Happy Birthday, Jack!

My son's birthday is today, and my color printer sure came in handy... he'll be having a very Sarah & Abraham birthday party!
Stickers on cellophane party favor bags (containing frosted dinosaur-shaped cookies)
Stickers on goody bags (filled with all kinds of dinosaur goodies)
Pin-the-fish-in-the-baryonyx's-mouth game (my son's idea - I was so happy I didn't have to draw the baryonyx!)This may be going a little overboard with the stickers, but I figured there's no harm in helping the kids keep their juice boxes straight!And of course I'll be sending out Sarah & Abraham thank you notes!

new postcards - boy holding a balloon

I'm so excited about these new postcards that arrived in the mail yesterday - I just love how they turned out! I think they'll be really cute to add to a birthday gift or for sending thank you notes after a birthday party. Now I need to make a girl version... which silhouette do you like better?

{beautiful} scripture based gifts

Have you seen these new personalized prints from Life Verse Design on Etsy? I absolutely love them!You may have noticed that I've discontinued my prayer & scripture prints (I was only selling about 1 of those for every 25 or more non-religious items). I can still print them upon request, but I'll also be referring people to Life Verse where you can purchase these prints framed or unframed.

a little break from paper goods...

How sweet is this hand embroidered dress by Tiny Sprouts? I can't remember how I first came across this site, but I took another look at it yesterday, wanting to order something personalized for my daughter and a gift for a friend. Everything's so cute I had the hardest time deciding what to buy!
Tracey offers the most beautiful fabrics, thread colors, and shapes like poppies and hearts. My 3-year-old daughter, who loves to tell everyone she meets, "My name is Emma. E-M-M-A", is going to be beyond thrilled with her new outfit!

I've also been meaning for a while now to write about Elizabeth of Bellasophia on Etsy. She sews beautiful couture dresses and matching accessories for little girls as well as these gorgeous bunnies, baby blankets, and burp cloths.

A few weeks ago I ordered three of these bunnies (one for Emma and two for gifts) and a hand embroidered shirt with a little bird, and I was absolutely amazed by the quality and attention to detail!
