work wednesday: mila rae’s first birthday.

with valentine’s day quickly approaching, we are happy to share miss mila’s first birthday party invitation! i (dee) just love the wizard of oz and used that as my inspiration for her somewhere over the rainbow party theme. i designed a flat, double-sided card full off happy hearts, rainbows, arrows and hand-drawn fonts. our friend ralph of pink bike ralph, screen printed them with the most beautiful shimmery gold metallic ink i have ever seen. i tied them all with rainbow or red ruby slipper ribbon and then mailed them in red envelopes which i hand addressed in metallic gold ink. i can’t wait to share her big day with you all!

boy oh boy.

…for those of you who haven’t heard we are growing yet again! chey is expecting a little boy this july!! thank you alison for capturing this moment with fiona and the baby bump!

baby bump.

my (chey’s) baby belly progression from announcing the pregnancy at 12 weeks to days before delivering at 39 weeks. i set up a tripod and snapped these photos in my living room every one to two weeks. looking back now, i miss my bump and am so happy i documented!

happy things.

happy baby!! as some of you know i (chey) gave birth to a healthy baby girl, fiona rae, on december 6, 2012. i promise to share some photos of my beautiful sweetie very soon! life has been a quite chaotic and i’m slowly catching up with my other love, loveleigh, once again! dee has been doing an absolutely incredible job holding down the fort while i get the hang of being a mom. thought i’d share a few of my favorite baby items so far and some things i hope to purchase or create soon…

{a} with just some mini canvases, plastic animal toys, paint and glitter you can have a bright and bold animal art wall in the nursery. think i might try this! diy instructions from veetje; {b} fiona absolutely loves swinging and listening to her ipod in her 4moms mamaroo, available at buy buy baby; {c} these aden + anais bamboo swaddles are so luxuriously soft and come in the best patterns; {d} i need to get a hold of this book, mom inc. as i try to balance work and family from home, available through chronicle books; {e} these colorful wall knobs would be the perfect solution to display her pretty dresses in her cozy nursery, by the land of nod; {f} i love the design and function of this lawn bottle drying rack, available at buy buy baby; {g} fiona’s storybooks fit perfectly in between these gold pig bookends, from cb2.

work wednesday: you are our sunshine.

it’s very sunny here today in philadelphia so we thought we’d share this set of sunny prints we designed for our good friend natasha’s baby’s room. she gave birth to a healthy baby boy a few weeks ago named grayson nicholas. these 16″ x 20″ full color prints now hang happily in white frames above his crib adding some bright pops of color to his room.

happy things.

announcing cheyenne’s pregnancy this week has babies on the brain for the both of us! this summer is full of friends’ baby showers and planning the nursery, so we’ve been busy searching for unique items and gifts. here are a few of our favorites that we think would be fun for any boy or girl…

{a} we adore frazier and wing’s endless variety of modern paper mobiles that fit any nursery theme; {b} add some air and whimsy to a colored wall with white cloud wall stickers, by 41 orchard; {c} this mountain peeks basket can be filled with clothes or toys for a decorative storage solution, by anthropologie; {d} this adorable hand printed organic owl onesie by sas and peril is perfect for any tot; {e} this stegosaurus pillow is the perfect prehistoric pal to a child’s bedding, by land of nod; {f} add a bit of sunshine to any nursery with this letterpress you are my sunshine print by raw art letterpress. {it is one of dee’s faves because her mom used to sing it to her when she was a little girl!}; {g} how fabulous is the noe crib from petit nest! graphic elements + chic crib = amazing!

new addition to loveleigh!
