is it already february?
Seriously -- is it just me, or has the past month virtually flown by? Given that February also happens to be my birthday month (I'm a Groundhog Day baby!) maybe it's more about my age increasing and less about the time passing? Who knows, but if you do find out where January ran off to, please let me know.
A Month In Review...
January in Northern Ontario is generally a time where you invest in some comfy sweats, a warm drink, and Netflix on repeat. As an introvert, that's really not something I tend to complain about. Somewhere in 2016 I began shifting my focus and started harnessing new abilities and sharpening old skills. January, being the first month of the year, really serves as an opening act for the coming months. I wanted to start my year off well and accomplished just that: I worked hard, I gained traction in certain creative/professional projects, and I hit the ground running.
The month ahead...
February is my favourite month of the year. For me, this month is all about self-care. I'm already booking appointments I've been slacking on, scheduling meetings that could really benefit my work, and really just putting heart into my plans. I'm celebrating my birthday with those nearest and dearest, and spending quality time where it matters. Suffice it to say that I'm really looking forward to the month ahead.
Here are the articles I published in January:
This past January, I've been working a TON on my lettering business, Maverick Design & Co.
I've created an Etsy shop, designed a Facebook page, and I've been keeping busy with commissioned work.
Here are some pictures of that work!
(A thank you note designed to show appreciation to customers on behalf of a new younique consultant!)
(A glimpse of the most recent project I've been working on — a custom lettering piece on wood!)

quote of the day:
“We’re not on this stage just because of talent or ability.
February, despite the cold weather, represents feelings of affection and devotion to me. Separate and aside from it being Valentine's day this month, it's personal as it's the month I was born. I wanted to convey the love I have for February in this wallpaper, and so the colour scheme contrasted with the dark shadows was an instant hit for me.
You know the drill! Click on the link you want and save that baby! Or, you can download one of each if you wish. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it!
Wishing you all a warm February full of heart and laughter.
Friendly reminder: As always, wallpaper downloads will be free, but keeping up with everything is hard work and I would love to continue putting in the hours. If you would like to send a tip or buy me a coffee, you can share your love this way: paypal.me/shanleighwats
