So, it’s almost the end of the year, and some of you will no doubt need help remembering dates and things in the year to come – and seeing how some of you were urging me to do this, oh, about a year ago … I am now delighted to announce the appearance of the first-ever Iceland Weather Report Picture Calendars!!!
It’s ridiculous how long it’s taken me to get around to doing this [and indeed how shamefully I have neglected my CafePress store in general over the course of the year] but for some obscure reason I had this idea that making these calendars was inordinately difficult. Turns out I was merely making it inordinately difficult for MYSELF … but that’s another story.
There are two types of calendar, and as you might surmise, they feature some of my [and hopefully your] favourite photographs from this website, all of them taken in Iceland by Yours Truly. Perhaps in a later post I will elaborate a bit on each photo, where it was taken and whatever other little tid-bits I can recall from the excursion, but in the meantime:
← The Iceland 2010 Wall Calendar has a page [and a photo] for each month, measures 11 x 8.5 inches [28 x 21.5 cm] and is printed on cover weight, glossy paper. US holidays are marked. Price is USD 24.99 plus shipping.
→ The 2010 one-page print calendars are, as the name suggests, printed on one page, and have four different photographs to choose from. They are printed on 12 point glossy paper, measure 11 x 17 inches [28 x 43 cm approx.] and cost USD 9.99 plus shipping. If anyone has a special request with respect to specific photos they would like to see on those, just get in touch and I’ll see what I can do.
I’ve also added some note cards and suchlike to the shop, that might interest you.
As it happens, we currently have a new sponsor on this site [check out advert in right sidebar] who ALSO makes calendars [and a few other things]. And while technically we could be viewed as competitors, I don’t feel that way because their calendars are quite different from mine and I’m happy to endorse them because they’re just so darn good looking [plus they have the Icelandic holidays marked]. So make sure you pay them a visit and check out what they have to offer.
Mega apologies again for how late this comes, since if you plan to have any of these products delivered by Chrimbos – especially those of you in Europe – you’ll have to hop to it pretty quickly.
IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD
Right now, just a little bit past noon, the sun is sending slanted rays to colour everything in a mellow hue. There is no wind and the sky is clear and all of this means just One Thing – time to go out to get some light into those eyeballs. Apart from that, the day will no doubt be devoted to baking and other Christmas preparations! It’s 5 Centigrade right now [41F] and Yahoo weather claims we’re going to have showers, but I don’t believe it. Sunrise was at 10.57 and sunset at 3.38.
