Happy New Year! While it is nice to think that we can leave all of our problems behind in 2020 I understand that’s pretty far from reality. Maybe it’s wishful thinking but it seems like we’re heading into this year with a little extra hope though. As far as this awful virus is concerned may…


December

Turns out, it’s not just good things that must come to an end.¬† Here we have it, the first day of the last month of 2020. It’s been quite the journey. With the short days, dropping temperatures, and cranky family members it’s really starting to feel like the holidays! This year may have¬†added an extra…


November

After a full moon and an extra hour – welcome November! Rumor has it, or so Google has told me, that we have 25 days until the upcoming Turkey Day arrives this year. I know for many it isn’t going to look like last year but I think we have a some fun opportunities ahead of…


October

Good morning and happy fall! I don’t know about y’all but over the last week I have had so much more energy and motivation. I blame it on the weather. This season sparks so much inspiration that I just can’t help myself. It could just boil down to a change in scenery but I think…


September

Here in my household this last month has held a lot of activity. I’ve been trying out a good many things. From gardening and peach jam to self-love and gravity yoga I personally feel I’ve incurred at least a small amount of transformation. It seems only fitting that now during the end of summer I’ve…


August

Ahoy there mateys! Okay, okay that was a bit cheesy even for me. But I’ve been dreaming of the seas lately and the ocean is on my mind. This month though I combined those two concepts: dreaming and sailing. It all started when inspiration struck and I wanted to create a ship-in-a-bottle greeting card for…


July

Whew! What a summer start. The heat is here, my lilies are blooming, and all things beach are coming your way! Starting today gift tag stickers are now launched and available for purchase. I’ve got fish, I’ve got shells, I’ve got sun! Four colors are featured this season as well – Stone, Sunflower, Melon, and…


June

Halfway through 2020 and it is already a different world than when the year started. Not only is the world changing, so is my business, and myself. This website is now officially the source of Handmade by Vi subscriptions! Patreon packages will no longer ship and the page will close at the end of this…


May

What a time to be alive, eh? This extended time at home has opened my eyes in a lot of ways. As I’m sure it has with you as well. Spring has bloomed all around me but each flower is capturing my interest much more than I feel it would have without the pandemic. The…


April

I have persistently had the saying ‘April showers brings May flowers’ stuck in my head for weeks – so I rolled with it! Though blue is often a gloomy color I didn’t want to reflect that this month given the current state of the world. There is enough gloom to go around so instead I…


March

This year is the first time I’ve been SO excited for spring. Even losing an hour will not stop me from getting pumped about longer days! Moving out into the woods has really made me appreciate sunlight ? For the March packages I tried two new things. I used a colored ink (featured above) and…


February

Every year it’s the shortest month and every year I am surprised at how quickly it goes… This year for February I’ve gone all out on a gilded tea-rose and clementine theme. Kinda fell in love with the elegant vibes – I hope y’all did too! Adding gold touches was so much fun. There are…
