Another Party Girl Arrives!

She was a little late to the party called “the planet” but she’s here and she’s fabulous and we’re in Heaven! We welcomed our daughter Noë (rhymes with Joey) on August 2nd which just so happened to be Crafty Jan’s 60th birthday! I think that there’s just a little bit of party DNA running through this girl’s blood with a birth date like that!
We are positively having a blast with her and though everything is going great, I’m going to take a little more time off from the shop and blog to love up this family of mine before the boys go off to preschool. Please forgive me if I haven’t gotten back to your comments, emails, or Etsy conversations. It’s slow going but I will get to them in the next few weeks (that is, if you have a little time to wait on my responses.)
In the meantime, check out my übertalented friend’s Steph Anderson’s photography site she finally launched! Click here to check it out. I’ve been begging her to do this for a million years, I swear! She’s amazing! Noë’s newborn photoshoot is on the site and if you’re in Southern California, I would book her immediately. She’s going to be a busy, busy photographing bee I think! Get on her schedule for your Christmas cards, for maternity photos, family snaps, or a newborn shoot like we did. She will blow you away!
Anyway, expect to see a little more pink on this blog in the future! Girls are sooooooo fun!


Baby Announcement :: World Theme

My little nephew debuted his sweet self in early June and here are the announcements I whipped up for the wee one!You may remember the worldly shower we threw my sister in May. When asking Ellie what she wanted on the announcement, she mentioned Louis Armstrong’s song lyric “and I think to myself, what a wonderful world.” I adored that concept and especially love the fact that everything surrounding this little guy is world-related. He may grow up to be a world traveler!The back of the announcement had all of his stats – along with a beautiful photo taken by a budding photographer friend of ours, Stephanie Anderson. (As soon as she launches her business officially, I will give you all the details! She’s insane!)Sweet, simple, and really fun to work on. Welcome to the world sweet boy!
