2010 Christmas Card!!

We are known to have whimiscal Christmas cards that include our dogs every year. It is a definetly a challenge every year to create such creative Christmas cards with the dogs. It is very difficult to get a good picture of them all at the same time and no one to help us take the picture. It is all done between my husband and I....ha! and there is alot of frustration & laughter in the air when we do take the pictures, but it is so worth it. We try to have fun while doing it. We get such great compliments from friends and family on them. So it is worth the trouble!

This year we were trying to figure out a way to top last year's card. That one definetly creative! One of my favorites since we have been doing the cards. How could we top last years???? Well with the bump it is a little difficult to get the dogs all together with just Mike and I. So Mike had the great idea for us to take a picture of each individual dog laying on their back and then us laying on our back on the grass. Then I would use my photoshop magic and place each of us around in a circle.

Let me tell you photoshopping this project was not easy. Took me a while since I am not a pro at photoshop, but I think it turned out great! Minus Bentley's picture. I am a little disappointed that his lightining was off for him, but overall I think it turned out great! Of course we had to add a little something about our special delivery in Feb. :-)

Enjoy (bottom row: Bentley, Maverick & Lucy)!!!

2013 Christmas Card

We've been sending out Christmas cards as a couple for a while now. Each year we try to be creative with them (past Christmas cards: 2009, 2010). Each year it gets harder and harder. We either add another dog or a kid. It's hard to get the dogs wrangled up and to look at the camera. It's even harder with kids! This year I tried to take some pictures of some inspiration I saw on pinterest. Here are some photos I took.






The card that I got through Shutterfly.com. Love them!


This year we've been extremely blessed with our new home, the birth of our second son, and a new great job. More importantly we are blessed to have each other. Merry Christmas everyone!! God Bless!

2013 Mother's Day....DIY photo gift

2013 Mother's Day was extra special this year with what my guys did for me. While I wasn't home Mike got out our camera, tripod, remote for the camera and started to take some beautiful DIY shots. His inspiration was "Jett's Day." From getting ready, napping, & going out. It just captured so many great moments of our little guy.

I love the sentimental gifts that kids make their parents. It is worth millions to me. So when I received my mother's day gift from my guys I heart just fluttered with excitement.


Here are the pics from the mini DIY session .....







Mike wanted to put all these great photos in a frame. He had J paint the matte so it was more personable. 


The end result a DIY photo session with a toddler painted matte for Mother's Day. Something I will have and to cherish forever.




Jett's Vintage Train 3rd Birthday Party!

I was really excited about planning Jett's party because we would throw the party at our new home. So many possibilities!! I always try to brainstorm ideas months prior to the party so I can slowly come up with stuff and create them. I started to think of things that Jett was really into at this part of his life.

He loves planes, but we did that for his 1st birthday. He loves tractor, we did that for his 2nd party. Now at almost 3 he loved trains and Superman! So I asked Jett in November, "Jett do you want a choo-choo train party or Superman?" and Jett yells, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!" PERFECT!!


I was now thinking of things to do and how to decorate for this party. Of course everything has to start with the invitation. I created the invitation myself. I went with a old style boarding pass. 

This invitation is no longer available at my etsy shop
However, a new & improved one I made from my youngest son's birthday (below) is available to personalized here at my…
