Ok so the amazingly talented and beautiful craft goddess Brittany Jepsen of The House that Lars Built and I held this super fun contest last week where people had to instagram inspiration pics for a new gift wrap design. I finally finished the artwork and drumroll please...dun dun dunnnnn! Our winner is Hannah Salazar AKA @HannahShawnee. Her beautiful photo of pine branches was just too good to not use for a new pattern. Hannah will receive a custom roll of gift wrap as the winner of the #giftwrapinspirationcontest...2013! We might just have to make this an annual tradition. Thanks to everyone who played, it was so lovely to see what inspired your ideal wrapping papers.

Design by Kathryn Zaremba 2013.


Our 2014 KZCO Calendars are here and JUST in time before the Holidays truly get under way. These will make such great gifts I simply had to make it happen! Luckily my day is full of play so it wasn't too difficult to get them finished ~ all play and no work...right? So here is the break down: 2014 KZCO Calendars are limited edition wall calendar prints perfectly sized for the kitchen, office, or studio at 11"X14" inches. Each on is $22.50 USD however if you post a comment here and follow me on instagram: @kathrynzaremba you'll have a few chances to win one of these gems before you can say Thanksgiving, Hannukak and Christmas in one breath! ~ KZ


My friend Brittany Jepsen and I have been wanting to collaborate for ages and it's finally happened! She has brilliantly gussied up some of my gift wrap with these amazing gift toppers. Check-out it all out on her website where you can download the templates and make your own. The kicker is we are doing a contest right now on instagram! Post a pic to inspire a new gift wrap design THEN I'll create a new pattern based on YOUR inspiration. The winner gets a roll of the gift wrap they helped to create ~ so cool! Follow @kathrynzaremba and @houselarsbuilt to play. Oh yes! #giftwrapinspirationcontest ~ Can't wait to see yours!
