29 days to Christmas

Advent Calenders are the best! If you're thinking of making one for someone special, now's the time to collect your materials!

Advent calender
I've made a few calendars over the year and they are always so much fun to make. Basically just collect 24 or 25 (depending when you celebrate Christmas) little prizes, candy, toys, stationery, etc... Wrap them up in little packages, number them from 1 to 24 or 25 and you're done!

Advent calender
Best thing ever!

These photos are from a few years ago... I can't really share this years calenders so I won't ruin the surprise!

Do you have a calender for this year? What kind?

Mail Monday

Hello, hello everyone!

It's still looking very much like fall and I love it! My head is completely on Christmas things already, but I'm trying to keep it somewhat restrained for a little while longer. I've been making many, many holiday items for the shop and creating some brand new ones too! More about those later.

I do have a few pieces of mail to share with you for now.


honeycomb Let's start with a new style, honeycomb. I've been working a lot with this shape recently and naturally it spills over to my snailmail as well. I really like the look of it, there will be many more...

vintage stamps The second one if a very simple one. It was father's day in Finland yesterday, so I sent something to my dad last week. The envelope is a plain white one, but the vintage stamps are the key to the look.


Black, white and pink, incoming
This awesome black, white and pink one is from Mary. I love the stripes. I find working with paper like this is really hard, lining up the stripes can be tough! This is her second ever handmade envelope, so it'll be a collectors item when she's famous! (It also came with chocolate, so I really enjoyed it!)

So, what's up with you guys? Been up so something fun recently?

I might not be a particularly romantic person, but I can't get over how much I love fall.

Just look how gorgeous it is.

November at the Beaches, Toronto How is it looking where you are? Is it fall for you or is it looking a lot like winter?*
