my little one will turn FIVE

oh boy (or in this case, girl) - how time flies. i started doing these cards for her 1st birthday invitation and here we are 4 years later. while my style has changed some since my first designs, my passion for design has not. i love doing these cards, i love helping new parents announce their joy & I love creating invites that show how our little ones have grown. i could never do an invite with just one picture. i take almost a picture every day of her, so how could i pick ONE? picking just a couple for each year was like torture. i wanted to pick one a month, but i don't think that even i could get 72 pics to fit nicely on an invite, so i settled for a couple a year (plus a couple bonus ones). here she is, my little miss autumn and her 5th birthday invite created by mom, with love. i love you princess. happy [almost] 5.

they are here!!!!

a dozen new holiday designs for 2009 are now up in my store. i may create a few more, but for now, this makes a total of about 18 new designs for 09! i am excited about this new line as it is so "me." when i started this business i loved design, i loved layouts, colors and fonts. i have evolved and now my designs are not just about color and layout, but many of my new designs now feature custom hand-drawn elements that i drew myself (and some showcase my own family photos that were taken by the awesome miss amy boring). as always, early next month, i will start a special for those that early their cards early so stay tuned!!!

here are a few of my new line:

gearing up for holiday 2009

here are a few of the new designs i have created for this year. many more to come, but here is a sneak peak. if you have an idea or colors that you would love to see, i am always open to hear ideas :) most of the elements have been hand drawn by me, so you will NOT find these elsewhere. if you do, please let me know :)
