First Birthday Collage Custom Design

It seems as if we have had such a busy start to our summer! My older two boys are in swimming lessons for the next few weeks, so if you contact me in the morning hours, I may not get back to you right away. Stay tuned for information on upcoming giveaways and special promotions!

Today's featured card is a custom design. The customer wanted a collage card for her daughter's first birthday to showcase how she had grown, but she had a specific color scheme in mind, and wanted to incorporate their party theme of monkeys & banana splits. Super cute!

I love doing custom work, so please remember if you do not see exactly what you are looking for in the card gallery, that I can create something just for you! Feel free to email me ahead of time to discuss your ideas.

Bright New Birthday Design

I finally got to add some of my new birthday invitations that have been in the works, and I think are just perfect for summer. Still more to come! Some of my ideas are still on paper & I need to carve away some more time to make them come to life on the screen.

This design is shown for water/pool parties, but can be easily used for any type of party you are having this summer & beyond. I have the same basic design listed in two different color combos, so you can also see how I can change up a card you see in my gallery that you might want in a different set of colors. Most designs can be modified this way, though I do have a few that I have used elements that cannot be altered.

Here is the birthday invitation based on a blue/tangerine color combo:

And here is the same basic design using an orange & green combo:

Colorful Gender-Neutral Birthday Design

I love the bright colors of this new design, which would work great for a boy or girl birthday. And, remember, if you find a design you love, we can customize it for any occasion. This reminds me of popsicles and summertime.

Please excuse the non-stationery related post :) I just had to share this because I find it so incredible. Last night, we had planned to grill hot dogs & hamburgers for dinner. We have only used the grill once so far this season, back when it was just starting to get warmed up. My husband decided he wanted to use a restaurant gift card instead. Later that evening, he opened up the grill to a big surprise! I was sitting at my laptop right beside the patio doors & saw it happen. THIS is what we saw:

Imagine our surprise! Needless to say, its a good thing our dinner plans had changed and he hadnt fired up the grill!

And, to add to the complications, THIS is what was inside the nest:

There are two of them that we can see. My mother in law came over this morning and we showed her the nest---now, last night after discovering the nest I had promptly called my mom and my mother in law to tell them all about it. My mother in law was in shock, despite the fact that I had repeatedly described the nest as taking up the ENTIRE INSIDE of the grill, she could not believe how big it was. (She said she thought I was exaggerating!) She thought the baby birds were adorable too. My husband & I agreed that these are faces only a mother could love!

As I am sitting here typing, the mother bird keeps flying in & out of the grill thru the tiny opening on the side. This is the only way she could get in & out, so apparently she built up that huge nest bit by bit by flying in through that opening. Funny thing was, both my mother in law and I had observed this mother bird sitting on the deck rail beside the grill repeatedly. We thought she had to be building a nest nearby but we saw no evidence of one! Little did we know, we should have popped open the grill!

Baby Shower Invitation

I have really been trying to keep the blog updated more often, but these last few weeks of end of the year activities for the boys' schools have been so hectic, I feel like my head has been spinning in circles! Between school events, baseball, and working to the house re-organized in preparation for all 3 of them being home full time again, I have not had much time for anything, let alone posting on the blog.

I also have not spent time all month working on new designs, so I am anxious to get some new things up on the website! In the meantime, I am posting a recent baby shower invitation addition that I happen to love. Also available in blue/brown for boys!

Summer always seems to bring lots of babies, so keep in mind if you have a baby event on the horizon, whether it be a shower, birth announcement, baptism invitation, etc.
