Stamp It Up in Support of Mental Health

January 15, 2011

My friend Bridget came up with the following entry for the Canada Post Mental Health Stamp Design Competition … I think she did a great job and that the competition itself is a very cool idea. If you like Bridget’s design, please give it vote on the site  … I know she would really appreciate your support.

Today’s CSOTD (Creative Something of the Day) is dedicated to my ultra cool sister who is on a knitting tear … she’s made matching hats for herself, my Dad and me … Mom’s next! Thanks Em … you know I’m still eyeing those cable wrist warmers.

After 10 years of not being able to eat apples, my sister just found out that she  can now munch on these awesome fruits! (Way to go, Em!) … and boo on food allergies!

My sis is behind mchenwears, some pretty fabulous self-designed and printed clothing, from t-shirts to onesies to t-dresses … and she’s celebrating her one year Etsy-versary with a fun giveaway where you can win a $50 credit at her online store. The draw happens tomorrow (sorry for the late post) so you still have time to enter by visiting here.

Good luck to all those who enter!

And here’s my CSOTD for today:

My sister recently wrote a post about her honeybee rescue so I thought I’d add to it with this cute/funny clip that shows off some stinging dance moves and promotes a thoughtful message at the same time (courtesy of Haagen Dazs’ loves Honey Bees campaign):

Love them costumes and bee hats!

And for today’s CSOTD (Creative Something of the Day):

Just wanted to share some photos I took of a friend’s Labradoodle puppy that I was lucky enough to dogsit yesterday afternoon. I quickly learned that if you’re interested in meeting new people, all you need to do is take one of these cute little fellas for a walk around the block:

I think he inspired me enough to come up with two drawings for today’s CSOTD (Creative Something of the Day) which fits in pretty well with the puppy pics:
