not to detract from the incredible Boston Buddies calendar that cajunsunshyne worked like a dog on (no pun intended), but the Eloise 2010 calendars are almost done! i am only posting because there were several people that stated in the community that they would be interested in an Eloise calendar. i know that first and foremost, we are of course a community for Bostons, and that is why i think the Boston Buddies calendar is awesome! i love seeing everyone's babies all year long. i am just posting this for anyone that apparently needs multiple Boston calendars. (i.e. ME).

anyhow... we did 10 of the shots yesterday, and will be finishing up on Wednesday (the paint is currently drying on a 4 poster bed and we are in the middle of fabricating a faux stone bridge!).

i do not have the pictures uploaded (we like the shots to be a surprise for people), but since no one likes buying into something blindly, i will upload a few samples tonight probably, and post them then. i can tell you (for the 5 people that didnt already know) that this year's theme is fairy tales. the following are featured:
♥ Rapunzel
♥ Jack & the Beanstalk
♥ The Little Mermaid
♥ Sleeping Beauty
♥ Snow White
♥ Cinderella
♥ The Princess & the Pea
♥ The Three Little Pigs
♥ Little Red Riding Hood
♥ The Ugly Duckling
♥ The Three Bears
♥ Billy Goats Gruff

the price will be $15, First Class shipping for the US is included. if you are out of country, please let me know and i will figure out the cheapest shipping cost for you. i wish i could give them all out for free, but the $15 only covers the cost of getting them printed, and just for supplies alone we have already paid over $1,000. WHICH I KNOW IS TOTALLY INSANE, but it is honestly the only thing i have ever done in my life that i can say is a labour of love. and crazymaking.

so if you are interested, please let me know by Thursday. my husband is freaking out and chomping at the bit to order these ASAP (he is patience-challenged). comment here if interested, i will accept payment through Paypal (or his Paypal as he is fronting the cash).

also... shhhhh... but if you would like one but are a little strapped, i might convince him to do a second run. i cannot guarantee this, but i know how it is at this time of year, and i dont like excluding people who might want one and were so supportive to what i do. it was honestly remembering other's enjoyment that kept me going at 2 a.m. as i stitched little gnomes and ran out of Coke Zero.

xoxo to you all.

eta: when making payment, please make it to birdmadgrrl@aol.com. include in the comments section of your payment that it is for the Eloise 2010 calendar, and your username. also, please make sure your address on file with Paypal is current. i have had a problem with that lately!

fabulous! my Paypal is birdmadgrrl@aol.com, and if you are in the U.S. its $15. please make a note in the comment section of your payment that it is for the Eloise calendar, and please check that your shipping address is correct in Paypal. the only reason i mention that is that i sell on Etsy and i have had the last 3 purchasers have different addresses on file for Etsy vs. Paypal, and the Paypal one was the wrong one!

oops, the last comment was from me, by-the-by!

Awesome! Quick question- how soon are they being mailed out? I'm moving on December 19th, and don't yet know what my new address is- but I should know by the end of the week. Should I wait to pay until I know what it is, or should I go ahead and pay for it now, and make a note in paypal that I'll get the address to you as soon as I know it?

i have you down for ordering one, i will make a note that you are moving and that you will pay when you have your new address. just pay when you have your new address. they will not be shipped out before the 19th, as we wont even have them ourselves by then!

p.s. i am sorry you are moving! what a hassel!

I would LOVE one. I need to make a trip to the bank first, however. How soon do you need payment?

unfortunately, they were ordered already. i have just posted them up on CafePress though, if you would like to buy one through them (the originals were ordered through Shutterfly). Unfortunately, the cheapest we can sell them for through CafePress is $14.99, and then they also charge shipping (i have no idea how much).

if you are interested, the link to the calendars is here: http://www.cafepress.com/eloisecalendar
