Ornaments! And cute ones :)

SO, I am in LOVE with these simple and easy ornaments. A sweet friend came over the other night and I think I made 2 in 10 minutes! Here they are!
These are SUPER easy!
Gather styrofoam balls, ribbon, straight pins, and buttons! Cover.  LOL!
That easy, super cheap and they look SO cute when you are done!
Watch out those who have an ornament exchange with me :) You might just get one :)

Golf Banner- Vance

I LOVE it when my customers share their photos using products they have gotten from us! It's just so cool to see something made in my studio in action :) Yes, I'm a nut like that :) Here is a banner for a sweet 10 day old baby boy named Vance. His mom is a professional golfer and her photographer used it as a prop for his photos. Check out her site!!! She is on Facebook too!!!
I seriously can't get over how adorable he is!!!

Holiday 2011- Cards and Giveaway!!

Happy Sunday everyone!
Well, with the holiday season upon us, it's crazy to think that Thanksgiving and Christmas is JUST a round the corner! My sister was up to visit this weekend and we were talking about our Christmas cards. (CANNOT believe I'm already doing this. Seems like I just did it! EEK!)
I always send  a few handmade cards to special friends and family, but mostly I order a neat card with a picture collage from Shutterfly. Those who don't get to be around or who are not on Facebook :) LOL may not get to see fun things Matthew has been up to over the past year! Last year I went with Shutterfly's FAB folded Holiday Cards  and they were such a hit! Everyone told me how great the colors in my pictures looked and how they loved all the pictures I included on it!
Some of my favorite Shutterfly cards this season are:

I LOVE the colors in the 3rd card for sure!
Photo Christmas Cards are just so special!!! I love it when the recipient says, "Oh, I ALWAYS save your Christmas card!"  Nice to know that the money I spend isn't just thrown in the trash!!!

SO, who wants to make their Christmas Cards keep-worthy :)???
Shutterfly is giving me a set of free cards this year AND they are letting me give away a few free sets of 25 cards to my readers!!!! ( YAY FOR YOU!!!)
It's rather simple to win, just visit one of the links above, picj your favorite card, and leave me a comment letting me know which it is!!!  I will be drawing a winner next week and I will send over your promo code so you can order!!!! I will also be giving a set away on my Facebook page, so watch for that as well!!! (
It's that easy!!! Not a fan of Holiday or Christmas Cards??
How about their Birth Announcements, Photo Books,  or Greeting Cards? You can find some great options there as well!!!
 Happy looking and GOOD LUCK!!!

Halloween Weekend! No tricks, just TREATS!

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a fab October!
Just wanted to share this super cute idea!
Matthew has a great teacher for preschool again this year and for each class party, I always try and get the teacher a little something. Afterall, she is putting up with MY child three mornings a week :)
So, today was his Halloween party! Here is what she got!

This was a normal kraft beverage container! I covered it on all sides with Halloween paper, inked the edges, made a cute title, added twine and tulle. Inside are some tasty treats from Heine Brothers, the BEST local coffee shop. There is a tumbler, coffee, tea leaves, green tea mints, stew cup, etc. Perfect for a sweet teacher!

Hope everyone has a safe Halloween weekend!
Matthew was spiderman today, but has 3 more costumes pulled from his dress up bin for the rest of the weekend :)

Monkey in a Tux & Hole in One :)

Happy Labor Day Everyone!
A day full of plans was changed as my little guy woke up with some stomach bug that had his little heart throwing up and mommy wishing she could make it all better! It's only the second time he's ever been sick like that, and he's a champ. A few extra hugs and a morning full of nothing but Rugrats on Netflix and momy holding him in bed fixed it all :)
A quick pic from the wedding monkey was in last weekend :) That's the Ohio River in the background. The wedding was on the roof top and it was a beautiful day for it!
 I was asked recently to make a golf banner :)
Here is how it turned out!!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Matthew turned 5!!! ARG!!!

Well, my little man is a whole Hand now :) He is 5 and I can hardly believe it! His birthday was a few weeks ago and I'm not going to lie, there is a lot of stress on this momma to have a fAB party since I happen to help others do that on a daily basis!
We had a great turn out at the park in the Kentucky heat and his closest friends and our wonderful family showed up to help him celebrate!
I had the picnic catered by Mark's Feed Store- they have FAB BBQ! We had Pork, Chicken, Buns, Green Beans, Potato Salad,  Cole Slaw, and Buttermilk pies!
The kiddos enjoyed chicken nuggest and a fruit arrangement from Edilbe Arrangements!
Here are some pics from the evvent!
This was the sweets table!
 Included above are red velvet cake pops, pirate face cookies, anchor cookies, fruit arrangement, cupcakes, chocolate pops, favor cups, brownies and nuts! Not to mention his cake!! The cupcakes were red velvet and yellow, so the cake was top carrot and bottom white!
 Here is his cake! (Cakes by Lisa E) There was a fondant pirates hook on top, but it broke the day we picked it up. Oh well. He needed a candle somewhere!!
 If you notice, there are edible cupcake toppers that are pirate faces :) The favors consisted of red adn white striped boes with an eye patch around them. Inside were pirate coloring books, crayong, hand clappers, pirate wristbands, red hots, lemon heads, pirate paddle ball, etc. and custom suckers in covers that said Matthew is 5!
 My yummy cake pops!! The tags say Matthew Is 5!
 Pirate Face cookies!
 Adorable anchor cookies!!
 Serving up cake to a hungry pirate :)
 The bouncy for all the kiddos!
 Opening presents! (And a little hot from playing!)
ANd these are my lovely girls from high school from made the hour and a hlaf trip up for the party. We have always had it at my parents every year in my hometown, and with this being the first year not down there, I felt so loved that they and there kiddos came up for the day! Between us we have 8 cute kids :)

Wish I had gotten pictures of the rest of the decor, but oh well! There were paper fans in red, black and white.  Red and white polka dot fabric table runners. Polka dot ballons, personalized centerpieces, etc! Shew- just not enough time to get it all!!

I hope you all have a fab week!
