A year of photobooth

I must admit that a year ago when we began the monthly trips to photobooth that I wasn’t so sure if I’d be able to keep up with the idea…I mean, I am just a little busy these days. Here we are a year later and this evening I proudly compiled the photobooth pictures so […]

Christine Cerniglia - These are really cute, Amanda. What a great idea! You should make some sort of calendar project out of all of them :)

Mandy Bee - I’m finally getting around to catching up on my Google Reader feeds… (yikes!)

This was such a great idea and I’m so glad to see that you kept up with it all year! The end result really is priceless! You get to see how Jaylen’s hair grew! haha

Anabela do Rosario - The cards are beautiful and so are your kids!! I always enjoy looking at Hope’s artwork. Looks like she’s getting better and better at it every year.
Merry Christmas and blessings to your family!

Eddie - Oh what a fun learning process. I give you till the end of January where you master it. I love version 2 of the cards, the gloves. And that first b&w of the kids is awesome. I hope you and your family have a merry Christmas and hope to see you soon.

Phyllis - I smell an ETSY shop. ;o) Lovely, lovely, lovely…

The ONLY thing that could possibly make it any better is if I were actually on your recipient list. ha! Happy holidays to you all!

Amanda Kern - Thanks guys. Yes, Eddie this is far from my last attempt at screen printing! :o)

And Phyllis…do I really need anything more to add to my to do list? I’ve been told by many that I could sell these…but ah, time…I’d much rather buy some of that. Do they sell that on etsy too? :o)

And of course if I don’t have your address…I’m taking orders for next year…email me your mailing address. :o)

Dennis S - Merry Christmas!

Those cards look so good you should consider starting a line or maybe selling the idea to Hallmark®.

And the Babies as beautiful as ever.

oorjas - Hi..

Really cute cards by cute kids…


I can’t deny it any longer…my baby is one. The time since Jaylen was born has passed entirely too fast. We continue to feel blessed with the fact that our little guy is doing quite well and has filled our family with more love than we imagined was possible. His birthday was a memorable milestone […]

Joe Saraceno - hi, love your book! I’m wondering if you can help me; I made a book with blurb but didn’t like the templates available in booksmart. If I create my own text and image layouts in photoshop, how do you import them into book form in booksmart?

Thank you,

Tanya - I can’t believe he is growing up so fast. As I had said a while back in a e-mail it just seemed like yesterday I was holding him as a newborn!. I sure wish I was healthier and in a better condition with the job situation etc that I could have been down there. I sure do miss them. I look at the pictures and hear their giggles and wish I was there. It makes me happy and sad. Hopefully things will turn around fast. Give them both hugs and kisses from me and Ashley and tell them that we love them and wish we could be there. Love you guys!

Lets be honest, with all that’s going on with the economy our schools could use as much help as possible. Though it may be tough for many to contribute financially to our local schools you all could be a small part of raising money for local schools. You may have noticed while doing your grocery […]
