There are people who cross your path and you instantly connect.  Susan Meyer is one of those people for me.  She has been a follower of Fairy Dust for as long as I can remember.  I think what really captured me was her incredible gift for photography.  It is stunning.   She lives along the Upper Hudson River and documents her life along the river with her camera.   The beauty she witnesses is truly wonder-filled.

Her blog features her photography and reflections of life.   It is so inspiring.   Check out her blog here:

Susan is also a kindergarten teacher and a gifted one at that!  Check out a previous post of one of her classroom projects, Leaf Lanterns:

Okay.  I have to tell you —  I am so excited to share she has published a 2014 calendar.  And it is gorgeous!  It is perfect for my Reggio Inspired  environment.


The details:

  • It is a 13-month (Jan. 2014 through Jan. 2015) calendar that features one full-page, fine art nature photograph per month.
  • Photos include sunrise river landscapes, sunlit flowers, closeups of tinier wonders, and a waterfall.
  • Additionally, the bottom page of each two-page monthly spread contains American and some Canadian and multicultural holidays, full moons and new moons, and an inspirational (non-religious) quote at the bottom along with at least one small image.
  • The calendar is printed professionally on extra heavy premium paper.
  • Dimensions are 8.5″x11″ (closed) or 17″x11″ (open), and the binding is saddle-stitched.

Here are a couple examples:
