Valentine's day gifts and decor

I have been ordering from Parabo Press for a couple of years now and I love them. If you follow my Instagram, you've probably heard me mention them since that's where I get many of my pictures for memory keeping. I want to share a few ideas you can use for Valentine's day gifts or decor. First, these 5x5 prints on stationary paper. Tied up with a string, these make a such a cute gift. They come in a set of 25 prints. You can also order the smaller 4x4 ones for free. Yep free. 

I love our gallery wall of these prints in our entry way. I added some Valentine's day decor to it for February. 

I ordered this poster print and rails for my husband for Valentine's day. The magnetic wood rails make hanging up a nice print super easy. And we can easily change out the print whenever we decide to order an updated print.  The size of this one is 16x22.

Here is a close up of the rails. And the poster print quality is great. 

I always love cute packaging. Look at the way Parabo packages your stuff.

december daily 2017

One of my favorite projects each year is a Christmas journal, or December daily. This was my 6th year making one, and I love it. 

I tried to add as much vintage ephemera as I could since the only thing better than vintage, is "vintage Christmas." The tree on the cover is from an antique store. It's a Hallmark two sided decoration. 

I added "tangibles" whenever I could. Here you see Legos in a sleeve. This represents the ornaments we made with legos.

I added my kids' art work here and there. That's one of my favorite things to add. It makes it SO personal. This is Greyson's drawing of our elf. 

I hand cut out letters with patterned papers. 

I dedicated a page to baby Jesus, since he's the reason for the whole holiday. I used words to describe him from an Illustrated Faith Christmas paper. 

I even added a snapchat showing a not so good day. Not every day needs to be fabulous. Lets be real, some days are not that great. Haha (More about this on the video at bottom of post).

I printed an image of the movie, STAR on an instax. I simply googled "star movie" and took a screenshot, then printed it. I also had the cutest star confetti, so I added it inside a sleeve with our movie tickets. I hope the tickets won't fade as fast in the sleeve. 

Here is a video with a walk through and talk through of each page. Thanks for checking it out! 


Here are the projects I made with the Cocoa Daisy kit for December. This kit was travel themed, with lots of tags, envelopes, hot air balloons, and more. I made this accordion style mini album showing some current pictures. I didn't have a recent trip to document, but I made this with the travel theme anyway showing that our life is an adventure. 

Here is a process video I made:

I made this 12x12 layout showing my cute cub scout, Radley. 

Here is a pocket page documenting our Thanksgiving. I love those little tags that spell "happy."

And one more 12x12 page all about my little Crew sleeping in a big boy bed. The soft colors of the kit were great for a baby boy. 


rad plaid

Introducing: Rad plaid bow ties and bows. The perfect accessory for your holiday parties and church. These also make a great stocking stuffer with many prints to choose from. 

Bows and Bow ties: $6 each or 3 for $15

TO ORDER: e-mail me at with your selcection and sizes and I will then send you an invoice through paypal (even if you don't have a paypal account). You will receive an invoice by e-mail, and can securely make a payment. Bows will then be made and shipped within 3-5 days. 

Shipping is $2 in the USA. Buy 3 or more and shipping is FREE.

 the Radley: approx 4 1/2 inches (child)
the Greyson: approx 4 inches (toddler)
the Crew: approx 3 1/2 inches (baby)

The back of the bows and bow ties have a hair clip which slides right into a button up shirt for a boy or into a girls hair.

YES, the bow ties and bows are made EXACTLY the same way. So if you like a fabric from the bow tie collection for a girl, that works just fine!  You can also mix and match from both collections for one order. :)

Let me know if you have any questions.
