Elissa's shower

Sunday, January 13, 2008





Yesterday, I hosted a baby shower for my dear friend, Elissa. It was such a nice day and after the shower, Elissa and I went to get pedicures and manicures together. I loved spending that time with her. We cannot wait to meet little Jack Mason!

P.S. I am still in the "playing around" stages of the blog design. I am learning a lot and practicing some things. So, this header is not a final product at all. It is simply my very first attempt.

  8. I am sooooo glad you posted the pictures. When you said you were closing the blinds for a little to plan a shower, etc. I just knew the shower would be perfect (not b/c of shutting the blinds - but because everything you do is done with class and elegance). I love the cake, the favors are so creative - I am just impressed throughout! Great job!

  16. I love your blog! I just found it. Question though...I saw you've scrapbooked in the past. Me too, are you still scrapbooking or just blogging? Do you know if you can save a blog, like on a cd or something? Also, I love your header how did you do that?

    Thanks for the advice!

  17. OH what a beautiful shower you hosted for your friend. She certainly is glowing. How sweet of you to celebrate the upcoming arrival of a precious little life with such a beautiful shower. Your decorations are exquisite. It is obvious that much love went into this shower and I am sure your dear friend appreciated it so much.
    Your house is just beautiful. I love all of the windows.

  18. Jennifer,

    No time for scrapbooking right now. Yes, there is a place that will print and bind your blog. I forget what it is called but you can google it. I'll look it up and try to post it soon.

    I made the header with some digital scrapbook materials and lumapix. I am such a novice (just started today) but it is pretty easy to figure out.

    Hope that helps.

  37. Beautiful shower! And, I love your blog header... how are you doing that (just saw your comment, so never mind on that one)? I would love to create my own and am trying to figure all the HTML code for the background. Also, what photo editing software do you use?

    Received my first pinafores for my Sophie... thanks to you, I am now addicted to etsy!
