Custom Christmas Cards!

Back in July(!), Jim and I decided we would really like to make custom Christmas cards to send out to our friends and family. We love Tanya's work for her letterpress company, Snap+Tumble so we contacted her with our idea based on this holiday tune.What Tanya came up with is so beautiful, we couldn't wait to drop them in the mail.

Our little family of two cats and two humans wish you and your loved ones a very merry holiday!

Good Night, Day Pattern
I've been bitten by the crafting bug. Tara-Lynn, extraordinary knitter/designer behind Good Night, Day, created a gorgeous booklet of her knitting patterns. In a weekend I completed the Simcoe Headband and started on a Meaford Cowl. What I appreciated most, as a knitter, was her helpful customization instructions with each pattern to make them to your own specifications!

Grainline whale ornaments
Next, I went absolutely crazy for Jen's Narwhal ornament pattern. I rushed out for the proper supplies and headed to the Workroom to use one of their machines (thank goodness for the Workroom!). My favorite part of making these whales had to be sewing on the sequins (though, now I know why sequined garments cost so much, it is a labour of love to sew each one on!).
