I'll post photos of the after if I actually finish it in time.
If you're looking for a tutu for your little one (or big one) let me know. I haven't had a lot of success with selling these so I mostly stopped making them. But if anyone wants one I'll make a special listing in my shop for you! :) http://sentimentaljourney.etsy.com

That said, one of my favorite ideas for a card happened when I learned a friend of mine was pregnant. I think this idea hit me in the shower, which is where a lot of my ideas for cards and writing happen. Apparently the shower is my "office" or at least my brainstorming place.
This card (although I have made several different versions of it) is by far my best seller at Sentimental Journey. I haven't changed it much, if at all, from its original version that I made for my friend 4 or 5 years ago. I've done versions of it with bare feet on grass, or on what looks like carpet, but the overall spirit of the card remains the same.
Every pregnant woman wants her friends to celebrate her news with her. This card accomplishes just that, with a touch of humor.
Do you celebrate your friends' happy news? I know I wanted friends to celebrate with me each time I was pregnant but I never received a card for any of my pregnancies. A card can say so much, with little effort, and make a friend or relative feel extraordinarily special.

I thought it would make such a nice gift for a mother to have her kids' names on a necklace like this. In fact, I bought one for my sister-in-law for Christmas last year!

I used the ladybug stamp as a sort of signature. My packaging held ladybugs crawling over it.
Then color them in with a Sharpie permanent marker...
And stamp my site address on the flap of the envelope.
I figure it's like the major department stores that remodel every few years. You have to remodel to keep your brand fresh, right?
