The 2012 Holiday Card Collection has arrived!

So generally this blog is reserved for all the exciting (and not-so-exciting) daily happenings with our family. Well, I'm doing a little cross-blog posting today. Here is this afternoon's post from The Sunday Paperie Blog, introducing the new Holiday Cards I've designed:

As is anything worth doing, the 2012 Holiday Cards Collection became a labor of love over these last couple of months. Around Labor Day, I began thinking about what I wanted to do with this year's Holiday Cards Collection.

I had LOTS of ideas and didn't want there to be too many directions for the 12 cards I was going to offer this holiday season. I wanted them to translate to any family or style, and still have their own personalities (I know -- it's a lot to ask from a piece of paper, but a girl can hope).

A special offer -- order by 10/31 and receive 20% off with checkout code HOLLY12.

Don't have your photos ready by then? It's ok -- place your order by 10/31 and we'll wait until we receive your photo to create your digital proof (this way we know the order is coming and you still save some $$$!) Questions? Let us know at

Here is what we're offering, after much deliberation. I hope you love them as much as I do.

Cleaning a Pack-n-Play

My mommy friends often ask me how to clean a Pack-n-Play. Likely because my toddler is all about making the biggest messes possible. After a few rounds of taking a damp rag to it like the manual suggests (HA), I thought, there has to be a more effective way to do this. Look at that dingy grossness:

So what does Pinterest suggest we use to clean, like, everything? Dawn and White Vinegar. I'll try anything once.

Here's how it went down:

1) Filled a bathtub with hot hot hot water, 1 c Dawn and 2 c White Vinegar.

2) Folded up the Pack-n-Play, shaking out any crumbs (there are always crumbs), and laid the whole thing down into the hot bath. I ran my hands along the netting and material to agitate any dirt and grime off of them.

3) Allow to soak about 15 minutes. To rinse, I drained out the tub water, then turned on the shower and hopped in to direct the shower head all over the Pack-n-Play to rinse well.

4) To dry, you can either lug it outside, pop it open (upside down) and allow to …

Welcome to the Thirty-One family!

I'm so excited to report I've joined thirty-one gifts as a consultant for their products. I've been a long-time shopper and after a YEAR of haggling with my sister about joining, I decided to bite the bullet.

The best part truly was the low start up cost to join and test the waters. For only $99, you get $800 worth of product and if you decide it's not for you, you keep everything to enjoy.

For only $99, select the Bright & Bold or Black & White Kit:
