2015 Calendars, Week Two

2015 Calendars, Week Two

I’m all about patterns, shapes, and painterly landscapes this week, and my calendar picks reflect this, with designs featuring bold, modern botanical patterns, gold foil stamped lovelies, layered laser cuts, and painterly pickles.

Holiday Card Picks : Anni Betts

I’ve crashed my browser more times lately than I’d like to admit, but it’s only because there are so many wonderful, seasonal greeting cards to be ooh-ed and aah-ed about this year. I open tab after tab of holiday paper loveliness until ol’ Firefox says, “I can’t take it anymore!” Thank goodness for the restore function! But enough about my technical issues. Let’s get started with the awesome holiday cards, shall we?

The sweet critters. The hand lettered goodness. The fun and festive, holiday scenes. What’s not to love about these absolutely adorable holiday greeting cards by illustrator Anni Betts? And, yeah, ice skating otters are just about the cutest thing ever, followed closely by sled riding dogs with scarves and chinchillas snuggling under the mistletoe.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween Card | The Beautiful Project

Before I sign off for the weekend, I want to wish all of you a Happy Halloween! Whether you’re taking the kiddos out for trick or treat, heading out to a grown ups-only costume party, checking out a haunted house, or doing a little bit of everything, I hope that you have a spooky and fun time.

Try not to eat too much candy! 😉
