A Few More Pictures of Everly Penniman

The last week or so I have spent very little time on my computer so I am quite behind on getting my photos all loaded onto my computer and sized for the blog. I have a few things to show you from Jamie and Josh's house, a couple of things from our house, two new chalkboards, a new pillow, some new greeting cards and tags and some "during" shots from "Jason's house". I'm hoping tonight to start getting caught up on my computer but we shall see. =) In the meantime I thought I would share the last few photos I took of baby Everly from way back in the early March when she was just a week old. As I mentioned in the other post with her photos we never got to take the photos we had planned on that first week because Lillie, Lola and I were all so sick, but I am happy that we were able to at least get some, even if they weren't what we had planned. Especially seeing how this trip up to NH I haven't taken any!

Birthday Cards and Birthday Hang Tags

We are excited to finally have our first set of 5 by 7 folded cards available! (And we have quite a few more designs that will be ready soon.) Each set comes with 8 cards and 8 white envelopes:

We also have our birthday gift tag sets available! They come in sets of 15 and make a great accent to write a little note on the back of and slip under the ribbon on a birthday gift or punch a little hole in and tie onto something! Please note though:  These do not come with rounded corners. We had planned on selling them that way but had to switch to the square corners (as shown in the last photo on the product website). As soon as I have a chance I will rephotograph them to show the square edges but I wanted to go ahead and list this at the same time as the birthday cards. They are in stock and ready to ship, though and will be rephotographed as soon as I have a chance.

We also have our Happy Birthday To You print now available in the larger 11 by 14 size (along with the 8 by 10's we introduced earlier this month).

And there is also our large download:

I hope you all are having a wonderful Thursday!

The Pool Family Kitchen

We've been busy up here in NH! Yesterday I photographed Jamie's nursery and also some new things in her dining room and a couple of new products. We've also been working on yardwork at "Jason's house" and today I am planning on painting the front door and then priming the kitchen cabinets - or at least getting started on them. The granite has been installed and the new appliances are in (except for the hood) and we found some wood for the island countertop, so things are starting to take shape. Even if we don't have everything done (which we probably won't) I'm hoping we will have made enough progress on the kitchen to at least take some "during" type shots before we head back home. 

In the meantime, though, I wanted to share with you some photos of the beautiful kitchen of one of our readers who I have gotten to know well. She is so talented. I know you all will love what she has done with her kitchen!

A few weeks ago we shared some of the photos that readers had sent in of their framed chalkboard prints. We shared quite a few photos of Kris Pool's dining room where she had one of our Easter downloads framed. We got all sorts of e-mails asking to see more of her home and she was kind enough to take some photos of her kitchen for me so I could share it all with you!

Happy Birthday, My Little Lola Wren

Today our little Lorelei Wren turns two. It's so hard to believe that it's been two whole years since she arrived. It's even harder to imagine life before her, though! We are so blessed to have her in our lives - she's such a sweet and happy little girl. She is so incredibly loving and is so full of life (and mischief too). =)  

Here are a few of my favorite photos of her from the last two years:

She started doing this little smirk early on and still does it. 


In case you can't tell, she's a big fan of chocolate doughnuts... 

 ...and lollipops...

well, actually pretty much she's a fan of any food I can bribe her with to try to get a photo! =)

That same little smirk!
We brought her home from the hospital on Easter Sunday two years ago.

 Here she was all grown up looking this Easter!

I hope you all have a blessed Monday! I'll be back tonight to announce the two winners of our growth charts! There is still time to enter if you head over now!
