Be My Valentine…diy

if you’ve been following my blog and i for a while you will already know how much we love this holiday.  this year we chose bookmarks which is perfect for my resident kindergartener (learning to read) and resident 2nd grader (can’t read enough).

Valentine's DIY

any picture you take can be made into the most amazing products these days!  and of course, i can help you with those too 🙂  so due to lack of time this year and the boys growing pickiness, we went with the same bookmark , just tweaked a bit.

Moose a Muffin

I’m baaaaaack!  Wow!  What a crazy, busy  fall we had!  Hence, the lack of posts.  There were so many awesome senior sessions and families that I didn’t post, because, frankly, we were just too busy!   I’ll try and be better in 2014!  I do instagram quite a bit, so check me out there!  thistleandmuse.

So here’s to a new start, and I am posting my Mairead’s first birthday party!  This theme was the most fun – her invitations rocked, I have to admit.  I made them by scanning the book {If You Give a Moose a Muffin} and then using Photoshop to design the invitation.  I had matching return address label stickers and thank you notes too 🙂  Brunch was a blast, we made sock puppets and had a puppet show!  A GREAT day!  Perfect for my perfect girl 🙂
