We needed a couple more 2014 calendars for the house (okay, I admit, I'm not happy unless there's one in practically every room) so I stopped by BAM to shop their 50% calendar sale, at which I found this:
Cynthia Hart's 2014 Victoriana Calendar is a 25th anniversary edition, so they packed it with extra goodies: four lovely die-cut postcards, a neat standing year-long desktop calendar, plus a code to get a free digital page-a-day calendar online (and because of the light I darkened it quite a bit to tone down the flashy spots, so it's a bit lighter than this.)
It's odd, sometimes, what sort of calendars attract you. I have black-and-white Zen in the office but nothing in the kitchen, which is pretty much where I live when I'm not sleeping or writing. Also, I'm not usually into chicky stuff like this -- Ansel Adams really is more my speed. Still, for some reason I simply could not resist it. Everytime I look at it I'll think Victorian for sure.
Since I saved 50% I picked up an extra to give away here on the blog. Which brings me to this:
If you'd like to win the lot, in comments to this post name something fun that you'd like to do this year by midnight EST on Sunday, January 26th, 2014. I'll draw one name at random from everyone who participates and send the winner the Victoriana calendar package along with a signed print copy of Disenchanted & Co. and a signed print ARC of The Clockwork Wolf. This giveaway is open to everyone on the planet, so please join in.
