Found the unicorn diaries today. A very lovely blog you should definitely add to your list. I almost teared up looking at a vingnitte of images from A Little Princess..beautiful and so imaginative. A perfect pick for a snowy christmas eve..

i am so excited to show you this! I am going to be selling some goodies at Finch's Holiday Bazaar this weekend..of course, what I had planned in the grand scheme of my head is not what I ended up with, but this 2009 calendar has been oh so much fun! Inspired by many of my favorite stationary designers, I have come up with my own little lovey dovey version to celebrate 2009!..here is a sneak peek! I am thinking of going etsy with these.. anyone interested?
