Valentine’s Day Printables {Free Templates}

The holiday card you see above was sent out to family and friends last December 2011. It already feels like such a long time ago, but it was only last month!  I also designed these return address labels with a heart placed in the middle. I loved the color combination and thought they were great for the Christmas holiday, but I also thought they would even be better for Valentine’s Day! So here are some free designs you can use for your next party or for your children’s classmates and teachers. The free PDF downloads are...

Holiday Tags/Labels {Free Template}

While many others have already mailed out their holiday cards and finished with their Christmas shopping, I’m still having planning to have my holiday cards go out next week. With my busted knee injury, I have certainly slowed down my pace quite a bit. I did however, manage some time to put some Christmas holiday gift tags together. Go ahead and download the free PDF printable. For more options, you can also download another set of gift tags I designed last...

Prayer Helps {Free Downloads for Canvas Prints}

I wrote the following post on 12/6/11 (Tues.). Warning: The following may be graphic and lengthy for some readers! I’m sitting here after just putting my two kids to bed. This was a crazy evening. I dislocated my left knee and it was bad. It had happened many times before with both knees at different times since my junior high school days, but I think this was the worst one due to the pain. I was giving my kids a bath and as I turned away from them, my left foot slipped against the floor causing my knee cap to pop out to the side. I...

One-Year Anniversary – Celebrate with a Holiday Sale!

  Where did the time go? I looked at the calendar again and realized that my one-year anniversary had ALREADY passed! I officially opened my Etsy shop on 11/10/2010 and it’s already 11/22/2011! I’m  looking back and wondering how I got to this point so quickly. My daughter is already two and my son will be turning five in April. Before I know it, they’ll be teenagers begging me to leave them alone (shedding a tear…)! Throughout the year, I have been adding new designs and fulfilling orders mostly after the kids...

Elephant with Hot Air Balloon Birthday Party | Real Parties

My daughter, Maddie, celebrated her 2nd birthday earlier this month. We wanted to keep the number of guests small by just including family members. It was much easier to set up the party decorations and desserts in the comfort of my home. Organizing Maddie’s 1st birthday party last year was stressful. I had to pack all of the party items in boxes and bags and drive them to the restaurant that morning, which was about 30 minutes away. I was in a mad rush to get them delivered and to have all of the necessary decorations set up in a timely...

Vintage Baseball Party Designs and New Printable Collection | Real Parties

Kim, who was a referral from a previous client of mine, contacted me and wanted to throw a vintage baseball-themed birthday party for her son, Colby. It was a theme I had been wanting to do, so I gladly put together some designs for her. Her son is so adorable and I love the photo of her son that she used for the invitation ticket! I really enjoy seeing how people creatively end up using my designs throughout their party. Thanks Kim for sharing!
