You know that thing when you type a word so many times, it starts to look like giberish?
That happens to me all the time with 'February'... it always looks like it's spelled wrong!
It also doesn't help that I typed it roughly 12 million times getting this post together.
I hope you like the February Freebie. I think it's very February appropriate with all the hearts,
pink and love. If you look closely, you'll see that some of the hearts are glittery too!
Thanks for all the freebie suggestions last month, and please, keep 'em coming!
There are 4 sizes to choose from depending what kind of computer/lappy you have

just save it and set it as your wallpaper.

Hey there! I've been meaning to get this post up for days now, but we've been having such
gloomy, rainy weather that I just couldn't get a good photo! I think I remember this point during
my last 52 week project (The View from my Phone) where you're just a few weeks in so it's not
quite a habit yet. Finding time to sit down and draw has been surprisingly difficult for me,
and that's sad because being creative is so important to me. I think in a few more weeks,
when drawing starts to become more of a habit and less of a chore I'll really start getting
exciting about this project.
Come back tomorrow for the February Freebie!! Bye for now.
After last week's mess, I decided to change things up with a bit of watercolour! Working from
photos of flowers that I found on the internet, I filled my first page trying to make them look
realistic. Quickly realising that wasn't working out I started a new page and went with
what felt natural. Easy, loopy shapes and painting outside the lines was fun for me. I think
I'll try more watercolours this week.
It feels like it's been forEVER since I've done a little crafty DIY post, and I guess it
has. I had a lot of fun making this confetti card. It's great to have cards like this laying
around that you can use for just about anything. Leave the centre blank until you need it
then just write (or stamp) in your own little message.
- blank greeting card
- thick cardstock for stencil
- acrylic paints (any colours you want)
- new pencils with erasers for stamping
1// Cut out a circle from your cardstock. I traced a roll of tape to get it perfect.
2// Tape the circle to the centre of a blank card using painters tape. Also, tape off
the edge of the card so you don't get any paint on the back.
3// Start stamping with the eraser ends of the pencils. I used a different pencil for each
colour so they didn't get muddy.
4// Concentrate more of the dots towards the circle and less near the edges of the card.
Now just wait for everything to dry, which won't take long, and peel off the stencil and
the tape. The card is ready for your message in the centre, so say anything you want!
