Happy (almost) birthday Carson!

Our nephew Carson turns one at the end of May! I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since we first met him. My husband and I were blessed to have Chip, Anne, and Carson just down the street before they had to move to Atlanta last summer. We’ve gotten to see them a few times this past year but I feel like I get to sit down and have coffee with them every morning when I read my sister in law’s blog, licensed professional mom.

Anne asked me a few weeks ago to design a birthday invitation for Carson playing off the theme of our family’s last name Hogge. They were already planning on serving BBQ at the party so we created a fun and modern invitation with references to good ol’ southern pulled pork, licking your fingers good barbeque!

We printed these on double ply lettra to give an extra luxurious feel to the invitation and paired them with kraft brown envelopes. We also included lots of other little goodies in their package, including Carson’s wagon cards, and a VERY belated christmas present from Gage.

(non)Birthday party

Gage turns one in two weeks! Even though he’s almost an adult dog – weighing in at 70lbs! – he will always be our precious little puppy. We’ll be mailing out these postcards for his (non)birthday party next week and look forward to fun and merriment.

Christopher’s birthday

My nephew turned two this week! I pressed these cute dump truck cards to go with the new truck and car I found for his party tomorrow.

Although he’s only two and may not be writing notes any time soon, his parents can use these as thank -you’s for birthday gifts, or just as ‘Thinking of you’ cards. The color-by-number is a fun, interactive card that can be used in many ways. Christopher can color each one before his parents send them off (who doesn’t need more artwork for the fridge?) or he can leave it uncolored for his friends to color for themselves once they open the note.
