March : : Free Printable Calendar & iPhone Wallpaper : : Simple Life of Cross Stitch & Luck

Good morning! It is beautiful outside all across the country. It’s beautifully sunny and green here in the Bay Area, I hear it’s amazingly warm in Florida and I also here that there’s a gorgeous blanket of snow layering the Midwest (or maybe it’s stained gray by now, but it was definitely white and beautiful when it fell earlier this week.)  

First off, I know that I have been pretty absent on the blog lately…I’m sorry. We have been pretty busy traveling and working lately! My next post will be all about an AMAZING surprise weekend getaway I took my hubby on in late January….to Big Sur!

If you have no idea what or where Big Sur is…just wait until you see the pictures because it is BREATHTAKING! And it was a great relief to get away from all of the traffic and the people that we’re used to in the Bay Area.

So anyway, I have really been missing home and the simple life of Illinois lately, so I tried to mend by homesickness a bit when creating the March downloads. (Dear Illinois, I use the term “simple” in the most flattering, envious way, I promise!) Many times when I went over to friends’ houses, I remember  seeing a hanging frame holding a beautifully stitched rendition of their family name.

I wish I had the patience to cross stitch…or learn how to cross stitch even, but I don’t right now…maybe sometime in the future.

My first virtual cross stitch project was the March calendar and wallpapers. Hope you enjoy your downloads and that you feel lucky throughout the entire month of March!!!

January : : Free Printable Calendar & iPhone Wallpaper : : Nordic Style

Happy New Year my friends! It is officially 2013 and some very significant things happened (and did not happen) this year! Here is a re-cap:

  1. I married my best friend on August 4th! Best day of my life.
  2. I spent the entire year in beautiful California getting acclimated to the perfect and constant 70º weather. It was amazing but it sure made it difficult to visit my hometown in Central Illinois this holiday season. Brrrr!
  3. I started this blog! Slowly but surely I am gaining new followers! Thank you everyone!!!
  4. The world did not end. =) I would like to thank the Mayans for making a big deal about nothing…although the documentaries on this topic were entertaining…

Here are a few of my personal goals for 2013!

  1. Craft more! and of course post all of my tutorials here! (Not sure you have noticed…but have posted ZERO. I’m not happy about it)
  2. Be more conscious of my body and the nutrients I put into it.
  3. Be creative EVERY day! (This is what keeps me sane!)
  4. Wake up earlier on the weekdays and enjoy my mornings (instead of rushing around like a crazy person!)
  5. Continue to post my printable calendars and downloadable iPhone wallpapers each and every month! (Along with just posting more in general!)

And on that note…for the month of January, I’ve created a Nordic-style printable calendar and wallpapers! I love that the Nordic design is so clean, crisp!
