modern black & white first birthday

 For my baby’s first birthday, we did a joint party with his cousin out in the country. The theme was BE WILD >> modern adventurers. It was simple black and white, with some greenery brought in through plants. We have a vintage high chair that I purchased for $3 at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I made a simple bunting with white chalk on black paper and then attached it with washi tape. I designed some signs and made wooden “poster-style” hangers. The big black “1” is hand drawn chalk on black handmade paper.

I thought you might like them too, so I made a FREE printable download. The tattoo paper comes with instructions on printing at home on your inkjet printer. Once you have them printed, just cut them out with scissors. The final printed product will be reversed, but once you apply the tattoos will appear correctly!

Hi friends! I’m getting in on #fridayintroductions so you can learn a little bit more about me.
This is a photo of me and #rubytheletterpress from 2011 – the year I started my design & letterpress business. Previously, I had been working as a designer for a health & beauty co in Atlanta. Since then, we moved back to my home of Lincoln, NE and have had two baby boys. Basically, I can hardly relate to the lady in this pic. //
This weeks question is, – – What’s something you’d like to improve on this year? My answer is probably similar to many other moms – – B A L A N C E – Wisdom from God on what to take on and what to leave out. I’m open to suggestions on achieving this!!! #byhisgrace
