Terrarium Print

This Sunday I held a craft meet up at my house. We made terrariums of every shape and size. In honor of the event, I made these 5×7  illustrated prints. You can get them here. Stay tuned, a DIY terrarium post is in the works.

• 5″x7″ sized print
• printed on 210g archival soft white cover stock

If you’d like a larger size of this print, please contact me and request a custom order.

DIY 2011 Calendar

Where I work people do Christmas in a big way—which means food, gifts, more food, repeat. I knew I would have to partake in the office gift giving, but I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. I decided to DIY it of course, and create something for my co-workers that was both pretty and useful—which is why I made these 2011 calendars. I love to hand draw patterns and awhile back began archiving some of my favorites. I scanned my patterns into the computer, and using illustrator, formatted them into an image for the calendar header. I printed them on card stock paper, punched a hole in the top to hang a ribbon, and trimmed the edges with a  quarter inch rounded punch.

I was happy with the results and so were my co-workers; now the office is full of these cheerful calendars. Kelsey of Minted Life posted about another great DIY holiday office gift idea, here is her How-To on making these adorable hot chocolate filled ornaments.
