this could be your Christmas card

I'm in the midst of trying to create a few new Christmas cards...

Here is one that I just completed, but it's not actually our Christmas card, I just used our family picture and names. I'm keeping our family Christmas card a surprise until I get them sent out in the mail.

**Important information: If you are interested in ordering Christmas cards, I need to have your information, picture, and design choice by no later than Tuesday, December 2nd in order for me to get them to you before I leave on Saturday, December 6th. I will be gone for one week and will not be returning until December 13th. Unfortunately I will not be taking any more custom designs due to the small amount of time from now until I will be leaving, so if you are interested please see my pre-designed gallery of Christmas cards (the pre-designs also includes the one I have just posted).

thank you from the little man

My good friend, Kim, "hired" me to design and create some thank you for the baby gift cards for another friend who just had a baby. This was her second baby, so she wanted a unique and special gift to give to her. I designed a photo card and then backed it with a red cardstock and then attached them to a folded card and bundled up a set of 12.

I also had the pleasure of designing this little man's baby announcement, which I look forward to sharing soon!

holiday cards (with more to come!)

Whew! What a busy weekend! So much to prepare for! One of the things being our local MOPS group just held our 1st Annual Craft Fair & Bazaar this morning. We had 12 tables set up for 40 women to browse through and do a little early Christmas shopping. I was the coordinator of the event and I think our first one ran smoothly. Hooray! I hope to open it up to other Christmas shoppers outside of MOPS next year. I set up a table to advertise my HB Creative Design photo card business, and so I look forward to seeing what comes of that. I think I have a few women who were interested in holiday cards.

And now I'm moving on to the next project (or should I say projects?)!

I wanted to give you a sampling of the holiday cards I have created for my friend Annie, an amazing photographer. The pictures displayed on each of these cards were taken by her.

I know this is a busy time of year, but I hope to design a few more in the coming week to have as other options for potential customers looking for photo cards. Over the weekend, we finally determined my photo card pricing that will be for the coming holiday season (see left sidebar). I'm slowly growing my business, so I'm sure as the work load grows, I will probably have to adjust my pricing to compensate for that.

keeping busy...and loving it!

This last week I was a little busy creating a couple of photo cards. Here are some fun, new designs for special occasions.

Here is my in-laws' 35th wedding anniversary party invitation...
**This is a 4x6 card with silver matting (thanks to the suggestion of my sister-in-law, Kristen). The colors turned out amazing and look great together!

And a baby shower invite for a friend's sister...
**This is a 4x6 card with white backing. I love the brown and blue together.

Also, If you haven't checked out some of my holiday photo cards that I have created for my friend Annie's photography business, then go here.

I have a baby announcement that I can't wait to share, but it's not quite finished yet. It's super cute!

The greatest thing about all of this creating and keeping busy is that I don't find any of it a burden. I love it too much for it to ever be a chore!

happy birthday papa!

My dad's 60th birthday is today!! He's definitely not one to shout it out that it's his birthday, but I'm sure he will appreciate the photo card I made him from the grandkids that he will receive in the mail...hopefully today. He loves his grandbabies that's for sure!! Can't wait for him and my mom to come "home" for the holidays!

Happy Birthday Daddy (or Papa as Mikayla would call him)
