stationeryblog1Happy Sunday friends. I am an excited girl this morning, as I get to finally publish my new stationery line! All of the designs are my own original illustrations or hand-pulled prints. Available are gorgeous, glossy, thick card-stock postcards as well as colourful, matte, half-fold greeting cards printed on sturdy Forest Stewardship Council certified paper. Each comes with it’s own hand-stamped kraft brown envelope made from 100% post-consumer waste. stationeryblog3They are perfect for writing a thoughtful note, sending as a snail mail surprise to a friend, pinning up like a mini-poster on the wall or framing as a small work of art! I have over 20 designs for you to choose from, and have plenty of bundle pack options if you’d like to own more than one! Below are links to each specific listing but if you want to jut see the whole stationery section and browse it yourself, click here. stationeryblog2To celebrate the launch, I am doing an awesome giveaway: anyone who makes a purchase in the next week will automatically be entered to win the limited edition hand-pulled print (seen below) with free shipping and all!

canadian roots

30 Dec

rootscanadaYou all know I am a proud Canadian. I am obsessed with our wildlife, I love exploring our landscapes, and I even collect silly bits of Canadiana like Mountie portraits and beaver paintings. So the other week, when a Canadian icon contacted me personally, I was beyond flattered! The creative team behind Roots Canada‘s instagram page asked to “re-gram” (which means re-post) a recent image of mine as they celebrate Canadian Winter this week. I of course said YES! The image they chose was from several weeks ago featuring my elk and cardinals hand-pulled print. In their post they write “Today we celebrate Northern creatures with beautifully illustrated cardinals and elk by @naturesmyfriend. What do you love most about #canadianwinter?” What a wonderful holiday gift to have one of my images shared with Root’s 10K+ followers; even though we’re in the middle of a Canadian Winter, I feel all warm and tingly! *side note* there are only 2 of these prints left in the edition (available here), after that they will only be available as digitally printed postcards!
