    Dear Amy,

    it’s brilliant ! I’m found of geometric shapes at the moment and hexagon shape is by far my favorite ( I’m French ). I love your calendar, it’s simplicity, colors scheme and the way you arranged it, like a sculpture.

    This is such a lovely idea! Just one question, any idea where to source wood grain paper in the UK? I can’t find it on amazon…. :)

    This is awesome, but it looks so nice that I’d be pretty reluctant to let the kids actually use it!
