Hoppity hop, yo.
Easter is one of my top under-rated holidays. Since my family isn’t particularly religious, for us, the entire occasion is dedicated to two of my favourite things: candy and scavenger hunts. The fact that it’s held smack-dab in the middle of the Spring, when I’m just starting to feel hopeful that maybe the long, wet rainy season is over definitely works in its favour. And the imagery of cute baby animals, new flowers/greenery and assorted other fluffy things makes me “squeeee” like a child.
I am fully ready to get into the Easter Bunny spirit and I am starting with these Easter stickers to go in my planner.

Recently, a dear friend mailed me a card.
An actual greeting card. With a stamp. Delivered by the friendly Canadian mail moose. The gesture was so sweet and unexpected, I could barely contain my smile as opened it. So few people send snail mail these days. Why write a letter when you can dash off an email? Who buys a card when you can text people halfway around the world and have them receive it instantaneously? My heart soared with the care and thought that went into the card – and I knew I wanted to send one back.
When I was a kid, I used to spend hours folding cards from construction paper and decorating them.
There was no occasion too small to be celebrated with one of my handmade masterpieces. I once gave a babysitter a card as a thank you for bringing me a glass of milk, so apparently, I’ve always been a little extra. I’m not entirely sure how I went from being that kid who made a million cards to the adult who hates going to the post office like poison, but here we are. One of my goals for 2018 is to connect with people in my life in a more real way, so I’m undertaking a project: card making. I think there’s something so very special about handmade cards.
The only trouble? My cards still look like an 8-year-old made them in a rush while someone was in the kitchen getting them a glass of milk. I knew I needed some help, so I teamed up with Brittany from Spencer the Goldendoodle. Brittany is a seasoned card maker, excellent designer and all around rockstar.
Our idea was simple: she would design a super cute card, I would turn that design into a free printable card making kit and we’d share those printables with you!
I am so excited to share our first set of DIY Valentine’s Day Card.

Six months ago, my friend AJ came up with this absolutely ridiculous plan: I’d move to Toronto and we’d open a combination farm, animal rescue and pottery studio.
*le sigh* The idea was flawed on so many levels, including but not limited to her distaste for work that makes her sweaty, the fact that she has never MADE pottery and that locating on a whim to partake in her shenanigans is not something I was doing. AJ wanted to call it “Pottery Barn”, which was sadly already the name of a well-known home goods brand. It took some convincing that this was a one-way ticket to litigation, but she eventually renamed this scheme Hairy Potters, which meant it was now a farm, animal rescue pottery shop with a Harry Potter theme because apparently, WHY NOT?
Spoiler alert: Hairy Potters in not currently in any kind of plans to actually open.
However, AJ’s enthusiasm for the concept did inspire these Harry Potter stickers for dog lovers, so I guess that’s something? We are hardcore, ride or die Harry Potter fans in this house. I read all the books. Often at midnight, on the day they were released. I own multiple versions of the books, like the illustrated Harry Potter versions and the companion books, like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and the tales of Beetle the Bard.
Felix listens to the Harry Potter audiobooks all the time to help relieve his sound anxiety and help us all relax. (The UK version read by Stephen Fry, not the US version. Stephan’s voice is like velvet.) I belong to a planner group ENTIRELY DEVOTED to Harry Potter. We even play for a house cup. So yeah. We’re fans. Crazy fans.
