Finnegan's 3rd Birthday - Ahoy Matey!

Finnegan was all about pirates this year. I decided I was going to actually letterpress his invitations, since I am a printer and all.


I called my dear dear sweet wonderful friend Joslin and she made the most fantastic pirate ship cake that you've ever seen.






 It was fabulous. Everyone kept asking me if it was a real cake!


 Dread Pirate Finnegan couldn't wait to blow those candles out.


Everyone seemed to have a good time. It was so nice to see friends, some even stayed for the after-party (which ended with an impromptu naked dance from the birthday boy, as all good parties should.)

The morning after:

Kentucky Derby

Kevin and I are excited to finally watch the Kentucky derby this afternoon. We always look forward to making mint julips and relaxing on the couch. This year we will be using my Tally Ho coasters:

Stuffing Easter Eggs

Finnegan has his first official Easter egg hunt at Mother's Day Out tomorrow. I am so excited! This morning we practiced hunting for eggs. Now he is down for his nap and I am getting the eggs ready for tomorrow.
The letterpress bunny tags are available here.





All ready to go!

#etsysuccess symposium

I really loved the Etsy symposium yesterday. Each session was extremely informative, I felt like my brain was exploding with new knowledge! My first step towards bettering my shop was to redo my photos and create a more cohesive look for my brand, Pheasant Press.

Before:


Nice photos. But it didn't feel like everything jived together. I had several different backgrounds, so I decided to just use one background for everything. I spent hours (and hours) taking new photos and preparing them for my shop.

After:

Much better! Hopefully I am one step closer to creating a recognizable brand for myself.
