When she stepped out of the car I about died of glee.
The shoes. Oh the shoes.
But they would have to wait, first she had to greet her groom…
and squeeze her soon to be stepson…
and let those shoes walk her down the aisle to marry her man.
Strike a few poses with the family (and maybe a photo bomb from the boys)
and finally…some alone time with her
shoes new husband…
A beautiful new family.
I can’t say it enough, I love a newborn session.
I especially love when little baby has an older sibling…like this cutie pie
The thing is, sometimes despite how much they love their new little brother or sister, it’s not always easy to share the spotlight. So I like to come in and shine the spotlight on them for just a short while.
Daddy came in for some one on one time
And finally it was time for little brother’s debut
Sleep tight sweet boy.
It’s January…chances either you yourself are recently engaged (congratulations) or you KNOW someone who is.
Time to start planning!
First things first, pick a date. Next up, engagement session. Why? So you can send out your ‘Save The Dates’ to your guests!
I was recently contacted by Minted (read my disclosure policy here) to review their new line of Save the Dates so I picked out a few of my favorites for you that are in line with the top wedding trends for 2015. No surprise, my picks will all have photos…!
So why do I love Minted so? Oh let’s see, just a few reasons. Thick, luxurious paper. Fast turnaround. Complimentary proofs with every order. FREE guest addressing. Options, options, options. Need I say more? No matter what your style or budget Minted has what you need.

Or maybe your dream wedding is Elegant and Sophisticated
“White Lace” (foil-pressed)
In recent years Rustic has been enormously popular, but this year this will get downright country. Here’s a couple of styles to inspire your inner cowgirl:
“Rustic Charm” (Option to add photo on the back for this one!)
So perhaps you’re thinking these are all lovely but where’s the sense of humor? Never Fear…
It gets better, from now until January 12 get 15% off all wedding with code WINTERWED.
Now go get started and happy planning!
If you happened to see my post on my daughter’s room reveal, you might remember these pinwheel flowers I have hanging on her wall.
I actually made these for her 3rd birthday party (she’s 6 now!) as a decoration but I loved them so much I used them in her room. What I love so much about them is that they fit in her room now just as well as they did when she was 3.
I thought I would share the super simple tutorial on how I made these.
Start by choosing you paper. You could do any type really, from wrapping paper to scrapbook paper. I used scrapbook paper because it’s nice and thick and already comes in a square shape. Get two squares of equal size.
Start by folding the end over of one of your pieces. My folds are about an inch wide but it’s up to you.
Flip it over and fold again like an accordion. Just follow the same size as your original fold.
Repeat until you have the whole paper folded and then do the same thing with your other sheet.
Next, fold both of your accordions in half. Take the two end that meet and either glue (hot glue, glue stick) or staple them together.
Bring the other two ends together and fix those together as well.
You’re done! If you want to add an embellishment to the center the sky is the limit. I’ve used other pieces of scrapbook paper, buttons, flowers, pins…a great place to shop is the clearance bin of any craft store. I used hot glue to fasten it.
I happen to love the itty bitty ones
To hang them, I used skinny, long nails. But you could also use wall hanging putty.
Have fun! Let me know how it goes…
