WREATH_MADEWITHLOVE_Ia_BESOTTED BLOGI am very excited to be adding some new offerings before holiday!  I know from how many times the hand drawn wreaths have been downloaded (a mind boggling amount) that people want a hand drawn wreath in their life so I decided to pair it with Miss Jess’s amazing Jacob Riley font.  I usually don’t disclose the fonts I use in my designs but this is one that I just love and I think may get overlooked in all her beautiful script offerings, you need to own it (and hopefully my stamp), also take a peek at Saltpetre as well!  I think this stamp will be perfect when prepared with your homemade cookie recipe, I made it so it could fit on the large parcel tags where you can write a note to your recipient on the back! I believe it will have a longer life than just holiday so it’s an excellent addition to your stamp arsenal.


Our postmark stamps have been a favorite since I launched them way back when with my first shop.  I have never done a separate cancellation stamp before but thought it would be a sweet addition to this new offering, I hope you like it as well!  You can always get your own custom postmark stamp here and add your own creative text! I have a few more pieces and a new ink color to reveal but I think in the interim I should be giving away one of the above stamps, don’t you?

Just answer the following question by, Sunday, October 27, 2013:

  1. The answer i definitivly “le petit bonhomme”. Sounds like “Have you seen it, have you seen it , the little man with his funny hat”. My elder daughter has learnt it at school when she was 4 years old and sung it during months every day !!! So it’s a nice and awful memory at the same time (she’s now a teenager. :-)

  2. My favorite is just plain and simple, “The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole, or any cover of it. It just warms my heart and soul :)

  3. My favorite is ‘Baby it’s cold outside’ specifically the version by Zooey Deschanel and Leon Redbone. I could listen to it over and over while doing holiday crafting in front of the fire with hot chocolate in hand! Hooray for Christmas!

  4. My favorite Christmas song (although it is so hard to choose) is “Merry Christmas, Darling” by Karen Carpenter in the secular genre. In the spiritual genre, it would have to be “O Come O Come Emmanuel”. But if truth be told, I love them all and I start playing them in November, even before Thanksgiving!

  5. Oh, it’s a toss up between Judy Garland singing “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” or Bing Crosby’s “Dreaming of a White Christmas”. Both give me the toastiest, warm feeling during the holiday season.

  6. OK! Only from us would you get this, our truly favorite while sipping hot cocoa with homemade marshmallows each year: I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas Tail wags ~moose

  7. I will always remember Christmas mornings when my dad would put on Bing Crosby’s record “White Christmas”
    Such wonderful memories…

  8. Mine is “The Dreidel Song” because I have fond memories of many years of standing around the menorah with my two children, and, whether they were 3 or 13 singing away in the candlelight.

    Your new stamps look wonderful, and, since I make many gifts throughout the year, the Made with Love stamp would add a very special touch!

  9. Your stamps are so fun!!!! My favorite Christmas song has recently changed with having munchkins….it used to be “O Holy Night” and now it is “Up on the Rooftop” just because it is so fun to hear the kiddos sing it. Simple wonderful memories in the making.

  10. I can hardly wait to break out my Christmas mix and have started looking for something new to add – maybe a bit of country music. The first song that came to mind was “O Holy Night” but there are very few I do not love.

  11. I can’t stop listening to Amy Grant’s “I need a silent night”… and it’s not quite Halloween yet! Eek :)

  12. These are just beautiful Tristan….I’m completely smitten!
    ‘Little Donkey’ is not heard often but I love it so…
    (given I was lucky enough to win a wonderful gift just a few weeks ago, I don’t expect to be placed in the draw for this little bestowal, it’s someone else’s turn after all…) x
