It’s March! Hopefully this means warmer weather is just around the corner. Get a head start on spring cleaning this month by tidying up your desktop calendar.
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?
Happy New Year friend! I hope you find time to share these monthly, embroidered postcards with some lucky recipients!
Share the DIY love.

May your Christmas be Merry and your New Year be Bright!

And thank you to Elysse Ford Photography for the lovely family Christmas card.
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.
May your days be merry and bright,
And may all your Christmases be white!
Warmest wishes for the happiest of holidays from Saskatchewan.
p.s. – I am sorry if you are viewing your Christmas card online before you receive it in the mail!
