Dear Steph Platt …

I am ecstatic to tell you are the new owner of an Apple Magic Mouse! ♥

Steph is a MadiMoo member, a fan of MadiLu Designs and left a comment on the blog post about the birthday prize. We participated in the Eye Candy workshop together and most important, she is a dear friend. (I swear random number generator is not fixed!) Recently, she skyrocketed to fame when her bird image was featured on the Pioneer Woman's blog. I'm pretty sure that makes me somewhat famous just by association :)

Congrats Steph and thanks for playing! I will be in touch. Keep checking back for more fun stuff!

KT's set and a few interesting tidbits …

It's been an interesting week! First, I'd like to show the set for KT Photography. I love her bright colors and the overall set makes me think of sunshine and fun. Much needed change of pace since it only seems to be overcast these days. Thanks Kendra :)

What else?? Today is the LAST day to enter for the Magic Mouse giveaway! Don't forget … will announce the winner tomorrow. Must enter on this post. I've given up caffeine. Boo! Not fun but it was time. Maybe not the best time to start as last week my husband was out of town. There were many endless days of kids stuck inside because of bad weather. Saturday was gorgeous and they headed outside. Within the first ten minutes, Lucy sent a swing right into Sam's lip. I had my first true "kid or camera" experience. Ever have one of those? Do share :) He was fine. I'd just forgotten how bloody the mouth can be.

Have a great week!

Girls Rule!

We're a divided household … three boys, three girls. I try to keep things balanced, but let's not kid ourselves … I love all things girly! I just finished this set for Christy of 2 Twirly Girls Photography. Christy had her logo designed by Tiffany at On The Spot Studio. Super cute logo girls! I helped her pull the rest of her look together with this marketing set. I love the bright colors!

Speaking of bright colors, I think everyone has spring fever. I finished another set this week that uses similar colors. I'll post next week KT :) I've also been working on Kristy's set (almost there Kristy!) and she's got a similar color palette as well. Everyone came with these requests … we may be seeing a trend!

Have a great weekend and don't forget to enter for the Magic Mouse!!

Birthday Magic!

I've got a birthday just around the corner and I'm celebrating by giving one of YOU a present! Through the years I've learned it's better to give than to receive (thanks Mom!) and I'm excited to give one of you an Apple Magic Mouse! I know … swoon! I don't even own one myself.

Posting a little bit of Lu's birthday magic last summer. Birthdays are much more magical at threeSo are double-chins.

Ava's Rule

Remember Ava and her family today. If you haven't read her story, take a few minutes to read Ava's Rule, especially if you have small children. Last August I created a book to remember the Superprincess' birthday. All proceeds went to Paradise Kids in Ava's memory. Kirsty shared her lovely creation with me today. It's beauty full. Thank you for sharing. Hugs to Sheye and her family today ♥

Happy Monday!

Sweet Rebeca just emailed me with a "Happy Monday". What a great way to start off the week!

Things started off a little "stinky" this morning. I just finished going through hundreds of pairs of shoes to send to charity. Our school did a shoe drive. Basically this organization picks up used shoes. They get paid per pound. The shoes are sent to less fortunate countries and the money made is used to purchase a water drilling rig. This particular round of shoes will help provide clean water in Haiti. Just wanted to share a bit of charity info this week. I left school and kind of felt like I worked at a bowling alley. Good cause … just kind of stinky.

Back to Rebeca's set. We worked on her logo and marketing pieces to help her brand her photography business. She wanted something that showcased more traditional portraiture and would cater to parents. I like her colors. I like her set! The card with the smaller white squares is to showcase images from different sessions. Great way to show off your different specialty areas!

One last note… start date for new marketing sets is now February 21. As I blogged before, prices are going up a tiny bit on March 1. If you're on the fence, let me know before March so you can still get your set at the current pricing.

Have a good one!
