Before I started Banana Bear, I used to design photo birth announcements, birthday invitations, and holiday cards for Belly Bean Designs.  It's been a few years since I worked for that company, but I've dabbled in it on the side and have a few exclusive designs.   (I can either print these for you on photo paper or cardstock or you may purchase a flattened jpeg to print at home or with your favorite printer).

Here are a few of my favorite birth announcements.  I have some birthday designs made to match my tees too.  Look out for those coming to the blog soon!

This design is available in any color.  Pink or purple would be great for girls!

A girly version also available.

Love this sweet face!

Guess what...I'm moving...yes, again

Yes, you read that right.  I'm moving...again.  It's been just over a year since my last post (I need to blog more!) and we're fixin' to move again.  This time we're leaving our house in CT, which we had hoped to stay in for four years and we're headed even farther north to Maine.  Did I ever mention that I hate cold weather?

Despite not wanting to move, I am pretty excited about the change.  I don't particularly care for the part of CT that we're in, so it's not going to be hard to leave.  I'm looking forward to exploring the beautiful Maine coast and enjoying lots of lobstah while we're up there.

My sewing room in the current house is pretty large (21x21 feet) and I love it!  It has room for a small sofa with chaise lounge, TV, and a small play area.  It's really nice to be able to have someone hang out up here with me when I'm sewing.  I hate feeling closed off from everything.  I also have plenty of space to spread out.

My new sewing room is a bit smaller.  I'm not sure of the exact dimensions, but it's probably something like 12x12.  I won't have space for a little playroom or the sofa, but it is right off of the great room, so  I'll still be able to be a part of the family.

New new room is a soft, bright yellow and there's beadboard on the bottom half of the walls.  Yellow isn't really my color, but it's pretty enough and I really have painting so I'll probably leave it.  There are other rooms that have paint that has to go.  I've been looking for a really cool, crafty quote or phrase to put on the main wall across from the door.  If anyone has a suggestion, please let me know!
