I didn't intend to take such a long break from this blog, but life just gets in the way! I was busy creating a new printable invitation suite that is available in the shop.
My mom has the cutest little Scottie Dog named Riley. He loves to play with a big red ball out in the backyard of their home. This design was originally a birthday card for my mom, but I didn't get it printed out in time to give to her. Rather than having this little guy live forever on my hard drive as a design not used, I created this invitation suite.

I love monograms. My husband's and my monogram was the "theme" of my wedding decorations - invitations, napkins, cake, etc. I love the way letters work together to create something really beautiful - and they are so personal.

I have used the cherry blossom design to create a set of printable personalized stationary. It is posted in the shop just waiting for you!

Should you be doing something?

Little C and I went shopping at the farmer's market and saw lots of beautiful watermelons. Since "ball" is Little C's new favorite word, she shouted "BALL" at the top of her lungs when she saw them. So, I've had watermelons on the brain today.
Combined with that, and the fact that I have a list of things I should be doing around the house, I came up with this little download for you. Hope it can motivate you to stop surfing the web for a minute and do something that needs to get done. I am off to put a load of laundry in the washer!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Logo for Melissa Knits

A friend of mine has opened an etsy shop for her creations -if you are a photographer, you should go grab a hat or two - they are perfect additions to your newborn or toddler photo shoots.

She is attending a craft show this weekend and asked if I could come up with logo for her creations. I love to do custom work, so I jumped at the offer. She had some pastel cardstock already, so I created the logo using black and white.

Here is a picture of my little one in one of her hats:

Trading Digits

Ever find yourself digging through your purse or diaper bag trying to find a pen and scrap of paper to write your contact information on? This has happened to me a couple of times when meeting other moms at the park or in the store. I have created a new offering for the shop that takes care of this problem! - best part is, it is only $5.00!

This editable, printable PDF is a great way to exchange your digits with other moms!

Little Whales

I have posted a new notecard and gift tag set to the shop. If you liked the little whale tags that I posted before leaving for the beach, then you'll love this set! The set includes flat & folded notecards, gift tags, and an envelope.
This set would also make a great beach or pool themed invitation!

Mommy Calling Cards

Just in time for Mother's Day, here is a little inexpensive gift you can make for that special Mom in your life. This free PDF is editable, so you just download this file , open in Acrobat, and fill in whatever name, number, and email address you wish. Then print on cardstock and cut. Each calling card is the size of a business card.

Look for this design, but in multiple colors to appear in the shop later today!

If you don't have Adobe Acrobat, you can visit to downlaod it. When I open this PDF in Adobe 8, there is a button in the top right corner that says "Highlight Fields". When I click this button it shows me exactly where to fill in the name, number, and email.

Shop is Open

It has been a rough week around here. My daughter, C, and I were both sick with colds. It was still my goal to get my etsy shop running by today -and I just squeaked in. I just listed my very first item in the shop!

I created this printable set because I needed a couple of "Thank You" gifts to give to friends. I created these with the A2 Stardream Sapphire Envelopes in mind from Paper Source. These envelopes were on sale (still are!) and I picked up a couple of packs. Once I got them, I got to work on creating a design to match.

I plan to post more items to my shop over the next week - so please check back!
