One of my favorite things about the new year is picking out calendars for my home. There is something very satisfying about taking down an old, well-used calendar and tossing it into the trash. This Christmas I got some great calendars (including a beautiful autographed Greg Olsen calendar from my girlfriend), but my favorite is a 2010 Barbie Fashion Model Calendar (printed on recycled paper no less). Très bien!I'm sure when you think of fashion, Barbie isn't the first girl that comes to mind. However, if you sit and ponder over this a while, it's definitely true. Barbie has had more outfits and seen more decades than Princess Diana. She has learned to adapt and change throughout the years, from model, to homemaker, to career woman, and back again. You could say that Barbie has re-invented herself more times than Madonna!
So, what better way to inspire and create in 2010 than to have Barbie watching over my comfortable blog nook. Oh, and by the way...the pink and black No. 6 is my favorite ("Blush Becomes Her Barbie 2001"). What is yours?
