Ink Calendar

April 13, 2010

This is a concept (meaning not actually for sale) calendar by Oscar Diaz. The ink is slowly absorbed by the calendar paper. Every 24 hours, the next calendar date is filled in. Don’t you think it’s neat? I love that there’s a brain that thought of this idea.

Also. Friends. I was writing notes about the calendar, when I glanced at my blog dashboard and realized this was my 3000th post. 3000 posts! 3000 little pieces of… something. It feels like I should commemorate it with some kind of celebration. What do you suggest? How should one celebrate their 3000th post? Does it involve pedicures? Ice cream? A good book?

In the meantime, I’ll consider this calendar post an excellent fit for #3000. Both the calendar and the 3000 benchmark indicate a passage of time. A passage of time that’s both pretty and interesting — at least for me. I wonder if I’ll make it to 6000?

I’d celebrate with a good book. That’s my idea of of a heavenly reward.

3000 deserves a pedicure for sure! Thanks for all the wonderfulness you post here!

I think 3000 posts deserves ice cream while getting a pedicure and reading a book.

A really cool clock! What a perfect post for your 3000th!

I love that calendar. Found it a while ago too and I would so love to have one. But like you said it is not for sale – unfortunately.

Congrats on your 3000th post.

That is way cool.

I know this may seem cliche’ to some, but I love celebrating career achievements by going out to eat with my hubby at a nice restaurant & ordering champagne. It’s a bit of a splurge, but it is a time where I feel like I have really earned it! :)

The calendar is fabulous. And for celebrating the 3000th post…How about an uninterrupted shower or bath? Something that is about taking time just to be in the moment & relax.


16 The Lil Bee April 13, 2010 at 2:19 pm

Congratulations! And what a fitting post! I think you should do all three…pedi, book, and ice cream :)


17 Sarah April 13, 2010 at 2:37 pm

19 Jan (Family Bites) April 13, 2010 at 7:40 pm

How about you eat ice cream, while reading a good book and simultaneously enjoying a pedicure!


20 Lei April 13, 2010 at 7:45 pm

That is super cool. And happy 3,000!

How incredible is that?! I LOVE IT!


22 Jeanette Mc. April 14, 2010 at 7:49 am

I think the same thing sometimes – “how cool that someone could think this up”. I love creativity, thinking outside the box. Congratulations, I just went over the 100 mark with my blog, 3,000 is MIND BLOWING!
