I’m eagerly awaiting the birth of one sweet, baby girl (not mine, people)!

A couple of weeks ago, some friends and I threw a baby shower to help our friend, Jamie, get ready for life after delivery. I was thrilled to get to design something unique for her.

Jamie has been into the hand-done look lately, so I thought it would be fun to incorporate some loose calligraphy.

I found some beautiful, stock vector art in these flowers…I just love the style! They are reminiscent of Rifle Paper Company, and there’s just something warm and happy about them (and girly)! :)

How cute is that little duckie and diaper pin? Baby invites are just too much fun…

We even made some last minute cards for the food and drinks…

The shower was a lot of fun, and Jamie got some much-needed baby gear. More shower pics coming soon!

We can’t wait to meet you baby girl Lumpkin!

I always post when I have one million other things to do. And, I do have one million other things to be working on right now. But I need a break from it all, so here’s a quick peek at what’s been going on lately…

I’ve been playing with some calligraphy…

Just got done with an outstanding calligraphy class, and though I am practicing the more formal copperplate calligraphy, I like to have fun with my own style of modern as well. So, I doodle my husband’s name like we’re in middle school again for practice. :)

I’ve been hanging out with Copper…

“Can I have some, mom? Pleeeease??” (tail is wagging excitedly at this point). In case you’re wondering, the answer is no. We do not give our dog chocolate milk.

We’ve taken some beautiful Fall walks…

And played at our favorite lacrosse field near our house…

And, yes. I’m obsessed with our pup.

I’m sure you can’t tell.

I’ve got stories, design updates, and some previews from some new things at nimblee coming later. For now, I’m trying to remember to take all of these little moments in and fully enjoy them–even in the midst of lots of work and lots of “to-dos”.
