I definitely thought I’d post more than once while we’ve been up here in the snow, but well, I don’t know, I suppose I’ve been enjoying time away from the computer. But before the holidays official end, I thought I’d sneak in our xmas cards.
I bought a wooden stamp at a little shop in Culver City on a whim on day and it turned out to be the perfect design element for our cards. I think it’s actually a dove, olive branch and all. How serendipitous! It must be an old fabric stamp or something? It seems like it might have come from India or southeast Asia, but what do I know.
To print using the stamp, I bought a white ink pad from Paper Source. It worked like a charm. And the rest of the card is gocco’d.
The vintage Christmas stamps have been stashed away for a few years, since absolutely binging on vintage stamps when collecting them for our wedding invites. Aren’t they the cutest?
You’ve seen the inside already, but here it is again for good measure.
And then the requisite photo of our most darlingest baby. He just keeps getting more and more delicious.
Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone! I’m hitting the slopes today for the first time in two years. Pregnancy and babies seriously get in the way of time on the mountain. Not especially looking forward to squeezing myself into my pre-baby snowboarding pants. Ack.
Women should be allowed to purchase an entirely new wardrobe after the birth of their first child. In case anyone was taking suggestions for how the world should work.
