With this wintry weather in full effect, I am eagerly anticipating warmer days and upcoming spring celebrations. (Not that wearing a dozen winter items each isn’t a blast, but I’m absolutely longing for the day where the girls and I can slip on flip flops and be out the door in 30 seconds as opposed to the 30 minutes that it’s taking right now!)
I feel excited not only to be expecting a little one in the spring, but also having a chance to celebrate other milestones in our family (Rosie’s 3rd birthday and Cece’s 6th birthday are coming up in March and April!) As I’ve always been a stationery enthusiast, I actually can’t wait to start designing birthday party invites, thank-you notes, birth announcements, and more!
(I credit this enthusiasm to my mom as she’s always emphasized manners, the importance of sending thank-yous, and good style!)
I’ve already begun perusing all the stylish and whimsical cards on Paperless Post for the above mentioned upcoming life events. I even pulled up some of the newborn photos I took of Rosie and played with some of the templates for birth announcements and even baby shower invitations for girls. These are a few of my favorite cards:
What can I say… I apparently like books and buns in the oven.
This “pregnancy eat list” shower invite totally cracked me up. (But seriously, sushi will be the first thing I eat once this baby is out of me!)
(I’m partial to the Rifle Paper Co. designs as I’ve been swooning over Anna Bond’s work for half a decade now! Come design my entire life, ok?)
I’ll be thrilled to be able to create a birth announcement/sip and see card that’s similar if we have another girl, but I also love the idea of designing and decorating for a little fellow. (And if you’re like me and trying to navigate the latest baby trends, here is the difference between a baby shower and a “sip and see.” )
Really, it’s a win-win no matter who greets us on delivery day. And speak of winning…
Today I’m giving away 1,000 coins to Paperless Post! (This is a $90 value and can be used for purchasing online cards, including electronic invites, thank-yous, notes, and more! I love e-cards… instant delivery and no stamps or trips to the post office required.) All you need to do is comment below with what your favorite baby shower game is! I personally like the one where people make funny drawings/sayings on diapers and the mom gets to pick her favorite as the winner.
(another card, fun right??)
