It is with a heavy heart that I post my latest crafty creation…this sweet, little fruits & veggie wall calendar that was destined for my darling best friends in Kansas City has lost its way. Oh, the tragedy of displaced crafts. Hayley and Kyrstin – please enjoy your intended Christmas gift via the interwebs. (yes, I do realize I was a tad behind on sending out my holiday gifts, so what.)
So it is with a snowday and afternoon glass of wine that I am finally able to write about my craft-baby that met its unfortunate demise. Since my gal pals are excellent cooks and avid locavores, I decided making them a hand-drawn/painted seasonal produce wall calendar was a fitting holiday gift.
Even if you have never really drawn or painted in the past, this is actually quite simple and requires much less artistic ability than you may assume (after all, I was able to manage it).
so. here’s how you make a V E G G I E C A L E N D A R (or any theme you choose, for that matter) : :
step one : : do your research.
for this I simply googled produce availability by month. I came up with a list for each month (3-4 items each) and searched for simple drawings/images of each to aid in my sketching efforts.
