Love is stronger than hate

Je suis Charlie, Charlie Hebdo, love is stronger than hate, freedom of speech and expression

Je suis Charlie.
We shouldn’t be afraid of our freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Let’s spread love, not hate or violence.

2015 Resolutions printable

Resolutions, new year, 2015, to do list

Hi friends! Happy New Year! I’m still trying to grasp exactly how it’s already 2015…but embrace it, right? First and foremost, I just want to take the time out to say how thankful I am to each and every one of you who have made this past year truly amazing! I’ve worked with some amazing, talented, and inspirational people and friends, grown in so many ways, discovered new things, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2015. To all my readers: Thank you for your support, your guidance, and all your daily love! You’ve made this quite an enjoyable space!

. . .

Now, back to today’s post: I’m not usually the type of person to ever make traditional New Year’s resolutions, but I do however, have a list going on in my head (and of course, on paper) of things that I hope to accomplish in the new year. I’m never too hard on myself (I mean, seriously, when do I ever keep up with working out?) but it’s always good to have a list there to remind yourself of goals you had/have, or something to look back on to see how many things you’ve checked off your list at the end of the year.

Audrey and I have teamed up again to bring you this free printable Resolutions page for your new year! (Meant to perfectly complement the printable 2015 calendar we created for you!) …And why? Because this is your year! Take charge and make this your year. You really are capable of doing and accomplishing everything you put your mind to.

Happy 2015!

Tell me, what are some of your resolutions for the new year?

Happy New Year // 2015 Calendar printable (free!)

December 29, 2014

Printable calendar, 2015 printable calendar, freebie, free download, calligraphy, hand lettering, watercolor

Ahhh, Happy Holidays, friends!! I feel like I’ve been MIA lately and disconnected from social media (again?)…but in fact, I’ve been immersed in holiday “stuffs” and moments…hanging out with friends, baking cookies, ice skating, enjoying a glass(es) of wine over good conversation, candles, and Christmas lights. It’s been nice. So fresh. I wish to hang on to this feeling for just a little bit more before work begins again in the New Year!

How are your holidays treating you??

Well, as promised, my partner in crime, Audrey and I have teamed up to bring you a printable 2015 Calendar! Audrey from This Little Street created the month graphics (amazing and fun, right?!) and I created the lettering. We hope you enjoy it and find good use for it!

Happy 2015, friends!! Wishing you a wonderful, healthy, and prosperous new year.

Happy Tech // December 2014

December 19, 2014

Happy Tech, This Little Street, free desktop wallpaper, freebies, downloads, calligraphy, hand lettering, watercolor, art print, december wallpaper, Christmas 2014 holiday wallpaper

Never too late, right?! Happy December!! (just a few…maybe a lot of days late) BUT, I feel like this month has just flown by and even though I say this every month (I know, I know), December is an exception because really, there is so much *bleep* going down for everyone and I feel like we’re all in our own whirlwinds of holiday shopping, wrapping, partying, working, blah blah blah. I finally shipped out my Christmas gifts with *fingers crossed* hope that it’ll get home to Hawaii before Christmas. And now, I can finally take a long sigh of relief……..for only a brief moment before I have to now focus on work and holiday party stuffs.

Anyway, Audrey and I have created this December wallpaper for you to enjoy! (download below) Just a little reminder that despite all the crazy holiday happenings going on (believe me, I have had a few of my own personal melt-down “Grinch” moments), don’t forget it’s the season of giving, a season of being with family and friends, and most of all, a season to be merry!! So don’t forget to smile!

And for those of you who have been inquiring about a 2015 calendar (thank you for the huge amazing bunch of you who downloaded + enjoyed my 2014 calendar! I loved seeing photos of them that you have posted on social media!) – stay tuned because I’ll be sharing one very soon soon soon!!

Happy Holidays!
