Happy Canada Day - July 1st
I want to wish a Happy Canada Day to all Canadians from coast to coast to coast and to Canadians abroad. What does it mean to you to be Canadian? We'd love to hear from you. Post it on our Instagram page or email us at email@example.com and we will post your thoughts about what it means for you to be Canadian.
I was born in Italy and arrived in Canada in 1967, being Canadian means I am included into a multi cultural fabric woven with beautiful, colourful threads from individuals who come from around the world to make Canada their home. Vive le Canada!
This beautiful piece of art is by Patrick Hunter, a Toronto based artist who is Two-Spirit Ojibway. Patrick captures the essence of Canada in this piece of work. Thank you Patrick!

The Billet Doux Shop
Greeting Card Collection by Maria Connell
Visit the gallery store and browse the Billet Doux (Bil-lay-doo) collection of greeting cards designed by Maria. Billet Doux is a French term that means a sweet note, a love note. Choose from a variety of beautiful and original greeting cards in the shop. Send a card to that special someone, a friend, or family member just to let them know you are thinking about them. When you give a Billet Doux greeting card, you are giving the gift of art and greeting cards or "les billets doux" never go out of style despite advancements in technology, snail mail continues to trend upwards. It's not just the card that counts but the action too!
