In December I purchased an adorable book and owl calendar created by the very talented Joy of Whimsical Joy.
Her amazing book What Love Is Like, is absolutely perfect! The words and illustrations are inspirational and dreamy.
It makes you smile with each word you read and each new image you are greeted with.
It is such a lovely concept for children, but it can be appreciated at any age!
This was just a taste of what was included in the book! 😀
You can visit Joy’s blog for updates on when the book may be available again.
I did not realise when I asked Joy about an owl calendar that she made it as a custom order. It was really lovely!
So many adorable owls on great cards with soft colours and magic!
Unfortunately Joy does not have any copies of the book What Love Is Like available at the moment, but hopefully she will very soon <3 . You can visit her great Etsy shop Whimsical Joy Studios and browse all the pretty things. (How cute is that fox pillow!) This is not a sponsored post, I just wanted to share the work of a talented artist and friend. :3
Absolutely darling! I want it too~ too cute. <3
Hopefully she will have some printed again soon. 😀 She did make the owl calendar available, so that is cool!
Very talented. On another note, I can’t wait to see when your book is published.
Hopefully I can finally be happy with the illustrations/words and just do it. THIS YEAR.
im so glad you liked everything! When you first asked me about the calendar, I didn’t have an idea but then our mutual love for owls sparked some inspiration
That is so wonderful. 😀 <3
This is all so cute, I do so love owls.
They’re a hoot. ^_^
Oh my gosh, those are so beautiful! The book is so innocent and heartwarming! The picture with the person holding the balloons is so cute, Joy is very talented!
There are many more magical illustrations and words inside. I just picked a few of my personal favourites. 😀 She is really talented!
Ahh this is so cute! 🙂 I love the calendar, I mostly use a calendar on my phone… if I had a paper one I would probably write things down anyway. This would make a nice gift though, and I know my family likes to use the family calendar. 😀
I love the book, too. Have you read Love and Misadventure by Lang Leav? Not as cute, but it’s a lovely little collection of poems and short pieces about love.
I have not heard of that book before, but it looks really lovely. I will keep an eye out for it! 😀 Thanks!
Aw! That is so cute! I’ll have to check her stuff out! I love supporting independent Etsy sellers, so that makes her stuff even better! Thanks for introducing me to her! 😀
My pleasure. I have to agree, when you can discover or purchase items directly from creative people and artists and actually support them, it’s very cool. :d
I love Joy’s work! I bought a 2014 calendar from her last year and hung it up at work. I loved it. It was so cute!
The owl calendar she custom made for you looks so good! I love her style and hope to grab her book at some point 🙂
I loved that calendar as well, it was so cute. 😀
I love Joys work, and I’m glad to see it’s just as amazing in person. That custom calendar seems so perfect for you!
It has been really cool in the last few years meeting many new designers. 😀
The calendar is neat! I can’t remember the last time I actually used a calendar though. I remember one year having the previous years calendar still up 😛 I’m not very good at keeping up with them.
Hahaha. Sometimes I do forget to change them. I have a cute desk calendar as well, that you just flip, it’s a kawaii one as well, so you get all the cute. xD
I love the notebook! I wanna doodle on that! *u*
Wow! Thanks for sharing an amazing, and adorable book! I hope more are available soon! 🙂
Hopefully there will be soon! 😀
The calendar is absolutely adorable! Wow! 😮 the book seems very cute too, but now I can’t get over the typo on the cover :'(
:p I had not noticed that before. 😉
I just checked out Joy’s Etsy store and I can see it’s full of beautiful art. She’s a very talented illustrator. 🙂
I absolutely adore your owl calendar!
She really is! The owl calendar is just so awesome. ^_^
Oh my gosh, that is the cutest thing ever! 😀
Those are so cute! I can tell you really love owls. XD
Hehe, how could you tell, really? <3
She’s so talented! And the book and calendar are so adorable! I agree with your comment that children books can be enjoyed at all ages :3 I always want to buy picture books but they’re so expensive and my sister always tells me that I don’t actually need them, haha.
Also!!! I wanted to thank you for your virtual hug!! *hugs* I’m not sure you remember but I actually feel so much better because of your words! So thank you for being so sweet and awesome!
Picture books are so lovely. I am amazed by the ones that have really wonderful illustrations and a story can that really inspire and has a good message. 🙂
I am really glad that I was able to send some positivity to you in some form. <3
Oh, those look pretty adorable, and prices are pretty reasonable too. Great work on Joy’s part! :O
Aw, these are adorable! 😀 I wanna buy one too!
😀 You should! Or, the calendar is available. 😀
I’m in love with her stuff, her and Kurt Halsey Frederickson are my favorites!
Oh wow. I had seen his work, but never knew his name. Kurt is really talented too!
I love how cutesy the items are! And the simplicity is a huge plus!!!! The calendar looks beautiful too :3. It’s a plus to your owl collection!
It is indeed! 😀
