Spring themed baby shower

My workplace has had a baby boom lately (and everyone has stopped drinking the water!) A few weeks ago we welcomed three little ones to the world. But before doing so we had to have a little party! The ladies of the Interactive Services department put our heads together for this a spring themed baby shower. Initially we were going for pink and blue but a few of the baked >> Continue reading

Three of these patterns have already sold in between yesterday and >> Continue reading

New addition = more inspiration!

Last week we launched our spring catalog…which was the same time that my daughter made her entrance into the world (her timing is impeccable!). Up until this point, most of my creative inspiration has come from my son who is a rambunctious 21-month old and is now trying to adjust to life as an older brother. Having a daughter is so different. Pink is everywhere, her cry is girly and >> Continue reading

Summer fun

Summer had arrived and we really enjoyed spending time outside after being cooped up for months! This was the first time my daughter had the opportunity to play in the grass and she had a great time. I was thrilled to be able to capture her touching the grass. Unlike me, she didn’t seem to mind that it was prickly! This is one of my all time favorites of the >> Continue reading

Holiday traditions for my family

My family has quite a few holiday traditions and now with my own little one I hope to continue those and start a few new ones that we can continue through the years. Last year she was only 4 weeks old so while she celebrated Christmas she didn’t get to participate in any of it. While she’s not old enough to understand Christmas I believe she does know that it’s >> Continue reading

1st Birthday Party

A few weeks ago I posted about some party theme ideas I found. In the end I decided to go with a color theme of pink and green and to save the more specific themes until our little one was older. The color theme came about when I was making the invitations. I turned to scrapblog.com to create it because I knew it would give me the stickers I needed >> Continue reading

Can my baby read?

It’s been about 6 months since my daughter started watching the Your Baby Can Read videos. While I was skeptical of the program when my MIL first mentioned it, we gave her the go ahead to purchase it for our daughter anyway. Our thoughts were that if she learned to read- great! If she didn’t – well the videos would help her learn new words and actions. We started the >> Continue reading

The day I told hubby I was pregnant…

I’ll never forgot the day I told my husband that I was pregnant. We had suffered a miscarriage the month prior and decided to give ourselves some time to recover. Well, that recovery period was shortened when I discovered that I was pregnant again. I was extra cautious this time and decided to wait a month which was so hard! I had to bite my tongue so many times, but >> Continue reading

My childhood lovies

As a child I had a lot of lovies. There was a teddy bear that I’ve forgotten the name of but he’s present in quite a bit of my childhood photos. Then there was Christina the faux Cabbage Patch Doll my dad made me. There was also the real Cabbage patch doll I eventually got (and also named Christina). Finally there was Sally. The famous one of them all. She >> Continue reading
