The Calendar Post...Finally

I was feeling pretty bad about how late it had gotten to put up the calendar post until I looked at last year and saw it was November 16th.  Hey, I'm two days earlier this year!  And then I scrolled down and remembered (trying really hard to forget!) that we were up to our necks in the big home remodel last year.  Oh right...

Without further ado, the 2017 calendars :-)

The Equinox Farm calendars - yes, two!

Same format as previous years.

Always Hank.

Here is your bizarre story of the day.  I took several shots of the Maisie month to make sure I had the camera straight.  I actually do that with all the pictures because I tend to tilt the camera as I squeeze the shutter sometimes.  Anyway, in looking through my Maisie pictures, trying to decide the straightest shot, it looked like she was winking at me (!).

Just think about that for a minute. I'm taking a picture. Of a picture.   In my head I figured out that it was just a camera angle issue, recording more or less of the dark color of the picture of her eye...but my heart knows she's probably just pulled another good one on me.  And she looks pretty smug about it.

"Please buy our calendar with a creepy picture of a half crazy sheep whose eye follows you around the room WHILE SHE IS SLEEPING!"

Yeah, I'm probably headed to McDonald's to flip burgers to pay the hay bill this year...

If  we all live through March, there's a little sweet Graham to wash our eyes out.  In more ways than one.  I miss that big, funny, sweet, annoying goofball :-/.  It's good to remember though. Always.

Baby birds!  Okay, so we just have to make it through til June! :-D

Lots of little pictures again.

And my all time favorite far.

And don't forget that Saint Tim printed two calendars this year.  You can pick which cat you'd like to spend September with or let me surprise you.  Just let me know what you prefer :-).

And the 2017 Lamb Camp calendar!

Bullwinkle on the cover.

Sweet mommas and babies.

Sleeping lambies.

Lambies on jungle gyms.

Okay, here's a cute story about taking pictures of calendars.  Actually, it is about note card pictures. I knew I'd taken some farm shop pictures back in the spring and this lambie reminded me.  I dug back and found them.

Bullwinkle's probably just looking at the shiny plastic, but I like to think he's looking at the picture.

And the lamb is looking back at him.  In a good way :-).

We'll do it basically like we do every year.  Equinox Farm calendars are $12.50 each and the Lamb Camp calendars are $10.00. Shipping (to the US) will be a flat fee of $6.10 (whoops, postage went up and they are now $6.80) using a Priority Flat Rate Envelope.  Shipping overseas last year was not as expensive as I feared.  I'm happy to get a quote for you. Likewise for Canada.

If you are buying just a small Lamb Camp calendar and you live in Lexington, I will use a smaller plain envelope and charge you the actual shipping costs, probably around $4.50. Everyone else will be pretty close to the actual costs using the USPS envelope.  

If you'd like to order one (or more), just send me an email with what you'd like and your shipping address. I'll send everything out with an invoice and a return envelope and you can drop a check in the mail upon receipt.

There are also Lamb Camp note cards, Christmas cards, drop spindle kits, Maisie Orneries, Mug Shot mugs, My Favorite Sheep canvas totes, a little the new Farm Shop (yes, it's finally mostly updated) if you are interested.

As always, we truly thank you for your support.

Wonderful calendars! Great photos that give us a small glimpse of what your life is like.

Ruth said...

I've just ordered up my own calendars for this year as it happens. I love how yours have the little pictures too. Very nicely designed. :)

Renee said...

I can't wait until my new one arrives! I still can't part with the 2015 calendar because I don't throw away pictures of friends. These both look beautiful Sarah, as always your touch creates something wonderful :-)

Aw the Baby Bullwinkle photo is *so cute!* Must check out your store.

Just wondering. Why wouldn't we make it until March or June? Should I be sharpening my Viking combs in anticipation of the zombie apocalypse?

thecrazysheeplady said...

Haha no :-). I was just thinking Crazy Maisie scaring us, then crying over Graham the next least we'd have those adorable baby birds to look forward to ;-D.

LOVE the picture of Bullwinkle and the notecard lamb looking at each other. Perfect shot! As always, the calendars are a work of art! Super job!

Kylie said...

That Liddy pic is my favorite, too. The background of my computer :)

thecrazysheeplady said...

Mine too :-).

Lori Skoog said...

As usual, the calendars are spectacular. My favorite shot is Bullwinkle looking at the photograph. So sweet!!!!!

Diane said...

what adorable images. I love them all and the real lambs too :-)
I fear that since I now use my smart phone calendar for everything I no longer use a tangible calendar. But the images in yours are absolutely adorable and so much better than mountain scenery!
