I’ve had an awesome & very busy Christmas season in my shop. Thank you to everyone who purchased Christmas cards, stationery, artwork and other goodies from me – I can’t tell you how much it means to me to have your support! Because you’ve been so wonderful, I want to give back. One winner will receive…
Christmas is in the air! Can you feel it? While I haven’t officially decorated the house yet (that will be happening this Saturday), I’m am already preparing myself for some holiday goodness to explode on my mantel. I’ve got it all mapped out in my head, so it should be a breeze (except it never…
Although I haven’t talked about it, I have been cloth diapering with Graham just as I did with both Mia and Lincoln. Back when I first started cloth diapering in 2010, I wrote a whole slew of articles on it. This was mostly because I found it difficult to get my footing in the beginning and I wanted to help others who were intimidated by cloth. You can find those articles here.
I have a feeling Easter will be here before we know it. I am hoping to be on top of it this year and start gathering Easter basket goodies now and prepping Easter cards, but good intentions aren’t always enough… In any event, I did get a new Easter card up in my Etsy shop that would be perfect to showcase your little bunnies:
Hopefully you were able to catch some of the “Capture the Little Moments” series here on the blog last month. I had a great time featuring some of my favorite photographers, sharing their knowledge with you and participating in a month-long photo challenge that produced some awesome, memorable photographs.
With Valentine’s Day almost here, the race is on for every mom to gather up Valentines to pass out in class for each child. My daughter is in preschool, therefore I can still decide what she gives out and don’t have to succumb to the over-priced, hideous Dora/Princess/*insert random character name here* Valentines sold in stores. Thank God.
Mom and Pop is graciously giving one reader their 101 Set, which includes lessons for both Portraits 101 and Camera 101 (a $99 value). It is a combined set that will teach you the basics of using your camera (ISO, mode, White balance, etc.) and well as some tips for how to get the perfect portrait (including an all-important lesson on proper lighting) – essential for any mom trying to snap some pro shots of her kids (aren’t we all??).
I must admit, I have had these big elaborate ideas for blog posts lately, but can’t seem to make them happen. Pregnancy has left me tired, nauseous, and headachey (that’s not a word…). So please accept this small attempt at posting as something real and worthwhile!
Lately my daughter has been REALLY into coloring. It took forever for her to finally show some interest in it, but we are finally there. Being a graphic designer and a super crafty and artistic kid myself, I am loving her new creative side (especially because it keeps her still and occupied for more than 5 minutes).
You’ve got two days to finish prepping for Father’s Day! If you need a card, a last-minute gift, or just want to add something personal to what you already bought dad, why not include a Father’s Day questionnaire filled out by the kids? There are so many great free printable Father’s Day questionnaires floating around…
