Last week I was brainstorming a card to make for my son’s birthday when I made a timely discovery on Pinterest. Thanks to a pin from Cool Mom Picks I discovered The Little Umbrella – a website that offers free … Continue reading
Last fall I was asked by a friend to make a baby book for her son and I jumped at the chance to design another photo book. Her son is now five and this wasn’t going to be just a … Continue reading
When I started scrapbooking in 2006 the goal for my projects was to have all my favorite photos in a nice album. But scrapbooking is more than just photos, it is also about the journaling. My first few projects have very … Continue reading
Casey celebrated his fourth birthday on May 26 with a backyard party and a few friends. A month ago he said he wanted a cars theme for his party and then just two weeks ago he changed his mind to … Continue reading
It seems like most of the kids we know have spring birthdays, including Casey and Robyn. I have already started planning both of their parties and just finished designing the invites. I worked on Casey’s first and liked it so much that I made Robyn’s in the same style but, of course, more girly.
I think he has settled on a “car” theme for his party and I have scouted out some ideas from Pinterest but, knowing how often almost four year olds change their mind, I will not actually buy or make anything until the week before! (In that case, I had better take some vacation days from work just before his birthday!!)
One week after Casey’s birthday is Robyn’s turn. I like it that their birthdays are close as I have a crazy few weeks and then it is done. Thankfully, Robyn is only turning two so she won’t care what her birthday party is like. I am hoping for a really great day and have the party at the local playground. That way the birds and the squirrels can clean up all the crumbs! Her invitation was a bit trickier because of all her hair in the photo. This was the best I could do!
I will post some pictures next month so you can see how the parties turned out. Now that the invites are made and sent out, I can relax for a few weeks and get back to working on those photobooks!
(I know it has been a while since the last post, but I was sick for about four weeks and just never made it to the computer to do anything. I usually like to do a post every week and I was even asked by someone if they had been removed from the mailing list! I feel sooooo much better now and the creativity is coming back to me so you can look forward to more regular posts.)
