A Sprinkle of Pixie Dust

Take a look at the invitations I made for Sam. She loves fairies, the colors purple & pink and all things shiny, sparkly & pretty,

Each invites came in with these equally colorful envelopes.

If you have any comments, suggestions or questions please drop me a line. I'd love to hear from you.

Have a productive week ahead everyone!

A Grateful Heart

So many blessings.

For today it's welcome home dad,
For a month and a half.
So very precious,
Must make every moment count.
Time will fly,
I know.
Am already dreading the goodbyes,
But must focus on today.
And simply be thankful.

Money {Gift} Holders

Hello blog peeps! I've been feeling yucky the past days due to my allergic rhinitis & itchy throat. It didn't help much that I also had to care for my youngest who was battling the same things plus a high fever. Uuuggghhh!

So, my share today is actually something I came up weeks prior.

Money holders is what they are.

Perhaps you've seen similar ones out there, but I've added something to my design which I think is quite ingenious.

I added a unique sticker label at the back where the names of the recipient and giver can be written in.

Your gift of money will surely be more appreciated wrapped in one of these.

Happy weekend everyone!

02.01.11 | A Present for Mom

Mothers always want to care for their children; to hug them and love them. Or simply just to be near them no matter what age they are. However, this was never the case for my mom.

She never had us with her all at one time while growing up most especially now that we're adults and have families of our own. It is also mainly because two of my siblings live in the other side of the world from us. Mom has to take an almost 24 hour plane ride to be with them for a short time until she has to go back home to the Philippines.

So, for her birthday this year my brothers, sister & I along with our respective partners planned a simple surprise for her. Nothing ostentatious, but very much from our hearts.

Here's one of the gift we surprised her with. It's a "Family Love Box".

It is 4 x 4 in box that explodes into a 12 x 12 in scrapbook page with photos of Mom, her children and grandchildren.

It also came with a coordinating card.

Now, Mom can be with her four children and seven grandkids anytime, all the time.

Happy Birthday Ma! We love you!
