I had to stop in on my little Christmas break with the family to show off this darling butterfly invitation I made for a friend. When she told me that her daughter wanted to have pink & purple butterflies on it I knew exactly what I was going to do.

Just to prove that inspiration can come from anywhere ... this time my inspiration from one of my daughter's old sleeper.

Here is the pink & purple butterfly invitation with some added turquoise for fun:





If you want your own butterfly invitation, I have already added the digital version to pingg

Plan a New Year's Eve Party

Since having kids (5 yrs ago), the hubby and I don't go out nearly as much as we did pre-kids. New Year's Eve is no exception. One year, when our oldest was 1 1/2  we were invited to a neighborhood New Year's Eve Bash - Kids Edition. We celebrated and watch THE BALL drop at midnight - East Coast time. Which means we celebrated at 9 pm. It was quite fun, especially because we were with friends & neighbors - and we got to bed at a decent hour! For me that was nice because I was newly pregnant and so very tired all the time.

Last year we celebrated in style! We got all gussied up and celebrated the new year with a lot of dear friends in a hotel ballroom. We ate good food, enjoyed great company, and danced into the night!

Don't be left out this year. Plan a party, host with a friend, invite your friends & neighbors, go out on the town. Enjoy the New year!

Oh and check out my newest additions to pingg. Perfect to use for your New Year's Eve evite, right?



That reminds me ... I need to work on our plans for New Year's Eve before it's too late!

My budding artist

My little love has taken to drawing. He loves to use markers, pens, colored pencils, crayons, paints - anything that he can get his hands on.

He found my stash of 110 lb. heavy card stock that I use for invitations. For paper, this stuff is not cheap.

He drew Monster Teeth on them


Monster Teeth on ALL 54 pages - no monsters, just the teeth.


No to worry, I've got the guard dog on my paper stash. The dog knows what it looks like and will sound the alarm if one of my little loves gets into it.
