Moment of the Day

My husband asked the girls to get their shoes on so they can ride bikes and go to the park. My four year old puts her finger to her lip in her "I'm thinking pose" and finally says, "That's a long way, let's take the barbie jeep".

Daddy won...

Alabama Houndstooth Wedding Invitations

These invitations were so much fun to design. The bride wanted a fun Houndstooth style invitation that let everyone know that the party would be family friendly. This design is a great choice for the modern bride who wants a more casual, fun style party vs. the classic, formal invitations. Let me know if I can custom design a wedding invitation for you! I offer many print options to fit all budgets.

Puppy Reading a Book

This adorable puppy is reading your book! These bookplate stickers are perfect for your child's library and can be customized with any color scheme. Additionally I can design a bookplate to match your child's favorite colors, hobby, animal, sport, etc. These are stickers with a UV gloss on the front for lifetime wear and tear on the books. You will receive a set of 25 3 inch by 3 inch bookplates. If you decide to write on them, I would recommend using a sharpie. Purchase your personal design in my store.

My daughter's ever expanding library

My 7 year old loves to read and as an avid reader myself, it is the one thing I can't say no to. If we are in a bookstore and she finds a new book she wants to read, I am all about it!! We have tried our local library but it's small and she doesn't have a lot of options. There is a larger library across town but honestly by the time I drive the 25 minutes to and from and then to and from again to return it, I spent the cost of the book on gasoline.

So getting to the point of my long winded blog post. She is also starting to share her books with friends. Today her buddy brought over 8 new Rainbow Fairy books for my daugther to read. Since we are starting to share our books, I thought it was important to put her name in them. My hand writing is not pretty so of course I designed book plates. They turned out adorable and since I print them in 25's we can do new designs often. Both my girls are thrilled and we went through the first set of 25 in about an hour.

If you need book plates designed, let me know! I am happy to design one around you or your child's favorite things, sports, hobbies, colors, pets, etc. And the fun thing is, years down the road, you'll remember when you bought the books and what your child was interested in because of the themed bookplates. You can purchase your set for $24.50 here or request a custom design.

Pink Jungle Enclosure Cards

Purchase your Jungle Enclosure Cards here
Pink Jungle Photo Enclosure Cards are still one of my favorite Enclosure card designs. These are printed on 2x3.5 Cardstock and include a design on the front and back.  I use REAL LIQUID INK.  for a rich finish vs a dry ink process that leaves dots in the colors.  I highly recommend Pearl Cardstock for this design.

This Moment Starts Today

I've recently started reading Little Miss Momma's blog and she posts a This Moment post every friday. {this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. She got her inspiration from SouleMama so of course I checked out SouleMama's blog. So many amazing women!  I've definitely not done the best with my blog but I am going to try to do better. These women have inspired me. Here is to a new day!
