    We are thrilled to share some exciting news with you all; baby #3 is on the way!  We couldn’t be more thrilled about this new blessing.  I’m 13 weeks today and feeling pretty good, overall.  This pregnancy has gone by so quick already, probably because I’m chasing after two little ones  :).  We can’t wait to welcome this baby into our family early March!

    “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” -James 1:17

    Hi Friends!

    I hope you all have been soaking up these last days of summer, we sure have over here.  We celebrated both kids’ birthdays at the beginning of August by having a vintage carnival themed party in the backyard.  It was so much fun!  I’m hoping to have a post about that soon  :).  We get our birthday invites from Snail Mail Designs every year.  I am always blown away by the beautiful designs and quality of printing!  Here was the invitation from this year:

    And here was E’s invitation from last year.

    Snail Mail Designs has also created these custom Scripture prints for each of our kids.  It is really special to have these beautiful promises of God displayed in Ernie and Elsie’s rooms.  Here is Earnest’s print, Psalm 63 is where we got the inspiration for his name!

    And here is Elsie’s Scripture.  We still need to find a frame for it  :).

    Today I will be featuring a few more of my favorites from Snail Mail Designs!  First off, let me tell you a little bit about the sweet sisters behind Snail Mail.  Britta and Beth come from a very crafty family, and have always loved creating since they were little.  They decided to start their creative endeavor in early 2012 and are now well known in the etsy community.  Snail Mail offers a wide selection of invitations, prints, and notecards (to name a few).  It is difficult to choose a design and color scheme because they are all so adorable!  Britta and Beth are also wonderful to work with in creating custom orders!

    Who doesn’t love receiving a piece of good old fashioned mail these days?  It’s such a treat!  Especially when it comes in pretty packaging and is wrapped up in twine.  Check out these adorable postcards.  And these!

    And I am in love with these memory verse cards.  I have a few on my nightstand to look at each morning and evening.  I also want to tape them up around the house as reminders throughout the day!  I think they would make the perfect gift for a new mama, bride to be, or for a birthday.  These patterned cards are printed on very sturdy paper, so they will last!

    The lovely ladies at Snail Mail are graciously giving away a $40.00 credit to their etsy shop!  The credit can be used toward invitations and printing, notecards, prints, or anything else; the opportunities are endless!
