Spring 2014 Birth Announcements

Oh!  I’ve neglected my blog. Perhaps because I’ve been furiously designing some birth announcements for the new babies planning to hit the ground running (well maybe not running, exactly) this spring and summer!  I am so excited to be collaborating with two talented photographers now, as well: Brandi Mignard of Muddy Feet Photography in Tennessee, and Sarah Gray of Sarah Gray Photography in Tallahassee, Florida.  Here are the new Spring 2014 birth announcements–watch for a few new ones to hit the shop every few weeks!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Be Mine

Remember Valentine’s Day in elementary school?  We all made our homemade Valentine’s Day mailboxes, then each student would put a small valentine (hopefully with candy attached, or else “no thank you” to the card itself) inside–while other girls  hoped for a special valentine from the cute boy, I hoped for special candy from anyone–chocolate?  Yes, please.  And so began a lifelong love affair with the true keeper of my heart : Hershey’s.

I am so very excited for my son’s first Valentine’s Day at school.  Because he is so much like me, I know he will treasure each card from his classmates, and that most importantly, he will savor the delectable treats attached! I’m also thrilled to send in some lovely, but simple, valentine cards for his friends at school–these are an affordable way to treat your child’s classmates to a personal card this V-day. Simply purchase, allow me to customize, then print and send in with your kid!

Modern Florals

Ok, I fought it for awhile, but I am currently OBSESSED with the modern take on florals that we’re seeing all over the stationery runway. Abstract, messy, muted tones make these haphazard beauties gorgeous in an imperfect way.  Here’s my take on the trend for a few shower and wedding invitations:


Valentine’s Day Fun

I surely am not the only one that gets the after-Christmas blues–family has left town, the weather is wet and dreary, all the shopping is done, presents are unwrapped, and, well, the excitement and anticipation has faded…I’m sure I could get knee-deep in psycho/spiritual analysis here, but that’s not entirely the point of this post.  We’ll save that for another time.  In order to pep myself up yesterday and today, I had some fun looking ahead to Valentine’s Day, and created some fun and modern photo Valentines and birth announcements, as well as a party invitation.

This is my son’s first year in preschool and I’m considering printing up some custom designed Valentines for his school exchange–might you consider it, too? 🙂
