A Sweet Celebration–Tessa’s 1st birthday party

Sweet Celebration

We had a cupcake-themed birthday party for my baby girl on Saturday. Here are the details as promised. INVITATION: I have been trying to do most of my designing digitally lately, but then add an element by hand that gives more of a handmade feel. This entire invitation is digital, except for the cupcake liner […]

The family that dresses up together for Halloween…

…has a lot of fun memories! I really don’t have time to be blogging right now. I am in the middle of all kinds of blog-worthy projects. My miracle workers (a.k.a. parents) are in-town, helping me attack an insane amount of home improvement/décor projects for the next week, or so. On top of that, my […]

Tip Junkie…

Remember this…? and this…? Well they are being featured today over at Tip Junkie, along with several other fun ideas for Baby Showers.

Baby Scrapbook Idea

I just read this idea of a fun approach to a baby scrapbook, and I think I will try and do it for my little one’s first b-day in Oct. I think I will design it digitally, so I can have it printed in a hard bound book for her to look at and read. […]

Insanity Still Reigns!

In fact, it is taking over my life! I was getting in a pretty good blogging groove, but between two trips and MOVING(!) houses, there’s not a lot of time to even log-on, these days. I’ve got tons of stuff I want to post, but in the meantime, I will leave you with one of […]

Aren’t these the cutest?!?

I stumbled on a blog that was suggesting that we could make our own canvas wall-hangings for much cheaper than the ones they sell at places like Pottery Barn, and I remembered that I had not shared the adorable wall hangings that we made for my niece’s nursery, yet. My mom did the hard part, […]

More Monograms

Actually, a whole name this time! Kameron made these as a gift for a new baby. The possibilities are endless! (See previous post)

Wild Invitation

I finally got a copy of the shower invitation to post. The strip across the bottom was actually covering a mistake, but I think it ended up adding to the design!

A monkey in his habitat

Remember my monkey cake a while back? Well, here are a few pictures of our monkey baby in his habitat at the baby shower. It was an easy theme for decorating since most of the decorations were gifts for the baby or things we already had.
