calendar // april's pink grapefruit jam calendars

I was tempted to post this new April calendar wallpaper and pretend like I had posted it on time, but that you just stumbled upon it late. But I'm too honest for that. I'll gladly own up to falling behind again. Still? Yep. That's just how it is. And so, we flip the calendar page a few days after the first of the month.

March flew by in a flash, with me trying to squeeze things into the first half of the month as much as possible. That's so I could work on a giant project the last week of March. And what was that project? Basically it was taking a 5x7-foot space that was once my office and transforming it from the dumping ground it became, into this:

Me in My Craft Space

It's not finished yet. I still have empty shelves and TONS of stuff to go through. But it's a happy place right now and I'm looking forward to making it even better.

But now it's time to get back to making jam. And today, I've got some pink grapefruit jam! I will admit that I chose this flavor for it's color. Because isn't it yummy? I also found a recipe that inspired the look of my jam. It's Pink Grapefruit and Vanilla Bean Jam (hence the little specks in the jar).

I'm drawing the embroidery pattern right away and stitching as soon as possible this time. But for now, even though it's a little late, grab a calendar wallpaper for your computer, phone, or tablet.

    Very nice! I would love to see more pictures of your office/craft space if you feel so inclined. Love the Jam series!


    1. As soon as it's all finished, I'll definitely be sharing a whole "tour". It's small, but I'm happy to have it!
