December : : Free Calendar & Downloadable Wallpaper! : : I Love You My Deer!

It’s beginning to look feel a lot like Christmas! 

With 30 degree temps here in Illinois, it is certainly beginning to feel a lot like winter! That means that decorating for the holidays is just around the corner and its bittersweet!

We have SO much to do around our new home that we purchased in October! Case in point: Painting (every single room), hardware changes, organizing everything, unpacking (yes..still), getting the nursery ready (yay!), furnace trouble (boo), filing and re-filing all sorts of paperwork……..so this means that decorating for the holidays is waaaaaay at the bottom of the “real” priority list but, it’s on the top of the “feel good” priority list. (i.e. – I don’t really need to do these things, but it just makes my heart happy to do them and see them all pretty!)

So…my heart has won the battle and we are doing just *a little* decorating this year…just a tad.

On a different note, I have been so obsessed with doodling lately (mainly on my iPad), so I am sharing one of my pretties with you in the form of the downloadable December 2013 calendar and phone wallpaper (two versions!). A sweet, little deer!

April : : Free Printables & Downloadable Wallpapers! : : Put a Bird On It…

Happy April Fools Day!I hope you got to play a few tricks on family members, co-workers or unsuspecting strangers today! I’m not into the whole “tricking” thing…I feel like Karma will come back and get me if I try anything at all! Plus I’m married to a if-you-get-me-I’ll-get-you-worse kind of guy…and I surely don’t want to start a prank war with the hubbie! Who knows what he would do to my make-up or hair products (and we certainly don’t want him messing with those!)

Anyway, I wanted to share a fun site with you all! It’s called Pic Monkey! [www.picmonkey.com] I just discovered this site recently and it’s so fun! Chalkboard designs are all the craze now and sometimes you just don’t have the time or patience to sit down and physically draw on a chalkboard. Well…this site has lots of great fonts and all you have to do is download this chalkboard background, upload it to Pic Monkey and design away!

Or if you aren’t interested in designing your own chalkboard design, I have created a few for you to download! Free of charge, my gift to you…don’t mention it 🙂

Oh, one more thing, I know that my hubbie gives me a hard time about a) being terrified of birds and b) buying notebooks, candle holders, clothes, home decor and making crafts all with birds on them. When I made the second design, I knew the hubbie would get a good laugh especially when he remembers the Portlandia skit “Put a Bird On It.” The skit is hysterical…it’s 2 minutes of your life that you’ll never get back…but it will certainly give you a chuckle. Click HERE to watch it! You’ll thank me later…

Not only do I have those beautiful chalkboard designs for you but I also have the April 2013 Printable Calendar and Downloadable iPhone Wallpaper for you! These make me so happy…there is just something so fun about polka dots and floral! (Oh, and there is a white version for those of you who don’t enjoy polka dots as much as I do…shame on you!) Enjoy!

Free Printable Calendar & iPhone Wallpaper: : December!

Hello! Carissa here…I am wondering how in the world is it already December?

This year has just flown by and very soon it will be 2013 and we will start all over again…(sigh)This month I am very excited because my husband and I will be traveling home to Illinois (for you non-Midwesterners, the “s” is silent) to see our friends and family! This will be the first time that we have visited this year while not planning a wedding. (I will post on our wedding later…but just to give you a taste, I think my wedding planning mindset was “Let’s-see-how-many-important-wedding-items-I-can-DIY-while-working-full-time.” It was a success but a stressful one…)

Anyway, here is this month’s calendar and iPhone download! Yippee! If you have any suggestions for January’s downloads, please let me know!

Enjoy, Spread the Word & Happy Holidays!!!
