On the way to work this morning I did my first calendar delivery, to Ampersand Duck (you'll probably remember her from her work for the Call of the Small exhibition. Still available for purchase, btw...).
When she collected the package from where I'd left it balanced on her mail box she texted to say 'Wow, the calendar is exactly what I needed for my studio (although it feels too good to use)' which made me very happy and I replied that I looked forward to seeing it in situ (after offering her a wine-soaked version, which she sensibly turned down)
A short time later, this image appeared on her Facebook feed:

I replied 'Squee! Also, is it madness to want to recreate this scene in miniature? Perhaps next year's calendar could be comprised of scenes recreating where this year's calendars ended up hanging...' and an idea was born.
I'll have 13 of my 2014 calendars in the wild, a number which fits perfectly the number of photos I need for a 2015 calendar. How much fun* would it be to ask each recipient to send me a photo of their calendar hanging up so I can create a miniature version of the scene?
Just in case, I made sure to get pictures of two of the calendars distributed to work buddies today:
(*'fun' may mean 'complete and utter craziness', depending on your interpretation)
