my new assistant Megan, who is taking the wheel on all things shipping (pphhheeeew) plus an amazing nanny, Diane, who makes it possible for me to do my job without worrying about Bee being adored sufficiently, a husband who has become a bathtime/bedtime pro so that I can take a few afternoons off to be a mom and then sit back down at my computer on several weekday evenings, and I've got my family and friends to make me feel a little better on the days that everything ends up covered in pee despite my very best efforts. Plus I've got Lobo, who still loves me even though his spot on the sofa has been usurped. Oh, and I've got the worlds most fabulous agent, by the way, but that's deserving of a whole other blog post. Thanks to all of these people, I'm really excited about 2013.
So here it is, my 2013 calendar. Its available in our online shop, either on paper (signed, with dedication requests welcome) or on a linen/cotton panel, as part a wall-hanging kit. You can make it for someone yourself, or you can gift the kit, which includes a dowel, ribbon, and instructions on stitching it up. Both versions come rolled up in a tube, ready for wrapping.
