Welcome to 2013!

The wind is down, the sun is shining.  A good start to a new year.

I thought I would show you the photos I have used in the Flotta calender I did for 2013.  Last year I did one for a few relations, and it was seen by my friend Linda who asked if she could buy one.  So in the end I made and sold 20 more.  This year it was 30.  The proceeds go to the island heritage center which should, with any luck, open this year.

I hope every one of you has a very good 2013.

  1. Love the pictures of the island! Is your house in the collection on the east side that you took?? Wish it didn’t cost an arm & a leg in postage to buy a calendar or I’d get one for fun!

  2. And a Happy New Year to you Liz. It’s 4AM here on the Wet Coast so I’m not at my best.
