You guys, seriously, how did it get to be 2 days away from Christmas! Even though 98% of my shopping is done and all plans are set, I don’t feel ready. But really, who ever eels ready for Christmas?
If you’re scrambling to get gifts wrapped, gift tags written, and hey, maybe even ornaments up on the tree (I won’t judge you) then these free holiday printables are just what you need.
That little word free is so comforting this expensive time of year isn’t it?
Hope you all have a lovely last couple days getting ready! And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, hope you’re having a beautiful December!
For more holiday inspiration,
head over to my Christmas & New Years Pinterest board.

I still love this painting of Paint, done last year by Kate of Striped Cat Studio
. Paint is my parents’ family dog. Their massive old dog with a puppy personality. He has suffered with arthritis and other ailments for years, and the last two weeks has seen a drastic turn in his health. This morning, he is being put down to end the suffering he has endured for too long. It’s hard to swallow, and I can’t imagine going over to visit my parents and not seeing him lounging under his favourite tree. I’m going to miss that lethal wagging tail (it would knock you right out), his playful manner, and his unending adoration and love.
Paint, you are loved, and you will be missed.
To honour the most loving dog I’ve known, here are 10 of my favourite 10 art pieces honouring our furry friends.

And of course, you can also check out Kate’s Etsy Shop Striped Cat Studio for custom dog portraits.
Sending all my love to Paint and every dog out there

The Proper Pinwheel
Alt Summit is just shy of a month away, and I’m starting to stress about business cards!
If you’re familiar with Alt, you’ll know that first off, business cards aren’t just business cards, and they are a big deal. I was trying to explain it to my brother and he was asking what size the business cards are. My response: “Size? I think you mean what shape. Or if its 2D or 3D. Or if it’s even a card at all”.
You never know what little delight will be passed from hand to hand at Alt!
I have quite a lot of cards left over from last year (can you spot them in 2 photos above?), so I have to be totally lame and reuse my cards, which is possibly the biggest faux pas anyone can make at Alt. But! I have other plans for them, and while they aren’t cemented yet, I’m hoping it will be kinda rad.
But if any of you have suggestions you wanna throw my way, I’m all ears.
Heck if you wanna make them for me that’s cool too. Ya know, just putting it out there.
Will you be attending Alt in June? I’d love to meet you!
