Teacher or Parent Candy Bar card

For J's daycare provider birthday I wanted to get her something personalized from Jett. I didn't have any ideas at the time nothing really screamed this is the gift on pinterest. However, on facebook one of my friends she had recieved this candy bar card from one of her students. Such an awesome idea. So creative and meaningful. So I was searching on pinterest for examples for wording for a card. There was not a ton so I had to combine a couple of cards I found to what fit for Jett's daycare provider.

I first wrote out my card on a piece of paper and made a list of the candy I needed. Searching for the candy was a tad challenging. I went to the my local pharmacy near where I work. I had to go to 2 different ones (CVS & Walgreens). I found most of the stuff I needed from Walgreens. I also picked up my poster board from there too.

Supplies
Poster board
Marker
Tape or Hot Glue Gun

Candy
Extra Gum
100 Grand
York Peppermint Patty
Whoppers
Butterfinger
Skor
Lifesavers
Almond Joy

Maria loved the card. You can definetly put more on there. This is just what I put for this particular card. This would be fun to do for a family member too. Below is the actual text of the card we wrote.

"Ms. Maria,
Happy Birthday! I wanted to get you something EXTRA special on your birthdaay! I was going to give you 100 GRAND or a trip to New YORK, but the $ for your big WHOPP ing gift slipped out of my BUTTERFINGER s. I just wanted to let you know I SKOR ed having you as my teacher. You are my LIFESAVER during lunch and snack time. Thank you for all your do for me. I wish you lots of JOY on your birthday. Love, Jett"

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…
