all about holiday cards 2014


it’s been a minute.  summer went by in a flash, as did september, and here we are in october!!  crazy.  october means a few things… 1) pumpkin spice lattes, 2) holiday cards get cranking (already shipped out my 1st order!) and 3) THAT NEW BABY COMES.  OMG.  “new baby” (the most imaginative name you’ve ever heard, right? poor 3rd child) arrives at the end of the month, which is just wild.  i am both terrified and excited…!  i will be accepting holiday card orders until early december this year, but if it gets too crazy, i might cut them off early (eek!  get your order in in oct/nov if you can!).  well, that and if i’m hallucinating because of the sleep deprivation.

greetings!  hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of july!  i’m here today with an adorable party one of my clients threw for her baby boy last month.  she had the idea of the big, silver balloons spelling out his monogram at the party, and i thought…what about a balloon *with* his monogram for the invitation?  i thought the add of light blue gingham was perfect for summer and sweet for a little guy turning 1.

blue balloon wordingin the etsy shop here.  i also just added a red version, too!  can easily change the colors to pink or something girly too.

i also made foldover food signs, a beverage sign that was framed and a graphic used for custom napkins.  love how it all came together!  and don’t miss the floral arrangements – gorgeous!!IMG_3084
