Creating a 2017 Bird Collection calendar….

Since I illustrated my bird collection in February of this year, I have been wondering what to create with all the colourful images. So… a 2017 calendar seemed to fit. I will be taking pre-orders starting in October and selling the calendars at Beyond Craft Show and Sale 2016 in November.
