random thoughts...

1.  I really like the new show called Parenthood, in fact I am watching it right now...Tuesday nights, 10 p.m. on  NBC. Check it out. There are a lot of good people in it, I am sure you will recognize many of the faces :)

2.  These are some new labels that are now in my shop...I have been loving these pennant banners. I had a burlap one made that said Joyeux Noel for Christmas. This etsy shop that makes the best ones!

3.  I am now realizing that shopping for things to put in your 1-year old's easter basket is really, really hard.

4.  I am overtired...time to hit the sack. G'night.


Another one outta here...

Feels like a final exam day here.
110 invites completed and out the door. Another set in the wings almost there...

What's up next?

Completing some etsy.com orders, a set of shower invites, a wedding program, 1st birthday invites, favor tags and some save the date cards ♥



I haven't been a very good blogger lately. I am sorry. Life is hectic right now. I blame my real job. Just recently I took over a whole bunch of work. What used to be work of three people is now work of one - ME! Yes, I am thankful I have a J-O-B :) But, seriously how many times do I have to be thankful for this job of which I received a pay-cut from last year & added a lot of responsibilities to this year?

Plus it's wedding season and I have had a few orders for wedding invites too. I have to admit - weddings are fun and I personally LOVED getting married. Each time I get to design and print new invites, I get to vicariously live out my wedding again... in a different place, with different colors and fun invitations. And just how do I do this? Well, I make a sample of each invite to keep and I insert my name/info for that one. I have gotten married many places!

In other news, and this is pretty funny...

I gave Leighton a bath today and she pooped in the tub! It was gross and funny at the same time. I am shocked that it hasn't happened before today, honestly. Nothing like having your nicely scrubbed infant dropping kids off in her pool. Needless to say, tonight turned into a two bath night.

Leighton has also learned to count. She can count up to three on her own. And up to ten if I say every other number. For example - Mommy says one, Lei-Lei says two, Mommy says three, Lei-lei says four...we do this all the way up to ten. She likes to count best when crawling up the stairs. It's is quite impressive (ha, ha) ♥


just around the corner.

Spring...it's almost here. Today I actually had to take my jacket off when I was driving in the car. It was awesome. I feel like I always have a little extra pep in my step when it's sunshiny outside. Recently I bought some of this body spray and body lotion from Victoria Secret called Island Waters...and it reminds me of summer with the essences of coconut and pineapple. It's yummy and my new favorite scent! The packaging reminds me of a beach dress ♥

Come on Spring!

Please pick out the labels you love and let me know how you want them personalized. Send it to me via e-mail: donahue_jackie{at}yahoo{dot}com.

There were good odds with this contest since there were only 13 entries. So I hope you all will enter my next one. It's so fun to give stuff away. Almost better than winning it yourself...well, of course winning the Mega Millions would be something nice to win, I have to say.

Thank you for all of the nice comments about my labels. Its awesome to have new friends. Thank you for reading my blog! XOXO.

More contests to come soon ♥


glitter makes it better.

Remember that glitter set I bought with my 50% off coupon earlier this week? Well...I figured out what I can do with it...

Aren't they pretty? I loved how they turned out. I am going to add the circle ones to my etsy site. The curvy ones shown were just for fun. I love the shape of them, but they are each hand cut and honestly, I'd cry if I had to cut 50 of them out. But, I know beauty comes with a price and these would come with some seriously cramped up hands :)

Check my etsy site soon for the new g*l*i*t*t*e*r labels!

label freak.

I told you I would be uploading new labels every day to my etsy site...and so not to disappoint, here is one for Monday ♥

another label.

It was a crazy weekend. I made a lot of labels, printed shower invitations and packed up a lot of sweet packages. I hope they brighten the day of the persons who will be opening them. I take great care in packing my items - they have to be pretty. I love to get nicely wrapped packages and gifts in the mail, don't you?

After working so hard over the weekend, I decided to reward myself with a little present from Michaels. I had a 50% off coupon that was burning a hole in my pocket...so I bought this:

Aren't they pretty and sparkly? I love them. Normally I would not buy something like this - as they are $30.00 (at full price). Expensive for glitter, no? But...I justified my purchase with the coupon and now I have every single color of the rainbow and then some. Cannot wait to use them!
