Custom Photo Valentines... Cutie Pies Custom Creations Stationery & Photo Cards

Happy Friday!! Still adding a few more new Valentine designs. I need to get on the ball myself...have not taken photos of the boys yet or started on their cards. Here is a fun design--this color combo is great for boys or girls (and colors can be customized). It can be hard to create designs for Vday that aren't too girly! I think I might use this one for some of my sons' valentines this year. This design would look great on cardstock paper. I am thinking of adapting it to a mini card for my kids, because my middle son will have 50 valentines to give out at preschool. Any of the current Valentine designs can be adapted from a regular card to the mini cards, and vice versa.

Pinkalicious Birthday Invitation Design

Have to share this super cute custom birthday invitation I just completed. My middle son Cooper LOVES the book Pinkalicious (Victoria & Elizabeth Kann)and so I was very excited about working on an invitation designed around this book for the theme! (The book is SUPER CUTE, as is the newer Purplicious by the same authors). Such a fun party idea.

Sick! Ughhh...

Whew what a difference a day makes. Yesterday was a good day---the older boys were off school so we spent the day wrapped up in the history making inauguration activities. My youngest son, as I have mentioned in previous posts has been sick since last weekend...started with a severe congestion/stuffiness/cold type thing, then Monday he got sick with stomach bug oldest son was sick 2 weeks ago with the nasty stomach virus, and I thought SOMEHOW the rest of us managed to escape it. Oh so wrong!!! Why would I think I could possibly be that "lucky?" Yesterday evening my little guy developed a new symptom (liquid, rancid poo that is characteristic of this virus, and then within hours of each other, my remaining son, my husband, and myself all got hit with the stomach bug too! Today was awful with 4 out of 5 in the family sick and my youngest only wanted mommy. Thank goodness we are fortunate enough to have family nearby and the boys grandmothers each took a shift today.

Soooo, needless to say, I did not get to work on orders today, and in fact only just now fired up the laptop so I could check emails from the comfort of my bed. I hope tomorrow brings relief and HEALTH and that I will be back to work, playing catch up!

Now that I have caught up on emails, I am hoping to settle into bed and have a peaceful night of rest.

New Photo Valentine Designs...Cutie Pies Custom Creations photo cards & Stationery

It has been such a busy week here! My poor little 2 yr old has been sick all weekend with a nasty cold and fever and he has been a cling-on. Poor guy is terribly congested! It seems like someone in our house has been sick at all times over the last few months.

There are more new Valentine designs now listed on the website. Its no secret that I love pink & brown and what great colors for Valentine's Day! (Ok, I like to use pink & brown for any occasion, LOL...I even recently redid my downstairs bathroom in pink and brown! I think it has something to do with living in a house full of males :)

Here are a few of my favorite recent additions for Vday...
