"Your babies are in the mail"

I just mailed out these 60 little babies this morning! Here they are all bundled up, ready to be packaged and sent off to North Carolina.

I created this little bundled baby card, as a way to congratulate new parents on a new addition to the family, but a lovely customer of mine, Michelle, wanted to announce the arrival of her son at the end of March with these cards. What a great idea! And I'm so flattered that she chose my cards for such a momentous occasion ☺Inside the folded blanket will be a little print-out with all the info about the new baby boy. Thanks Michelle, I enjoyed making this order for you!

Teaching an old dog new tricks... My Microsoft photo editting and imaging software went all wonky on me yesterday and asking it to do something for me resulted in my computer shutting down - not good. This was the so-called updated version of the same program I've been using for the past 6 years, called PictureIt. It's always given me and my computer and my husband - bless his patience! - problems, but I was so comfortable with it that I've stuck it out. Well, now even the newer version has been discontinued, so I guess Microsoft realized it was a dud. So I'm now learning to get around Picasa, which I've heard so much about - excited to learn how it all works, although I mourn the loss of my friend, MS PictureIt (can you hear the leetle violins playing?).

Ok, gotta go. Time to make the donuts...
