2000 and 5

2000 greeting cards ready to be packaged. 

5 little eggs ready to hatch.

Just a few of the happenings around here lately. I've been working hard on my little's a little peek at the thank you notes. Recipe cards are at their final destination and everything else will be unleashed later on this week.

Mama and Papa bird have been busy guarding their nest in our porch light. I snapped a quick photo while they were away. Sometimes I forget that they're there and I'm startled when a bird zooms out of the lamp as I walk out the front door. 


Also, I've been thinking a lot about this article regarding photo usage and blogs. And I've made the decision to stick with primarily my own photos. Any other photos you see here will either be used by permission or are promotional photos that are meant to be blogged (like from items that are for sale, or photos with a "blog this" or "share this" link)...I'll still be using those in my inspiration boards and Happy Friday posts, etc. I've employed my new photo philosophy for a while now, but I thought I should let you know. Plus, nobody wants to see just a bunch of photos I took from somewhere else, right? Anyhow, that's my new outlook on blogging.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We made these lettuce wraps on Saturday, and they were really fantastic. We spent most of the weekend playing and I took a heavenly nap on Sunday afternoon. I was so distracted by all the fun and the rest that I didn't do nearly enough laundry. Pretty sure B had to wear dirty socks to work today. Oops. It won't kill him, right? Probably builds character. Or fungus. But I'll stick with character and hope for the best. :)

2000 cards!!!! I bet your packaging will be as deilghtful as the card design. :):) I bet using your own photographs will make this space more uniquely YOU! :) For me, when I look back at my blog in ten years (?)... my personal images will mean the most to me! I think pinterest is perfect for show casing what inspires us and a blogs is perfect for show casing our HEART and SOUL! :):)
