A free Christmas and New Year gift - from Francesca Lancisi

Click here to download English version of this calendar.

I met Francesca Lancisi at a wedding last summer. She told me about her career change from teaching Italian to becoming an artist (beside being a full time mother). Since then, I have followed her on her website and facebook and she has amazed me since. Her drawings are so peaceful and beautiful and her aquarelle collages are so harmonious and fun. She is also doing such a creative job in using the internet to promote her work. For example, she is offering a free downloadable calendar for everybody - to print and give as a gift! I am now offering it to you! Enjoy!

Some days I would like to live in the cool white and grey home, and some days, I want the colours and the mix of contemporary and vintage, and some days I want the romantic and bohème... How do you overcome indecisiveness?

This kind of shop would be a dream to open (even though I would love to have more of the less known design brand names...).

Below is a video and photos I took at Jade's expo (
