My youngest son has a birthday coming up and he is one cat crazy fella, he decided he wanted a cat-themed birthday party so we have been having fun coming up with ideas for it. It’s sneaking up on us quickly so I made up some invitations the other day so we could quickly get them into the mail.
You simply print them on cardstock, cut them out, punch little holes for the brad fasteners and put them together! I found the tiny brads that look like buttons at Michael’s craft store.
Once made you can fold them up and fit them into card sized envelopes.
I made a plain invitation for you if you’d like to use it for a cat party of your own. Download it here These invitations are free for personal use only.

A Valentine for you dear blog readers, won’t you be mine?
Please feel free to print and use for personal valentines! You cut them out and add a mini brad at the bottom so the card opens to reveal the box of chocolates inside, and then you can write you message of love on the back. I had mine printed on cardstock at Staples.

My cards arrived from Minted
and I couldn’t be happier! I recently picked up a cheap little pen and ink set with ideas of writing all the addresses on my envelopes and I was thinking it was a little crazy and I probably wouldn’t be able to do it…until I actually played around the with quill and became totally obsessed. It was before my cards arrived so I amused myself one evening practicing by writing a pretend Christmas card list (yeah, that’s totally normal right?) I love writing with this little quill pen so much that I told Tom I was going to pack it and the pot of ink in my purse and pull it out whenever I had to sign receipts. Of course I joke, but normally I just don’t enjoy the act of writing, but something about the quill forces me to write slower? I don’t know what it is, but I love it.
Obviously I am no calligrapher, but it’s very pleasing indeed and after addressing over 25 envelopes today with to and from addresses, I am not burnt out on it either, I just want to write more.
Ok so I wanted to share with you my Santa Claus photo booth pictures
. You can print it out on photo paper (I had mine done at Staples) and cut them into strips to tuck into cards, use as a holiday bookmark, etc.
