Little E's Birth Announcement.

April 19, 2010

Turns out, that whole confession thing works. It actually motivated me to address a few of those lingering issues..... To wit: Little E's birth announcements have gone out (most of them anyway)!!

Here's what I did this time around. (Photo by the amazing Kim...)
A letterpress card (designed by the also super-awesome Brenda):
Brenda told me to use these envelopes (in "papaya). Because she knows this sort of thing.

I love how this announcement turned out. Makes me a little sad it is our last one, you know?

  2. okay, so this means that if I don't get D's announcements out until summer it's okay?

    Your updated birth story was beautiful. So glad you shared. And that all is well with you and your fam. xx

  3. I love the announcement and little e's name. that is my next pick for a girl (it was my great grandmother's name). My almost 3 year old is Eleanor, and I think that would be a good pairing. We also love C-man's name. That is in the running if we have a boy!

  16. LOVE this announcement. Very, very inspiring. And I also love PS's envelopes in papaya too. I have some of their pillow boxes in that very color right now and am wondering what to do with them!

  17. Nice to read the poem om your birth card. It's a dutch poem translated into english.
    I considered putting it on the birth card of one of our tree boys and I even know it by heart:

    ik zoek een woord
    een heel nieuw woord
    een woord dat niemand kent
    ik zoek een woord
    dat zeggen wil
    dat jij de liefste bent

  18. Hello,
    When I design custom invitations, I offer to design custom postage for my clients to complete the look of their invitation package. The party starts when the guests open their invitations, so setting the tone of the party with the invitation is important. But even before the envelope is opened, the first impression the guest has of the invitation is what’s on the outside.
