Erin Carver, one of my oldest friends, is an incredibly talented artist. We have been friends for about 17 years, and over the years as her art has developed, I have been inspired and in awe of her talent. I am so proud of her, she has recently opened up 2 online shops (Etsy and Felt), and has her first market stall this weekend - if you happen to be in the Hawkes Bay area of New Zealand this weekend, go and say hello!
A couple of weeks ago Erin created her first ever calendar from her Beautiful Words series- 12 pages of her gorgeous art, how could I resist. Except before I had a chance to purchase a calendar, I received one in the mail...thank you Erin!
It is beautiful, and I am so inspired by it. I can't decide which month is my favourite, with words such as this how can you choose a favourite?? -
"you are full of possibility"
"dream crazy. big. beautiful. (your imagination knows no boundaries)"
"trust your intuition. take chances. say yes."
"create yourself. (you are an artist)"
I have each card up on my inspiration wire, and already have plans to frame each mini print (minus the dates) once the month is over. My only problem is - how will I wait until the end of next year to have 12 mini prints of Erin Carver's framed? :)
If you are new to Erin's work, I highly recommend the calendar as a way to receive 12 mini prints at once - and watch her space - it is only a matter of time before Erin will be exhibiting her art in galleries...
