Pigs, Pigs, and Baby Showers

There are little pigs and big pigs,
pigs with long snouts and pigs with short snouts,
pigs with ears that stand up and pigs with ears that flop down.
But all pigs are beautiful.

-All Pigs are Beautiful book by Dick King-Smith

My SIL LOVES pigs, so I have thrown some ideas together for her upcoming baby shower.  I am thinking gingham or polka dot silhouettes of blue pigs. Lots of various (navys and baby blue) fabrics, vintage and country fair feel.  As I am sure you can guess, the guest of honor-to-be is a boy!

Love the fabric garland, picnic baskets, and love this animal cracker display!

She adores children's books, so I would like to incorporate this hanging book idea near a bookshelf where guests can place their book gifts.

I am redoing a bookshelf for this purpose. It's primed and ready for paint. Here is the before. I will post the after as soon as I finish it. The amazing Amanda from Our Humbled A{Bowe}d  has shared some tips with me to help me get started. She is an expert with colors and demo! Wait till you see the print Amanda sells in her Etsy shop that matches the color theme perfectly!

Demo started right here with these plastic dividers!

Stay tuned... and would love your opinions and ideas!

Why I love Shutterfly...

Shutterfly is no doubt my go to store when I need photo cards, calendars, and photobooks made. I love giving photobooks as gifts to family members. You would not believe how many compliments I have received on my photobook gifts.

Every Christmas I make photo calendars for our families. It's become such a hit that this is the only gift on my brother and parents' Christmas lists! We unknowingly started a new family tradition that is now considered a must by our families!  I love it because it cuts down on the amount of Christmas shopping I have to do!
I have to be honest, I have been thinking about our Christmas card since we returned from our beach vacation this summer. Shutterfly has so many options that it's hard to narrow down my favorites. Seriously, I'm overwhelmed here. Here are my top three. I am really loving the Top 10 Moments of 2010 because it is so whimsical and colorful (mostly because it gets me out of having to write a family Christmas letter!).

Shutterfly also offers:

·         photo holiday  cards to  
·         Calendars to
·         new years cards to
·         personalized Christmas cards to

Bloggers get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly. Learn more:

Cupcakes and Cutlery Lockheart Inspiration Board Challenge!

Cupcakes and Cutlery and Lockheart have teamed up to create a very fun challenge. Create an event Inspiration Board based on this beautiful Caprice Lockheart purse. 

So here is my vision for a party inspired by the Caprice!

But then in the middle of the night, I realized I needed more Moroccan!  Ahhh...
but alas, it was too late to make changes. So here is the board I couldn't use...

Which one do you like better?

I even created an inspiration board for the outfit I would wear WITH
the Caprice purse to this fabulous party!

The judges will narrow the entries to 5 top choices. The grand prize winner will be announced Tuesday, November 9, 2010 and will be sent their very own 'Caprice,' which retails for approximately $465!

There are also MORE chances to win prizes by checking back on Monday, November 8th and commenting on the top inspiration boards. Visit here for more details and rules.
