We've just created this design and it's available through the retail store and here at the etsy store. This is a wonderfully flexible design. We have a huge variety of decorative papers at the store if you would like a different color scheme. It works as a great invitation for a rehearsal dinner, birthday party, engagement party or wedding!

Did you skip the Christmas cards this year? You're not alone! Many people were feeling too harried, didn't have a good enough photo or thought it was an expense they didn't want to add to the holiday budget. It's understandable! But remember that your friends do enjoy hearing from you and they also enjoy seeing you and your kids in photos.
If you're still on the fence about it, we have several of our holiday designs that can be turned into new year's cards on our etsy store.

I have a "thing" for nesting dolls. When my children get old enough to NOT RUIN THEM by turning them into bowling pins, cat toys or missiles (such as when they are in college), I'm going to start a collection for my own private enjoyment.
This is a favorite etsy seller of mine called mooshoopork, showcasing these charming "Old Men" nesting dolls. I think they are so charming!

It's finally up! This was, as usual, a collaborative effort. We wanted to coordinate the window with our holiday wrapping designs (to be posted soon) so we used the deer in the woods pink/dark berry color scheme.
The rest was Lindsay's sweat and tears. We found a cardboard deer on-line and Lindsay painstakingly deconstructed it, scanned the pieces, redrew the pieces in a larger size (for better impact in the window), printed them out and transferred them onto large corrugated cardboard pieces. Then we trimmed the pieces and fit them together. Later we half-thought that since the deer we bought was called the "Buck Jr" that there was possible a "Buck Sr" in the right size but it was too awful to think that...
Then we created the whimsical trees out of cardboard and tissue and the rest is history.
