Last Post of the year!

I hope your New Year's is decidedly more festive than mine! My oldest son has been very sick with rotavirus since Sunday and I spent today at the doctors and caring for him. In a few hours, we will be ringing in 2009 here on the East Coast, but I very much hope to be sleeping soundly by then :) I am celebrating the New Year with a special half price shipping discount on my website! Take advantage of this special sale now thru Saturday using code 2009.

A very special thank you to all of my wonderful customers this past year. I have enjoyed working with each and every one of you, and my family and I greatly appreciate your support. I hope to work with you again in the coming year, and look forward to "meeting" new customers in '09!

Happy New Year!

Christmas Orders Update

Yes, we are still accepting Christmas orders! Samples for photo cards are currently running 24-28 hrs within receipt of your information. Labs are busy, and I would advise upgrading to rush processing to expedite your order. Turnaround time at the lab without rush processing is running about 3-4 business for 4x6 cards and an extra day for 5x7 and larger prints. Upgrading to rush can trim that down another day or two. Express shipping is always available as an upgrade as well. I am working hard to turnaround orders as fast as possible on my end. If you do not have your holiday photo card order ready to go, consider adapting your design into a New Year's greeting!

For notepad gifts, please remember that the pads are handcrafted and they do take several days to make after your sample is approved.

Holiday Schedule

Holiday orders have kicked in; please expect a longer wait on samples from now til Christmas. I do not set a deadline for orders, but I also cannot guarantee Christmas delivery for orders within a week of Christmas. You are always welcome to upgrade processing on photo cards and/or shipping options for any order.

Please note that I spend Wednesday mornings volunteering at my oldest son's school, so there may be a longer wait for responses to questions or orders on those days. I also have various holiday events throughout the month for my sons and for our family. I will be working as hard as I can to keep turnaround times as fast as possible.

Get ready for Fall!

Fall is on its way! We are getting some beautiful fall weather here on the East Coast, and I could not be happier, as its my favorite season. I can't wait to get out for some fall photo ops and hopefully capture some up to date pics of the boys! I have been working on fall/Halloween cards, and have started listing those on the site. More to come this week. Take a peek!

We will be celebrating Cooper's birthday this weekend, and I will be working on a very limited basis while we prepare for his party. Don't forget that the Cooper bday coupon expires on Monday!

Wow, its been a busy month here at my home! My oldest son started kindergarten, and we are adjusting to our new routine, and next week my middle son will return to preschool, so that will bring more morning madness 3 days a week! My middle son is also getting ready to turn 4, so I am in the midst of party planning. And, as usual, I was so busy working on other people's invitation orders that I ended up having to rush my own invitation order for his party! Sigh :)

September will also be busy for me as I am working to get my Xmas/Holiday collection ready for debut. I will be offering a great Early Bird Special on photo holiday cards, so look for that announcement within the next few weeks!

Back to School is creeping upon us...YIKES!

I cannot believe it, but its time to start gearing up for back to school already! I had a really hard time this week purchasing some of the supplies for my oldest son who will be headed off to kindergarten next month! He was a baby yesterday, I swear! I know my middle son and I are both going to be at a loss for awhile with what to do with ourselves without him here everyday. (My middle son ADORES his big brother and follows him everywhere)

I have some great tools to help you stay organized this school year. My personal favorites are personalized school envelopes---these are perfect for keeping notes to school, permission slips, money, book orders, etc. organized so that they make it to school in tact, and I also like the school excuse pads for home-school communication and all of those notes you have to send throughout the year. Both of these items are designed to make your busy school mornings run a little smoother. (I secretly dread getting back on school schedules, having to rush to get everyone ready to go) Check out the labels/stickers section for some handy personalized labels to stick on all of your child's supplies.

Another popular back to school purchase is teacher notepads or teacher notecards. Whether you are a teacher prepping your classroom (if you are like I was, this is actually done all summer long---who says teachers have summers off?!!) or parent just looking to purchase something little to give your child's teacher to kick off the school year, I have loads of designs to choose from, and of course all may be personalized.

Get your order in early so you are prepared to start the year off on the right foot!

Vacation notice!

Happy 4th of July! Hopefully you were lucky enough not to have a rainy & yucky day like we did here.

CutiePies Custom Creations will be taking a breather next week. My site will be on vacation July 7th-10th. I will still be checking emails, and I will be processing photo card orders as well, but please expect samples to take longer than the usual 1-2 days for orders placed during those few days. New orders may be placed during this time period, but please expect a slight delay in processing.

Happy Summer!

Summer doesnt officially start for another day, but its sure been a busy season for our family so far...and its definitely be HOT enough to qualify for summer! Due to summer activities and changes in schedules, my proofing schedule may vary at times. Generally, samples are ready for photo cards in about 24-48 hours after receiving your pics & info, though additional time may sometimes be needed. Stationery items run about 3-4 days for samples. For the next two weeks, my mornings are going to be filled with swmming lessons for my two older boys, so sample times may vary slightly. Also, please remember that it takes about 3-4 days for your photo or press printed items to be processed at the printer. Keep these guidelines in mind when placing your order.

Happy Summer!

Happy New Year!

A big thank you to all of my wonderful customers from 2007--I look forward to working with you again in the new year! I had some time to relax a little during the holidays, which was nice, but I also was working away on many new designs, and will continue to add additional designs that are new for 2008! I will also be getting a new "look" soon, which I am very excited about as well! Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, & prosperous new year!
