DIY - Christmas "for your mistle toes"

CNND9HCG7M8X  -I got this idea from Pinterest and thought it was a cute gift for friends/ extended family.  On Pinterest the "for your mistle toes" note was attached to the nail polish, but I liked the idea of putting it in a little clear plastic bag and finishing it off with a bow.

Painting - watercolours

I found these as I was organizing my room, they are small watercolours I made while in university. There are around 50 in total, and chose 7 to share! Each one is either a depiction of something that happened to me, someone I knew, or something that was said during a conversation that really stood out for me.

DIY - Birch Candles

At my parents cottage there was a fallen birch tree, so I gathered some of the wood and made these tea-light candle holders!  First I used the mitre saw to cut the wood to a desired length, then used a drill with a 1 inch drill bit to make a hole at the top for the tea-light.

Painting a School Logo

In November I had the pleasure of painting the school logo for Luke Mettaweskum School in Nemaska, Quebec on their gymnasium wall. I am very pleased with how it turned out and happy that now the students can show off their pride during school events and tournaments.

DIY - Wood Earrings

DIY - earrings made out of a maple tree branch. 
Used a branch cut from fall pruning. Then used a miter saw to cut the branches - so that it's a nice smooth cut. I used a small nail to hammer in a hole into the branch piece and then used wire to attach it to the fish hook earring.
