Happy 2011, everyone! After a holiday hiatus for the Happy HeART Giveaway, it’s back and ready to rock your world. Given that we’re kicking off a shiny new year, you’re gonna love this week’s offering from super-talented graphic designer Michelle Hyster’s Oodles of Color Etsy shop, which is celebrating its first anniversary this week! I love Michelle’s stationery, prints and invitations, with clean lines but funky patterns and a ton of charm thrown in! If you love her work as much as I do, be sure to “like” her Facebook fan page, too. (Psst…I’m also swooning over her design website!)

This week, Michelle is generous enough to be giving away a Modern Pattern 2011 Desktop Calendar to one lucky winner! There’s one sheet per month (approx. 4×5 inches), each with its own design. The sheets come inside a clear jewel case that you can sit on your desk to display the current month. To enter to win, simply leave a comment with your answer to the following question and include an email address or a link to it… 
What are you most looking forward to in 2011?

BTW…I’ve gotta share this with you!
Kelly Rae Roberts – artist extraordinaire & creator of the Flying Lessons e-course I so, so, so adored last year – is offering an amazing price on her 205-page Flying Lessons PDF, called The Whole Shebang!. I own it and LOVE it.
Today ONLY (1/5/11) you can get it for $89 instead of $140,
but the deal only lasts till midnight PST.
So, grab your wallet and strap on your wings!
