You are directly in contact with me the artist, Kim Jacobs. I do a small amount of direct sales, especially of calendars in the season, taking time off from my painting to get things off to you. When you buy from this site you are benefiting me directly as I will receive a large part of the purchase price as oppossed to, as an example, perhaps 45 cents on the sale of a calendar through Amazon. I handle all the orders myself and am happy to personalize the calendars by signing them to you and your loved ones. I enjoy having contact with you and knowing that you enjoy my work! Thank you for buying my products!
