fall fox

Meet Charlie the Fox. 
Yesterday he received a scarf his grandma knitted to keep him warm. He thinks that now he’s ready for Fall, which is his favourite season. Charlie loves all the pretty colours on trees, pumpkins and cooler temperatures. He also likes to jump in puddles when it rains. He says hello.


I’ve decided to make Charlie the Fox  a free fall printable for all your crafty, personal needs. It’s sized to 4″x6″ already so it’d fit perfectly in your Project Life album, if you choose to use it for that 😉 Just click on the image then right click and save. Please play nice and don’t claim it as your own and/or sell it for profit. Do tag me on social media when you use it, I would love to see him in your projects! 🙂

happy fall, friends! stay warm & crafty <3


let’s do this

letsdothis_OlyaSchmidt.comSeptember always gives me a renewed sense of adventures, opportunities and a brand new start if you will. As I reflect on the happy summer days we’ve just had I also think about what I would like the last four months of 2015 to bring, both personally and professionally. One of the things I would like to bring back is blogging on semi regular basis. Blogging about my Project Life pages, art journals, upcoming classes and life-changing books. Blogging about the people that inspire me on daily basis, the crafty Instagram community,  traveling I’ve done (& still about to do) this year and many other things. I’ve always struggled to keep my blog posts regular (and let’s be honest Instagram makes it too easy to just post a photo with a few sentences or even words and get that Insta-gratification of feedback), but I’m not giving up on this little blog. Not yet. I’m still here, 5 years later, trying to keep it going.

So, hello there, September. Let’s do this.
