The Birthday Calendar is here!

Ever forgotten someone's birthday? Birthday calendars originate from the Netherlands but we always had one around the house in Germany where I grew up. The difference between a normal calendar and a birthday calendar is that birthday calendars are perpetual. They don't list the days for a specific year but can be used year-after-year with the sole purpose of recording your loved ones birthdays and other important annual events. What a lovely idea – keeping track of all your friends year round. Of course I had to make my own for the shop!

I thought it would be fun to just work with watercolours for a change and take a break from the computer for a while. The outcome is the new Draw Me A Lion birthday calendar. Hang one anywhere in your home, to remember your friends near-and-far all year round.
