I used to start every single morning by peeling off another sheet on my Mary Engelbreit calendar.
I loved the characters, the sayings, the colors, the happiness! Each Christmas, my stocking would have a calendar, ready to go for the new year. Years and years of these calendars have left me with stacks and stacks of the daily sheets. (I could never ever throw them away!!! #hoarders)
Additionally, I read her magazine religiously. Multiple times. One of the features was showing off the studios of popular artists. I was always inspired by these studios. Some were neat as a pin. Some were minimal and clean and white. Others were strewn with nicknacks and dried paint.
Here's Mary in her own studio:
Are you lusting over the hundreds of pens, pencils, and markers like I am???
Somewhere buried in a storage bin are hundreds of these paper dolls! Did anyone else collect Anne Estelle and her friends?
Oh that Mary had quite the sense of humor.
Please tell me that I was not the only one obsessed with Mary Engelbreit!!!
