  2. Show the Love with #MyPSValentine

    Show love

    Typically, nothing gets the heart fluttering like heart-shaped chocolates, romantic dates, and a bouquet of roses, but we’re a little atypical. For us, nothing compares to receiving (or creating!) a handmade card with a thoughtful message. With Valentine’s Day, quickly approaching, we’re combining two of our favorite things: crafting and spreading love!

  8. One Calendar, Twelve Masterpeices

    DIY Moments: Volume 16 No. 10

    Colorful Calendars Used as Framed Artwork

    Every year, you scour our stores looking for the most beautiful calendar to organize your life with. Once you find the perfect one, you can’t wait to hang it on your wall to marvel at all year long.  Sadly, you only get to look at each picture for one month before having to flip it over or rip it off, never to be seen again. Rather than tossing each picture into the dark abyss, up-cycle your calendar to create wall art that you can admire for years.
