A huge milestone is being hit tomorrow. It the day that 5 years ago I became a mother.  That’s right… Our Banjo is turning 5!  And since I was almost 30 when he was born that means in August I will be…  Oh no.  Let’s not even think about that right now.  Moving on.  😉  Banjo is growing up.  *sigh*

How exactly did my baby boy go from this:

To this:

All so very fast???  We love our little guy so much and cannot believe that the time has flown by the way it has.  It makes me su.  Today we are having a really great party in our very own backyard.  It is carnival themed and I cannot wait to see the excitement on his face when the party begins.  Prior to planning anything theme related I contact 505 Design + Paperie to see if they were interested in creating Banjo’s party invitations.  The took this invitation and used their creative editing to have it read “carnival” instead of “circus”:

When it comes to party planning I always need a little help.  Okay.  I need a lot of help!  It’s hard to plan a party and get everything perfect.  The menu of food/treats, the games, the decorations, the invitations, the special little details…  Yep that list could go on and on!  So when we were planning Ruby’s first birthday party I knew that I needed help.

224849_10151225939825894_1686545150_n

She’s our little princess and I wanted to make sure her day was extra special!

I contacted Aimee Creation and said, “Help me!” and they did.  We wanted to do an owl themed party and I fell in love with the look of this invitation:

 Aimee Creation made it custom for us, so it was for a birthday party instead of baby shower.

They will make it custom for you, too!  🙂

In fact everything at Aimee Creation is customizable.  Through their party package we were able to get everything we needed to clinch the party into perfection.

Her entire party was extra special!

Remember those super cute baby announcements I shared with you clear back when Ruby was just a wee one?  We selected to have her birth announced on this card design:

We opted to use  this image of our darling on it:

By far they are the bestest baby announcements I have ever sent out!  (Thanks again Paper Culture, by the way.)  But…  Did you know that Paper Culture doesn’t just do announcements for baby?  It’s true.  Oh so very true.  Think holiday cards.  Gorgeous holiday cards.

Holiday cards like these:

 

This year Paper Culture gave us these holiday cards to send out to our friends and family:

The colors of the photo come out amazing.  The quality of the paper is amazing.  The back of the card is even amazing looking!  Paper Culture thinks of everything.  Thanks again Paper Culture for adding the special touches that make our cards wonderful!

Having a new addition to the family is a very special blessing.  It’s something that we wanted to shout from the rooftops!  Even “Banjo” was too excited to have his little “Ruby” come home from the hospital.  To this day he refers to her as his baby.  Not his baby sister, but simply his baby.  It’s really cute to here him say, “Where’s my baby?”  When we were sent birth announcements compliments of Storkie our “Banjo” was thrilled to see the finished product.  He said, “Awww.  That’s my baby!”

We chose this announcement:

And it was quite the hit with the people in our lives who received it!

Storkie has sooooo many cute baby announcements to choose from, so it wasn’t difficult to find something that worked with our style.  There’s even announcements that are perfect for either gender:

Making the decision making process that much easier!

Not in the market for baby announcements?  Not a problem, because Storkie Express  has unique Baby Shower Invitations:

Wedding Invitations:

Graduation Invitations:

Even Holiday Cards!

So keep Storkie in mind for your holiday cards come this fall!

Storkie Express has it all!  And…  The winner of this giveaway is going to receive a $25 gift certificate to spend at Storkie!

It’s always an exciting time when a new baby joins the household and our dandy household is no exception to that rule!  Banjo literally tells everyone that he has a new baby sister.  Only he leaves out the sister part.  It’s “I have a new baby” or “That’s my baby”.  It’s really cute!  Banjo hasn’t really seen a soul (outside of our household) over the last week, because he has been sick.  He hasn’t even been allowed to be around Ruby, because he is sick with RSV!  Scary times at our house.  We kept Ruby isolated from him as soon as we found out he had it.  Unfortunately over the weekend she began to have breathing problems that took us to the ER.  She tested positive for RSV, but is slowly on the mend.  Now that she has it we will still not being seeing people for awhile as she will be sick for another 7 days.  🙁  It’s a good thing that CrinkledNose.com let us create her baby announcements so people will be able to see her!  The announcements, cards, invitations, calendars, and note pads at CrinkledNose.com are totally different from what you will find elsewhere.  What makes them so special?  All all available for a magnet upgrade!  Picture this.  A baby announcement with a magnetic back built right in.  Announcements and such always end up on the refrigerator for all to see and CrinkleNose.com makes that easily done!

Here’s just one of their adorable baby announcements:

And like I said there’s also….

Cards:

Invitations:

Calendars:

Notepads:

Our reception was held here:

 My dress, shoes, and flowers were absolute perfection!  And the invitations/announcements…  Okay so they were kind of boring.  Nothing like the look of this beautiful wedding invite:

Well well.  It’s November and it’s time to act like it!  Here at our house, we are getting all kinds of ready for Christmas — including preparations for Christmas cards.  We send them out every year — and some years are less stress {not really, I always add unnecessary stress for myself – it’s just how I roll} than others.  So this year, I’ve decided to simplify and I’m getting to-do’s crossed off my list early, starting with our family Christmas card.

And I’m shopping with LNZart.  Lindsay’s shop is full of gorgeous and unique artwork  including digital designs and oil/acrylic paintings.  And…. holiday cards.  At a really great price — just $13.00!  Here’s how it works:  when you order a custom photo card from LNZart, simply email your picture to Lindsay with your specs and within 24 hours she will email you a JPG proof for your approval.  Upon your approval, Lindsay will send you the high-resolution JPG for you to print at the printer of your choice {hello Costco!} — print as many as you like, for the one-time $13.00!   {If what I just wrote confused you, don’t worry — just enter the giveaway and if you win, Lindsay can help you get your card just right}. 

How creative is Miss Lindsay?

I LOVE this one.   So what’s your style?  Whimsical?  Got it: 

Or do you prefer something more traditional?  Got that too:

Or what if you can’t decide which picture to use?  Need a bunch of spots?  Got it.

Black and whites?  You bet:

LNZart also has note cards, birthday invites, wedding and save the date cards, baby shower invites, personalized prints and more!  You can see it all in her shop here — and if you don’t see what you’re looking for, contact Lindsay for a custom order.
