she’s having a baby

November 10, 2010 |  by  |  SHOP NEWS
My sister in law, that is. These are exciting times for the clan. :)We’re throwing her a book themed baby shower. Over the weekend, I got together with Michelle (my sister-in law’s sister) and we printed, assembled and mailed out these lovelies, designed and illustrated by Michelle herself. Her artistic abilities and creativity seriously blows me away. My only measly contribution to this project was the chocolate brown matting and the sewn edge.

    Oh good grief – TOO CUTE!!

    can I make them even if I'm not having a baby?

    would my friends think I was weird if I sent out b-day invites just like these…hmmm?
