I do celebrate Christmas, but not in a religious way at all. It doesn't have a deep meaning for me. My son spends the 24th of December with his dad's side of the family, so for the last couple of years it was just me, my boyfriend and my mom.
The New Year, however, is another story. I always look forward to the start of another year. I love making resolutions that I usually end up keeping, for the most part! :) And with every month of December comes the search for the perfect calendar. This time, let me show you some treasures that I found on Etsy! If you see something that you like, just click on the picture to see the actual listing.
Remember Anne-Julie from TheNebulousKingdom that I featured last week? Well, I can't help it, she's one of my favorite artists. Her calendar is simply gorgeous.
Another gorgeous calendar is by Elizabeth from immortallongings. Her Shakespeare illustrations are stunning!
Suzanne from gorjuss is definitely another artist that I admire. The little girls she draws are adorable!
