Free March calendar
Every month we’re giving you a free calendar to help you organise your shop and plan promotions. The craft calendar for March 2016 is designed by Angie Spurgeon from Artwork by Angie, so not only is it full of useful information for selling and promoting craft online but it looks pretty too! You can see how fine it is here on Sianuska’s desk.
Our craft calendar is designed so you can easily download it and use as a background on your desktop computers – or if you prefer, you could print it out and hang it on your wall. This month’s calendar includes shopkeeping reminders that will help you keep your shop fresh, events to help plan your marketing and promotions, as well as some events and craft fairs that might be of interest to UK makers. (If you have any events you’d like us to include in the April calendar email us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Psst… You can find instructions on how to set your calendar as wallpaper on your computer at the end of this post.
Thanks to Sian Kellaway from Sianuska for letting us use a picture of her lovely workspace.
About our craft calendar for March…
This month’s calendar has been designed by Angie Spurgeon from Artwork by Angie. We asked Angie to tell us a bit more about her beautiful illustration…
Spring is my favourite season. Lots of my designs are inspired by Spring because I love how our garden bursts into life with colour and the blissful sound of birdsong from March onwards.
The design I’ve done for the March calendar was created from my little pen and ink drawings which I then coloured on my computer. If you look carefully, you can also find the flowers and birds featured on this craft calendar on some of my greetings cards and wall art prints.
