here’s another holiday sneak peek – what do you think about an offset collection for quick ordering and customization? We certainly will continue on with the letterpress, but many have requested an offset option for holiday greetings because they need a quick turnaround.

This design is for those wishing to announce a new arrival for the holidays – more, many more genres to come. Gosh I miss my babies (although they have turned out to be pretty cute kids too)!

Today is World Diabetes Day. It is a day of mixed emotions. We are rounding out our 3rd year of Type 1 Diabetes in our home on December 1, 2011 but as I think back about what November means to us it is a time to be Thankful as well as a time to reflect upon awareness. In 2008 when David was 4 and in Preschool, he was always getting sick. A great potty trainer, it all snuck up on us when he started wetting the bed again. November 2008 was a time of morning sickness (I was pregnant with Charlie) and a LONG case of the flu. We had planned to head to Palm Springs for Thanksgiving but David kept throwing up and throwing up. I remember resigned to the fact that we just couldn’t travel that year to be with …

We LOVE the movie Rio so this year was a great one to brain-wash Evelyn into NOT being a princess and going for something totally fun and different! I’ve been twittering progress pictures of her costume but thought I’d post them here too because it is really starting to come together!! We bought a sparkly long sleeve gymnastics leotard and some turquoise opaque tights (which hadn’t arrived when the photo was taken). From there I searched and pinned up a variety of angel and bird wings. The big issue was weight. In the end I created the bone structure out of tinfoil, and then paper-machéd (I don’t think that is correct grammer) the heck out of the wings. It took about 16 oz. of elmers and a good 75 strips of computer paper (2×11″). That took a day to dry between maché …

So the other day I bought Evelyn a little PollyPocket size Strawberry Shortcake doll and didn’t realize until this evening that I have unleashed the girlyness that I thought didn’t exist in the tomboy 2 year old. This Strawberry Shortcake came with an 11 minute DVD that I have now memorized and am often referring to when in conversation with said 2 year old. All I hear about is Strawberry, Plum Pudding, Blueberry Muffin and Orange Blossom (among others).  As I typed this post I found myself humming the obnoxious theme song Strawberry, Strawberry, Straw-berrrr-yyyyyyyyy Short.Cake! in an even more obnoxious teeny-bopper falsetto voice. Bleh. And then I realized that Wednesday is devoted to Orange on Autumn Week with PoppyTalk and thought that I haven’t shown you this orangalicious letterpress announcement that shipped this month. Here’s to girly girls with a hint …
