Mother's Day Tears and Design fun

Sunday was Mother's Day my first thought was ughh.. just another reminder that I am not one yet. My second thought I have been blessed with the greatest mom ever! I have also been blessed with a pretty awesome Mother-in-Law. Both have become very important women and role models in my life. And for that reason I was going to try and not be sad about Mother's Day but try and make the best of it.. I woke up somewhat tired on Sunday morning walked into the kitchen and there was my sweet husband standing there with a grin on his face, I then took a look on the kitchen table where there was a cute little Giraffe gift bag inside the gift bag was a little shirt that read my mom rocks and a bunch of cute little bibs and a mother to be Mother's day card for me. Immediately tears start running down my face. Justin looks at me and says "What?" as he smiles ear to ear.. Yep! you got it this is why I married this man he is the biggest sweetest guy ever! He just knows how to make me happy when I am sad and is there with me through think and thin. I know he will be the best Dad ever!

So after the tears and hugs Justin informs me that there are not a lot of  designs for mother's to be that don't have a pregnant lady on them.. I thought humm I can fix that, well maybe not this year but maybe next year. So my next design project is going to be to make designs that are geared towards those of us who are building our families through adoption. I started working on this today. Here is an example of a baby shower invite that I have been working on.


  1. Awww… Sweet husband, indeed! And definitely a great design idea. I could be one of your first customers!

  2. Thanks Beth! I think I am going to do a couple of different color versions too that are more neutral this one is kind of girly. Thanks for commenting! It's always great to hear from you guys! :) Hope everything is going well for you guys!

  3. Finally catching up on reading your blog. By the way, I just started updating my blog again. If you decide to put the adoptive mother's day or shower card on etsy, let me know. I would love to do a post about it on my blog.

  4. I actually have it up on snapfish. Here is a link :) Thanks so much! I appreciate it!
