February 2013 Desktop Calendars

3 Feb

February has to be one of the most difficult winter months. It is a month filled with ice, snow, and cold. Do something special for yourself, warm up with a cup of coffee and Baileys and give your computer a quick facelift with a new desktop calendar!

embroidered postcards

3 Feb

To celebrate the New Year my friend Courtney and I exchanged handmade gifts. We’ve been exchanging DIY gifts around the holiday season since 2010. I love our gift exchanges; I look forward to them every year.

I was at a loss of what to make for Courtney this year. I took me weeks to think of an idea worthy of my friend. Our gift exchange deadline was approaching fast and I needed to commit to a project. I decided to make embroidered postcards, inspired by Freckled Nest. I love receiving mail and loved the idea of making something Courtney could share with others throughout the year.

Who wouldn’t love to receive a handmade postcard in the mail?

Share the DIY love.

Happy New Year friends!

2012 has been a crazy, fabulous year. I moved from Vancouver to Saskatoon. I started a new job in a new industry. I sadly said goodbye to my wonderful Vancouver besties. Fortunately I met some amazing girls in Saskatoon who made this transition much easier. 2012 has been a rollercoaster year of change.

Thank you to all my friends and family for their support in 2012. I feel like I am where I should be.

Get a fresh start on 2013 by changing your desktop wallpaper!

Merry + Bright Christmas Cards

24 Dec

Merry Christmas! I cannot believe it is Christmas Eve; where did the time go this December?! I am incredibly behind on my Christmas cards and Christmas blogging! I apologize a thousand times.

I love sending snail mail. A hand written card with a thoughtful compliment is one of my most favourite things to receive.

Last year I made embroidered and printed cards for family and friends. This year I kept things simple and made one lovely linocut stamp “Merry + Bright”.
