2013 Calendar in the house!!

 It's been a busy weekend in the Worleybird Studio.  I finally got around to designing and working on my 2013 desk calendar.  I stepped outside my comfort zone this time around.  Instead of looking for cute elements to use on my calendar, I decided to create my own.  I am currently obsessed with doodling.  So, I thought I would put my doodle time to good use and doodle some cute designs for my new calendar.  It was so much fun to work on and I think it turned out pretty well considering this is my first attempt at a 100% original design.  What do you think?

I have just listed these in my Etsy Shop.  I hope y'all love them as much as I do!  I feel like a proud Mom.

Party Hearty!

My family really knows how to have a good time.  Next up on the party list is a Housewarming for my nephew and his wife who have just bought their first home.  So exciting!  How I wish we lived closer so we could join in the fun.  Sadly, we won't be able to make the 2500 mile trip.   However, I do get the honor of designing the party invitations so I thought I'd show them off.  Of course, I couldn't stop with just invitations - I also included some matching envelope wraps and address cards. Congratulations Chris & Rachel!

Pretty & Punctuated

When I first saw the One Fine Day kit by Fayette Designs at the Pickleberry Pop store, I knew I had to use it on a project. I used some of the images and papers and combined them with some pretty punctuation. These colors are some of my favorites and seem to be my "go to" colors - they make me happy! 

Just listed in my Etsy shop!

Aren't they fun?  I also made a set of flat note cards.  I'm finding all sorts of uses for them.  They make great recipe cards and journal cards for my scrapbooks.  I even stuck one to my computer to write my endless list of things to do - I'll just pop it in my bag when I head out and have a cute reminder so I don't forget what I went out for!

Dino-Mite Birthday!

My sweet little grand-nephew is turning 2 soon and my niece asked me to make up some invitations for his party.  She is using a fun dinosaur theme so I went on the hunt for some cute digital clip art to use.  There is just so much to choose from on the web - I had a hard time narrowing down my selections.  I finally decided on these little guys.  I paired them with some birthday elements by Julia Makotinsky and got busy on my design.  I made up some cute invitations and thank you notes.  And then while I was at it we decided that little Jack really needed a banner to celebrate his big day, so that was included also.  Here are the goods -

I think they turned out really nicely.  My niece is going to take a photo of the banner at the party - I didn't want to put it all together since I have to ship it off to her on the east coast.  You'll have to wait for that photo!  Until then - big birthday hugs to our little Jackosaurus!

Soup Sunday

At our house Sunday is "Soup Sunday" -- especially during the winter months when it's cold outside and there are football games on the TV.  So, I try out new soup recipes each week.  Today I wanted something easy because my Denver Broncos were playing and I didn't want to miss a thing.  GO TEBOW!!  BRONCOS WIN!!!  On the menu today was Creamy Tortellini Soup.  It fit the bill all the way around - easy, quick to prepare and can I just say - YUMMY!!!  The only modification I made was to add 3 links of italian sausage that I made into little balls and browned before adding to the pot along with the tortellini.  (My family of men don't think it's a meal unless meat is included - otherwise it is called an appetizer!)  The best part about this recipe is that it is prepared in the crock pot for a truly fuss-free Soup Sunday.  Try it out - you'll love it.
