From top to bottom and left to right:

  • Put some new layers on an old painting
  • Sweet little fluff ball
  • Only 250 more Christmas cards to cut, fold and package!
  • Hand cramp city
  • I think we can stop calling this guy 'Fat Barney' now
  • It's my responsibility to eat all the leftover Halloween candy

November Freebie

Posted on November 1, 2012 and tagged Freebies with comments

Hello November! I know I think/say this every month, but where did the time go?? I feel like it was a just a couple weeks ago that we moved into our new house, but that was all the way back in August. I've been spending a lot of time working on a new project called CourseCraft with my husband. It's a tool to easily create e-courses and sell them. You heard it here first, it's going to be totally rad. It's not quite ready yet, but you can sign up for the mailing list and find out the minute we're done. Now on to the free stuff:

I had so much fun making my first iPhone wallpaper last month, I thought I would try it again. This time I also created a desktop wallpaper. Just a fun little calendar and leaf design in some pretty fall colours, I really hope you enjoy!

There are 3 sizes to choose from depending what kind of computer/lappy you have so there should be something for everyone's situation. Just click one of the buttons below to get the full size image. Then just save it and set it as your wallpaper.

Let me know how you like these! I would like to make this a monthly thing, it's great design exerscise for me too. On a semi-related note, I think I've figured out something to do for my next 52 week project. It involves putting my design skills to work every week. Start thinking about your own 52 week project because the end of the year will come up quicker than you think.

Huesday: Emerald and Navy

I'm in love with this colour combo, emerald and navy together look so rich and beautiful together! Dark jewel tones look great on everybody, even me with my very fair skin. That emerald green wall look gorgeous too, it would make a very striking accent wall. Beautiful dark colours like this actually make me excited for cooler weather.

Free Printable: Halloween Tags

Do you need a last minute Halloween decor DIY? Well you're in luck cause I'm a last minute kind of person too and I just made these cute little Halloween gift tags for you! Print them off and stick 'em on treat bags and you'll look like you've had this planned for weeks. There are two designs to choose from so take one or take them both.

My printer is wimpy and can't handle cardstock, so I printed them on regular paper, glued the whole sheet to a sheet of cardstock and then cut them out. If your printer can handle thicker paper... well, I'm jealous of you.
