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!

Time to play a little catch up. So many things to share with you guys! First up is this sketch we did for Southern Living Magazine last year. It’s a sketch of Lindsay Bierman’s gorgeous home. At the time, he was the Editor-In-Chief of Southern Living, and he announced his departure on our stationery.

We are still pinching ourselves over this piece being featured!

Like many three, four, and five year olds… Em was the popular snow queen for halloween this year. There was a sea of blue that night. Elsas everywhere. So adorable.
