{baby shower} you are my sunshine

alice contacted me through etsy and asked about making her a custom baby shower invitation for her baby sister who's expecting her first baby and lives in germany. so needless to say, she wanted to make this shower extra special for niki. alice was thinking yellow because they didn't know the baby's gender and said she wanted to use the song you are my sunshine because she remembers niki singing it to their mom when she was young. so after lots of great ideas from alice i came up with this design. she loved it.

{baby shower} betty

betty's mother-in-law contacted me about invitations for a surprise baby shower. she didn't know what she wanted but she knew she wanted something stylish and gender neutral. i came up with lots of samples and this is the one she chose. it's so cute and it was great working with her.

{birthday invite} katygirl's 30th

what a sweet blessing to be surrounded by great friends.

this year most of my friends, including me, are turning 30. i don't know what to think about my birthday yet. i know this sounds silly but 30 doesn't sound as old as it used to. but i'm still wondering when i'll feel like a real adult, because so far i don't. it seems weird for me to think that i have two kids, and that my oldest is going to kindergarten in the fall, i'm surely not old enough for that!

anywho, scottyboy asked davi, lori and i to throw a party for our dear friend and we all joyfully accepted the task.

We divided the duties and i got the best job, making the invites and party favors.
