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!

November 2012 Desktop Calendars

4 Nov

Wow! I find it hard to believe it is November (Movember) and there are only two months of 2012 left. This has been such a crazy, big life changes, big lessons learned type of year for me. What exciting things are you going to do with the last 57 days of 2012?

I hope enjoying these free desktop calendars and Movember illustrations is on your to-do list!

national lowercase day

14 Oct

the ultimate holiday site says it is national lowercase day, “an entire day to turn your back on everything you’ve learned about proper nouns.” a day dedicated to poor grammar. the awesomeness of this holiday is debatable. writing this blog post without capital letters is making microsoft word angry and hurting my brain.

love it or hate it – we are acknowledging national lowercase day on the bb creative. enjoy this fun project with lower case (and upper case) letters by tien-min liao.

h a n d m a d e  t y p e –  a typography experiment 

happy topographic holiday!
