Hello folks! If you've stopped in to check on the latest happenings of Cabbages and Kings you need to pop over here:

This is my new blog, and the reason for the switch is explained there! Hope to see you around :)

Good Excuse

So why haven't I blogged in a month?
For a very good, very growing reason.

Baby number two decided to let us know of its existence, coming as a complete surprise, just after Christmas! Unlike my son, this pregnancy has been absolutely plagued with sickness morning, noon, and night. I find it very hard to exist everyday, let alone blog.

But as the first trimester nears it's end, I am hoping that so too will the sickness. And then I promise to be a better blogger.

And also, YAY! Shocked we were, but we are also super super super excited and feeling very blessed right now.

When I go to a baby shower I always make it a point to buy something off the person's registry and something special from me to that person. The gift varies from person to person, but in the future I think I've my go-to gift for all mom's to be:

a handmade one of a kind beastie/dragon that is totally baby friendly

(my current personal favorite)

If you think this seems like an impractical gift, sure it's not the extra bobby cover the mom-to-be was asking for, or one of 4 different sheet sets she wanted either. But it is something soft and snuggly with lots of different textures and patterns for that new bundle of joy to look at. I have a custom made flannel puppy dog and my son has hugged that little guy since he was about 2months old! You can find these dragons and more over at Pine Hill Forest.
(scroll through her sold olders for other beauties that other lucky people have already snatched up!)

So I meant for this to be posted last week, but that is what you get when you combine an active 11month old with a sick mom. Anyway, better late than never!

Anyway I am starting new in the card shop for 2012.

This has been something I've wanted to do for a little over a year now. I love invitations, and decided it was time to offer them along with my save the dates, calendars, and everyday greeting cards.

What do you think?
At first the Caroline Collection was my favorite, but now I think the Samantha Collection has taken over first place as my personal favorite :-)

Save That Date

As promised, here are some photos of some of my new work for the card shop!

I decided I wanted to get more into the wedding swing of things, and started with these save the dates.

I love how they turned out, and hope to do more very soon. Do you have a favorite? I keep going back on forth on which is my favorite, but I think if I had to choose I would say the woodsy floral cards. :-)

Sorry I've been absent for so long! Things have been crazy, but slowly we are getting back to normal. I'll be getting back into the swing of things around here, with new work being posted tomorrow!

Sneak Peak

Want a sneak peak of something new for the shop starting in January?
I would love to list them now, but I have a few minor details to work out yet. I've also decided not to list any work until after the holidays in general because I'm just enjoying time with my family, especially my sweet little WALKING baby boy.

He took his first steps today!
Best early Christmas present ever!

Now back to that sneak peak:

What do you think!?
Colors will be customizable, so that they will match any room :)
