Every year I create a calendar for friends and family who appreciate the beauty of succulents. The main criterion for each image is that I’d enjoy looking at it for a month, so I figure others will too. Some years, creating a calendar gives me a reason (and a deadline) for painting watercolors. Otherwise, I select the best photos from thousands in my files.
Over the years, the calendar has become a top seller at Zazzle.com. Zazzle keeps 90% of the sales price, but creating a calendar is easy, the quality is excellent, and in any case, I never meant it to be a money-maker. If my earnings pay for calendars I buy to give away, I’m thrilled.
The regular price is $22. Zazzle invariably has a sale going on, but you have to get their emails to know which items and how much…unless you’d like to use this ridiculously long discount code and get 20% off:
Images in my Succulents 2018 calendar are from my new book, the completely revised and updated second edition of “Designing with Succulents”.
