JHillDesign: A Calendar with a Cause

Jennifer Hill of JHillDesign has combined her involvement with the Alzheimer's Association and her passion for design to create a Block Island calendar print, a special print that will always be the month of November in her calendar. November is recognized as National Alzheimer's Awareness Month. A portion of the proceeds from this print will go directly to the Alzheimer's Association. The design was inspired by her father who lost the battle to Alzheimer's 3 years ago.

Author of the blog Places I Have Never Been, Jennifer's writing & designs are inspired by her imaginary vacations to far off places. She's a truly talented artist with unique visions and a strong heart. As a preview to her 2009 calendar, here are the patterns that you can expect:

  • January: Easter Eggs in Kiev, Ukraine
  • February: Bridges of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • March: Gorse in Galway, Ireland
  • April: Rainbow Trout in Sun Valley, Idaho
  • May: Chateau Gardens in Loire Valley, France
  • June: Silver in Zacatecas, Mexico
  • July: Tart Cherries in Traverse City, Michigan
  • August: Hops in Portland, Oregon
  • September: Cowboy Boots & Music in Austin, Texas
  • October: Black and White Clocks in Chester, England
  • November: Birding in Block Island, Rhode Island
  • December: Zeppole Festival in Positano, Italy

Each month's pattern features pieces of information about the particular place including its language, its distance, and the inspiration for the design.

Allow Jennifer's 2009 Wall Calendar to help you imagine your dream vacation.
