Disney Baby Blog


Well, I didn't know until a couple weeks ago that Disney Baby has a blog, but they do, and a simple Valentine's Day card I made was on it a few days ago. Now if only I could get them to pay me to design . . .

The Julep Blog


One of my favorite designs that I've made for Minted.com was featured on the Julep blog today. You can purchase it or see the other two color options HERE. I love this notebook, and I was lucky enough to win first place with this design.

All About Me


Well this isn't all about me actually, but you can have your own All About Me sheet to fill out yourself or for your friends and family. I've had an ongoing goal to write down accomplishments and milestones on each of my kids' birthdays, but honstly that rarely happens. So now at the beginning of each year I'll be filling out one of these for each of my kids. I think once a year is more practical for me!
I have kids ranging in ages from 10 to almost 2 and I tried to make most of the questions apply to all those ages, which essentially can apply to anyone.

Dix Family



I recently took pictures for my friend Debi (who also happens to cut my hair that random strangers compliment me on all the time) and her husband's family.

Free downloadable printable


This printable was inspired by my daughter. We were having a discussion about doing things that are hard and she told me that her teacher last year had a quote over her board that said "I can do hard things." I was totally surprised that she remembered it from her previous teacher's classroom, and decided that it would be great to have hanging in her room. This is the second time that she has repeated a quote she's seen on a wall and I realized that they really seem to resonate with her. The more inspiring and encouraging things she remembers, the better! I thought this would be a great birthday or christmas present for your little ones' rooms. 

This can be printed on an 8.5x11" piece of card stock and framed in an 8x10" frame, like this one from Ikea. HERE is a more boyish version (that my daughter likes):



And HERE is the more girly one:

Luke: 19 Months


Lukie is a gentle giant. Really, 98th percentile for height and weight. He is incredibly sweet, cuddly, somewhat shy, not a leader but will excitedly follow anyone doing something fun with a smile and a giggle. He loves to show you his treasures, but doesn't like to share them because he really becomes attached to things and will clutch a toy in his hand all day. He is a big laugher, with a joyous belly laugh that's contagious. 




This is blurry, but this is how Luke is a lot of the time. Giant smile and giant dimples.






Is there a dog outside? That's what I said to get them to look in the same direction. They are both obsessed with dogs and birds.

Jude: 19 Months


Our little Judester has an energetic, feisty, playful, and when he is tired, a very cuddly personality. We call him monkey because he likes to climb on everything, including me. If I let go of him while holding him, he won't fall . . . he somehow clings and holds on. It is adorable. He is super social and wants to be held and see what is going on at all times, but then he gets excited about something else and wants to be put down and runs off as quickly as he can. I can tell his footsteps apart from Luke's, light and fast. 




Say to him "Don't smiiiile," and he gives you the smirk. He can't hold it in.
