I promise I’ll get to Em’s party very soon. I’m nearly done editing the pictures!

In the meantime, how about I share this lovely custom house illustration with you?

This weekend while friends were in town, we were able to scratch Peter Pan Mini Golf off of our Ultimate Austin List. It was great! A nice + shady spot for an early morning activity great for both kids and grownups. I loved spotting the iconic Austin sculptures like the Pennybacker Bridge. It gets a thumbs up from us!

em's fifth birthday

This weekend, Em turned five! She wanted a mermaid theme, so we had a little undersea celebration. I’m looking forward to sharing her party + paper details with you!

Oh, happiest of birthdays to you – our sweet, silly, brave, bright, beautiful little girl!

We have these custom moving announcements + house-proud holiday cards to share with you today! The holiday cards were folded cards with a lovely deckled edge. The outside featured their gorgeous new home and address. The inside was blank for a personal message.

Congratulations A family. We hope you are enjoying your new home!

Today, we’re sharing a particularly special house sketch with you all. Special because it’s a custom moving announcement and birth announcement combo! Such big + wonderful changes all in a little custom card.

Hearty congratulations to you, C family!

Last week, Em’s school had a few fun dress up days.

On the left, dress up like your favorite storybook character. It was a toss up until that very day between Pinkalicious and Emily Elizabeth from Clifford. I think her being able to take Clifford to school for show and tell won her over. We had most in her closet – added a few buttons to a hot pink cardigan. However, the pink and black striped knee highs were a challenge to find at the last minute. For reference, these adult arm warmers were perfect for her! We just sewed up the thumbs and cut out the extra fabric.

On the right, dress up like your chosen profession. A few days prior she decided on being a teacher. We pulled out the dress from her pre-k pictures, again tossed on a cardigan and popped out the lens to her sunglasses.

She had such fun deciding on what to be and seeing what all her friends chose!
