Today’s post is a little bit of housekeeping for the blog (would that make it blogkeeping then?), and I want to start by saying a very heartfelt thank you to those who wrote to let me know that there were a couple of mistakes with a few of the printables. As hard as I try, sometimes things slip past me. Mistakes happen, though I dearly wish they didn’t. So today I’m sharing some printable corrections, so that I can make sure that any of you who have already downloaded these can grab a new, corrected copy.
Oh spelling mistakes! **sigh** Even with triple checking the spelling on my printables, sometimes mistakes slip past me. It drives me bonkers, because I try to make sure I’m paying extra attention to how I spell things. Why do I pay extra attention? Well, you see, even though InkScape does have a spell check function in it, for whatever reason, it doesn’t work for me. In fact, running the spell check is a sure-fire guarantee to crash the program. I try not to rely too much on spell checkers anyway, because they don’t always catch everything, but I’m pretty sure it would have caught this one. If you look at the photos below, you’ll notice that February is spelled wrong. 🙁 This is doubly distressing for me, because not only did I quadruple check the spelling, but February is my birth month. You would think after all this time, I would have the spelling of it down.
You will happy to know that the PDF version has the correct spelling. Just click the photos and the PDF should open up for you.
I am not entirely sure how this next one happened. Something wonky happened in May on the 2015 Half-Size Single version. The colour of the numbers wasn’t right, and there was an extra number floating around. I am not sure how this one escaped my notice, but it did, and wowza did my face turn red when it was brought to my attention.
Both are now fixed, and you re-download the whole calendar by clicking on the photo above.
Like I said above, mistakes happen. And I am so grateful when someone catches them. I would rather be embarrassed about missing something so obvious than not know and not be able to make the proper corrections. It’s easy to beat yourself up when you make mistakes, especially these little, I-should-know-better mistakes, but you know what? We’re all only human, and perfection is some unattainable ideal that will drive us bonkers if we try to live up its expectations. And besides, sometimes good things come from our mistakes, like being able to share a chuckle with all of you over these ones. 🙂
Happy Wednesday everyone!
