This is it! Finally, I am writing real blog content. This is my very first blog post on my oh so beautiful new blog! I can’t even tell you how excited I am to begin blogging. I must take this opportunity to thank my friend, Jonathan, who was so kind to take me on as a charity case and complete my blog in record time! Thank you Jonathan! Check your mail box soon because I am going to send you some yummy goodness!!

Since we just had a new baby, it seemed fitting that I would start a brand spankin’ new blog and add some new items to my etsy shop. If I’m being honest though, our baby isn’t as “new” as I had hoped he would be. Somehow time has totally eluded me and I’m not sure how it’s already May. With that being said, starting with Emerson’s birth, he’s the new baby, made the most sense.

First, let me take the opportunity to formally introduce you. This is Emerson Martin Wilcox. Isn’t he adorable. I know that everyone thinks their children are cute, but I really do have the most beautiful boys. I’m totally not biased either! Take a look for yourself.

See. . . I told you he was beautiful!

My fabulously talented brother-in-law, Ryan, took these photos less than a week after Emerson arrived. I will take this opportunity to shamelessly plug his photography business. Check Ryan out at and tell him that I sent you! He will be happy you stopped by to visit. Here are some more of the photos he took that day!

Emerson was born just before Christmas. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do a “traditional” birth announcement or not since I was planning on sending out Christmas cards too. I opted for a slightly non-traditional bookmark birth announcement. This was accompanied by a tri-fold Christmas card. I was really happy with the results. I had these done through the printing press I use on pearl cardstock. They are beautiful and shimmer, but a bit hard to photograph. What do you think?

These will be one of the new items available in my Etsy shop. Stay tuned for the “Re-Grand Opening” at the end of the week. I will be posting some giveaways soon too. Don’t you just love blog giveaways? I know I do! Heck, I’m still trying to win a KitchenAid Mixer from The Pioneer Women, but that’s a whole different blog post. Yeah, I already have something else to talk about! Good, I am on a roll!

I think this will conclude my first blog post. Stay tuned for more new products and rambles. How did I do?
