Have a fabulous weekend + see you Monday!
For a year that has gone by so fast and has been filled with both up and downs, we can finally say,”Hello” to December. I have to admit that I’m having a hard time believing that we only have 31 more days until we welcome 2012 – unbelievable!
It is that time of year when family and friends ask us the dreaded question, “What do the kids want for Christmas?” Don’t get me wrong, it is awesome and such a blessing that we are surrounded by family and friends who love our kids just as much as we do and want to give them gifts for Christmas. So awesome! We are so blessed. As the kids get older, it gets harder to think of what to tell these gift-givers. Reflecting over the Thanksgiving weekend, we’ve realized something that we have always sort of known all a long – we have plenty. Surprisingly, we were able to figure what little things our children might need or might want and were able to share those with our family and friends.
If my kids are lacking anything, it would be time. Between school, homework, practices, games over the weekend, recitals, there isn’t much room for special time with Mom or Dad. So this Christmas, I am going to give my children each the gift of time. No, not the kind that is green and grows in your garden and makes your food taste extra delicious. But a special Date with Mom, just the two of us. Just thinking about it makes me so excited and happy that I know that they will love it too.
So how do you give the gift of ‘Time’? A little while ago, I purchased a personal letterpress machine that is currently gathering dust in my office. So I thought, what better way to give it a spin than now. I plan on designing a ticket to present to each of the kids on Christmas day. It will entitle them to one special date with Mom. Dinner and a movie, a sporting event, a concert, a play, the ballet, high tea – they get to pick.
I can’t wait to get started on designing their tickets. I can’t wait to give them their gift. I can’t wait to spend special one-on-one time with them and just be with them and see what awesome people they are growing up to be!
Here are a few super inspiring ticket-style invitations.

Remember these? Well, they are now available in 3 different color ways – Surprise, Modern Girl, and Modern Boy, in the Designer Digitals Store.

Happy Saturday and Hello lazy weekend! Not only did we get to sleep in this morning, we get an extra hour tomorrow – Fall Back. We have a bunch of exciting things happening. Soccer games for the boys tomorrow, basketball for the biggest boy, photos with Amy B. and my parents are coming home from an almost month long trip to the Philippines. I don’t know who is more excited about their return – the kids, me, or them!
Dropping today at the Designer Digitals Store is the second installment of the Essential Tape Series.

I hope that your weekend is awesome!
Last night, as I was driving home from my son’s soccer practice, I passed by a house that was very festive. No, they did not have a giant inflatable pumpkin, or even a huge inflatable turkey. They had Christmas lights! Nicely strung, green and red mix with icicle lights, too!
After I got over the craziness of it, it dawned on me – the year is almost over! November is almost here, soon after we will be celebrating Christmas and then the new year.
And that realization turned into this:
The new 2012 CD Calendar.
Which will be available soon at Designer Digitals! These make wonderful hand-made gifts for relatives, friends and teachers. Who doesn’t love hand-made gifts? I’m actually thinking about doing more of that this Holiday season. Do you have any creative hand-made gift ideas, I would love to hear about them!
