Free Valentine's Day Card Printable!

I am so bad with card buying! I always wait until the last minute to do anything. Thankfully there is always something online I can find just in the nick of time. Now, thankfully for you, I thought of all the people out there like me and made a free Valentine's day card. On the outside, there is a cute design I did. For the inside, it is blank so you can confess your love to someone or draw a sick picture like I always do! The best type of paper to print this on is 8.5 x 11 Cardstock paper. You can find card stock at your local Walmart or Staples. There is also a perfect line dividing the paper so you know where to fold! Show someone you care about how much they mean to you. Hope you enjoy!

5 Most Influential Poems for Girls

When I was younger I wasn't really aware of much. It wasn't until my parents divorced that I really became aware of the things around me. I felt different. I felt as if glasses came off and I could see the world differently. I didn't know how to put my feelings into words and because of this I always felt like I was unintelligent. I didn't pay attention in school because I thought I was headed nowhere. Years after school and after some bad experiences I came across poetry. I always thought poetry was that "lame thing I couldn't understand in my grade 10 English class". In reality, poetry put everything that was in my head into words. During this time I had to take ENC 1102. My professor was amazing. She was into poetry and classical English literature which ended up being the start of many after class talks which showed me a whole new side of reading altogether. I wish I discovered poetry at a younger age but as for anyone else feeling the same way I did here are some great poems every girl should read:

1. "Lady Lazarus" by Sylvia Plath 


2. "For Women Who Are Difficult To Love" by Warsan Shire


3."Today" by Lang Leav


4. "Still I Rise" by Maya Angelou

5. "I'm Over The Moon" by Brenda Shaughnessy

I don’t like what the moon is supposed to do.
Confuse me, ovulate me,

spoon-feed me longing. A kind of ancient
date-rape drug. So I’ll howl at you, moon,

I’m angry. I’ll take back the night. Using me to
swoon at your questionable light,

you had me chasing you,
the world’s worst lover, over and over

hoping for a mirror, a whisper, insight.
But you disappear for nights on end

with all my erotic mysteries
and my entire unconscious mind.

How long do I try to get water from a stone?
It’s like having a bad boyfriend in a good band.

Better off alone. I’m going to write hard
and fast into you moon, face-fucking.

Something you wouldn’t understand.
You with no swampy sexual

promise but what we glue onto you.
That’s not real. You have no begging

cunt. No panties ripped off and the crotch
sucked. No lacerating spasms

sending electrical sparks through the toes.
Stars have those.

What do you have? You’re a tool, moon.
Now, noon. There’s a hero.

The obvious sun, no bulls hit, the enemy
of poets and lovers, sleepers and creatures.

But my lovers have never been able to read
my mind. I’ve had to learn to be direct.

It’s hard to learn that, hard to do.
The sun is worth ten of you.

You don’t hold a candle
to that complexity, that solid craze.

Like an animal carcass on the road at night,
picked at by crows,

haunting walkers and drivers. Your face
regularly sliced up by the moving

frames of car windows. Your light is drawn,
quartered, your dreams are stolen.

You change shape and turn away,
letting night solve all night’s problems alone.

Customizable Blog Planner Kit!

So if you don't know I have been studying graphic design since high school and continue to do it as my college major. I love creating things so much that I wanted to start sharing what I create. As I start to get more serious about my blog I realized that there were no blog planners that had EVERYTHING I wanted. My friend Ashleigh, or as most know her, Sewrella, told me how she was having the same problem. She didn't have a blog planner that met her expectations. So for fun, I told her I wanted to create a blog planner just for her. We collaborated on things she needed for inside a  planner such as social media links, places for notes and so on. As an added bonus I added her logo! I mean who doesn't love things that are marked just for them. At the end, I really loved the idea of making customizable blog planners!

So now I decided to share it with you! I am now offering Customizable Blog Planner Kits in my Etsy shop! There are a couple of things which will be added: 

Customizations can include layout, decal (logo, blog name, actual name) and colours.

Each kit comes with 5 pages which you can pick out:

If a specific, desired page is not listed you can also suggest a page you would like to have.
