More free goodies for ya!

This personalizable tag would be great as a gift tag with a simple hold punch and a ribbon or some raffia to tie it on with . Or laminate it and made a funky luggage tag!




These 2 can be shrunk to use as placecards or enlarged as notecards.

It's a HIT!

When Michael got Ezra a baseball tee for Christmas I honestly thought..hmmm... isn't he a little young for this thing. Well last night Ezra played with it for the first time and he LOVED it!

One happy bat wielding boy!---keep back at least 3 feet ;)
The swing...
The hit...
The celebration!!!

New digital freebies!

Just click on the image and copy to your computer then add your own photo with your photo editing software.


Ezra's Christmas faces...

Ezra wanted NOTHING to do with his presents Christmas morning. We tried to get him to open one and this is what happened.


We tried to put him on his new Buzz Lightyear 4-wheeler but he was NOT having it!

This is the look I got during his bath before church. It looks like he's thinking, "Hey lady, I'm naked here!"

By the time we got to Gommy and Papa's house he was much more amenable and happy about opening presents. Here he is giving some love to Uncle Weston.



Christmas at Nona's house was mayhem. There were tons of presents and lots of paper to throw around.

My favorite things...

Some of my favorite Christmas presents that we received this year:

My MIL got me this adorable purple and gold paw print scarf perfect for tailgating for LSU games and showing some school spirit. I simply asked Michael if he would model it for me for a photo but he took it to another level and brought out his inner male model :)




Michael got these really cool hunting gloves"


There are LED lights on the knuckles



And these velcro patches fold back to expose the trigger finger and thumb. I just thought they were WAY cool. I have no idea how practical they are though... hmmmm..




Purple and gold tiger print "jelly" watch! Geaux Tigers!



Michael's responce to these presents below, "This is the best Christmas EVER. Bourbon and bullets!"


I bought both Michael and Ezra these t-shirts. It's Han Solo cup and his Wookie Cookie (can be found on http://www.threadless.com/ )



My mom got Ezra this super cute little "doodle carry all". I love it b/c you can replace the color pencils with thin markers and it is easy to fit in a purse or backback to take to a restaurant or to church to keep our little guy busy.



Aren't these French flashcards just beautiful! I thought they would be great to use as a decorative border or art piece in a nursery. I just had to have them!





These timeless books are great b/c you can record yourself reading the story. Michael's dad made this one for Ezra.


Michael got me this saucier (spelling?) pot which we needed greatly. Several days ago, I decided to cook Boef Bourginone from Julia Child's cookbook and realized that if I continue cooking from her book I just MUST have one :)


Probably my most lusted after gift :) The Louis Vuitton Speedy 35! Thank you Michael!


Now these may look silly but they ROCK! I have wanted these Vibram 5 finger toe shoes for a long time but just didn't want to fork over the dough to get them. Michael's mom blessed me with them for Christmas and I can't wait to try them out at Mineral Wells State Park with some hiking and climbing. I wore them around the house today and they're great though getting used to having something b/w all your toes is a bit odd.

School freebies!

So my goal is to put up some digital freebies every week. I know I LOVE sites that offer fun digital goodies and since I figure now I've got a pretty large collection of digital kits why not design them myself and offer them to you guys we well! So I hope you guys enjoy these designs and if you use them let me know, I'll feature your project on my blog!

Fun School Bus:




For the sample version I used some of the sassy girls from my clinic as models :)


School Days cluster frame:
Ezra's actually baking cookies but I didn't have any pics of him reading or coloring.

New Look!

So today I decided to bite the bullet and revamp my Adopt Africa Design blog to look more like the new family blog and just make it more modern and less "primitive" if that makes sense. Click on the new button below to check it out!

This morning I created these freebies for you guys. The wreaths and frames are actually empty so you can add your own photos to them! Just click on the image to expand it and then save it to your computer. If you have photoshop or some other photo editing software you can add your own pics to them to personalize it! Enjoy!
