Christmas Cards Made Easy!

What goes hand in hand with Christmas? Crafting, of course!

But honestly, between the baking/sweet making, and all the shopping and wrapping of Christmas presents, who has the time to make a thoughtful card?

This year, I do!

That’s because of this book, which was so kindly sent over. It’s called Christmas Paper Crafting: Holiday Cards, Gift Tags, and More! and it’s absolutely brilliant. It makes me feel like a regular ol’ Martha Stewart, but with 90% less effort.

Price: CAD 24.99 (but it’s currently CAD 17.30 on Amazon.ca right now!)

It comes packed full of designs to make:

  • 50 Christmas cards
  • 18 mini cards
  • 16 gift tags
  • 6 bookmarks
  • Envelope templates (in 2 sizes)
  • Scrapbooking paper

The colors are festive, but not so festive that they cannot be used for winter birthdays. I don’t think that these designs are only applicable for the Christmas season – they are surprisingly versatile! The graphics are a mix of traditional and modern design, combined with bright and bold colours.  All papers are archival quality, acid free, card-stock thickness. This book is for the avid crafter or the lazy crafter (ahem, me) so I sure as hell know it’s going to make my gift wrapping/giving process a lot easier!

Yes, I am still alive!

Now back to a post I wrote a while back but never properly finished.

I must have had my head stuck in the sand all these years, but I actually didn’t know the Green Living Show was a thing until I was invited to attend this year. I’m glad my eyes were opened though as there were many interesting vendors in all categories: beauty, food, furniture, automotive, etc.

The Green Living Show is North America’s largest consumer show dedicated to simple solutions for leading a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. It is put together by Green Living Enterprises, Canada’s leading cause-marketing agency focused on social and environmental program development.

There were so many unique and innovative vendors, but here are just a few that caught my eye…and my wallet.
