Thirteen Things About 2013 1

Well, it’s the end of another year and I feel the need to write an obligatory New Year’s post. First, though, I realized that I never shared our holiday card like I have in the past (you can see previous ones here: 2009, 2011, 2012). This year’s card wasn’t very Christmasy because, frankly, I got […]

Happy (Belated) 2013 2

So, yeah, we’re almost 2 months into 2013 and I’m just now getting around to posting our New Years card. Don’t judge. We didn’t send out Christmas cards this year since we were in the middle of moving from Oklahoma to Colorado. (Honestly, we were total grinches in December… holiday card, no Christmas tree, zero […]

Catchin’ Cooties 4

Anyone remember making Cootie Catchers back in your grade school days? You know, the silly game where a folded sheet of notebook paper would predict who you’d marry, where you’d live, and how many kids you’d have? For some reason, I was reminded of them this week and thought it’d be fun to make a […]

Sharing the Love: 50 Ideas for Making Your Own Valentines 29

There’s something super sweet about handmade valentines. Some of my favorite memories from childhood involve sitting at the kitchen table (covered head to toe with glue and glitter!) making cards for my friends. Ok, let’s be honest…..this scenario still happens at my house today, even as an adult. Every year on Valentine’s Day, my sweetie […]

Christmas Card 2011 1

Happy Holidays….. …..From Our Herd to Yours! As you can see, I had a little too much fun designing our Christmas postcard this year. I thought it would be festive to Photoshop reindeer antlers on the dogs and give Oliver a bright red Rudolph nose. Apparently Ollie was not a fan, though! The cards were […]

Label Love 14

I know I’m not the only one who enjoys getting real mail. What’s more fun than opening the mailbox to find a handwritten card or letter poking out from under a pile of boring bills? This week I was designing custom address labels for a client’s wedding invitations and was having so much fun that […]

Heartstrings 4

It’s February and love is in the air! In my house that means it’s time to break out the construction paper and doilies. We have a rule that store-bought cards and fancy gifts are not allowed on Valentine’s Day. Instead, our tradition includes exchanging homemade valentines and baking heart-shaped pizzas together. It’s the stuff romance […]

See A Pattern? 0

Bold geometric patterns seem to be popping up everywhere from textiles and fashion to decor and product packaging. I think they bring such a timeless quality to design and somehow look vintage and preppy at the same time. You can easily and inexpensively bring this trend into your own home with some framed prints or […]

Krafty Handmade Envelopes 0

I’m head over heels for Paper Source’s envelope templates! I’ve been coveting these babies for a while now and finally have a set to call my very own (thanks, Mom!). It’s the little things in life that make me happy. My envelope-making fore entailed recycling paper grocery bags and holiday cards into personal stationary. I […]
