Christmas Card Outtakes

While we were at the beach last week for Thanksgiving, I decided I wanted to try to capture a picture of Walker for this year's Christmas card. I still don't know exactly what I'm doing as far as photography, but I figured as long as I took a couple hundred pics, I may get something I liked. So that's pretty much what I did.

I love the current trend of balloons in photo sessions, so I stopped by the local Harris Teeter (on Thanksgiving no less) and got them to blow up some balloons for me.And I knew I wanted to Walker to be pretty casual as far as his dress because that fits his personality much more than a dressy outfit. Sometimes you can just tell children are miserable in their Christmas photos because of what they are wearing.

Here are a couple of the outtakes that I've placed in some of my favorite Christmas card designs from the 2010 Shutterfly collection. They have wonderful Christmas and holiday cards, as well as photo calendars that make great Christmas gifts! I'll show you the real thing when I finally decide which one to use! Choices, choices! And I better decide soon, I know! I've already started getting cards from friends in the mail!

Heck some of these pics look so good in the card layout, one of these may just be the one! What do you guys think?

If you haven't heard about the special offer from Shutterfly, they are giving bloggers 50 free holiday cards. You can click here to find out more about this promotion.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
