You know when you meet people that just ooze joy, warmth, and talent? People that you just know are going to do great things because they’re such go getters? One such person: Trisha Zemp! Trisha was one of my very first interns and she has only continued to amaze me with her creative journey and accomplishments. We were pleased as punch to be able to create a cover design for her brand new planner company, Golden Coil that’s being released on Kickstarter TODAY! And let me tell you, these planners are amazing!

Browsing vintage items on Etsy is a never-ending source of inspiration for me. You really never know what you’re going to find! For today’s holiday project, I was inspired by this vintage brooch. I stumbled upon a few months ago. I love how festive it is – it actually reminded me of Brittany’s oversized berry and holly garland from a few years ago! The brooch already looks like a mini wreath, so I simply made red pom poms to be the berries and cut green felt into leaves and voila! A DIY felt holly wreath! I’m already thinking of making another one in muted colors, with some glitter applied onto the edges of the leaves. For now though, I’m excited to hang this wreath on my door to celebrate this Christmas season!
If sending out Christmas cards isn’t the funnest thing, then designing your own certainly is! I think I’ve made it pretty clear how much I adore cards. From the envelope to the stamps to the handwritten note, there is nothing sweeter! So when I was given the opportunity to collaborate with Hallmark Signature to create a line of Christmas cards I was tickled pink. This was way better than dancing sugar plum fairies!
