favorite calendar for 2010 - Jamie Shelman's Cat Calendar

2010 is just around the corner and if you haven't yet picked up a new calendar (don't worry, I haven't either) the time to do so is now! I've been looking at tons of calendars lately and my current favorite for 2010 is without a doubt Jamie Shelman of The Dancing Cat's 12 month/12 print calendar which is available for $75 on her etsy page.

12 cat prints with calendar, appox. 8 x 11 in. each printed on 100% cotton
rag paper, each print signed and numbered. Awesome affordable way to own
12!! great works of art! (ability to cut off calendar part after use and
save the print! Over $200 worth of art!)

About a year ago I was lucky enough to win an adorable set of greeting cards from Jamie's blog and have absolutely adored Jamie's artistic sensibilities ever since. Its becoming somewhat of a pain to find artwork that isn't overdone/gaudy and isn't done on a computer, so Jamie's work is a welcomed breath of fresh air. I love the simplicity and organic shapes incorporated in her works reminiscent of another one of my favorites, Madeline creator Ludwig Bemelmans.

Jamie's original artwork and prints would make an awesome gift (*wink wink*), but even if you don't plan on making a purchase in the near future, I definitely recommend browsing her Etsy page and blog at the very least as they are full of really cute and unique artwork!
