QUESO album

I worked on a special project for Brooke Schwab last week. Her and her husband created this cool looking photo booth that you can rent for weddings and other events. They call it QUESO - you can check out their website to learn more.

They decided to get a booth at the WPPI this year that would showcase their new business. Brooke asked me to create an album to show off photos from the booth, something that was modern and fun. The book was so much fun to design, and I was really happy with the way it turned out. Hopefully the booth is a big success!

My Newest Nephew

Noah Andrew Swartzentruber
Born January 12, 3:03 am
7 pounds, 1 ounce

Since I was watching Jack while Sar and Gar were gone, I didn't get the visit Noah at the hospital. But I did get to be there for his homecoming!

I'm in love :)

Baby Blessings Shower

Last Saturday I hosted a baby blessings shower for my sister's second-born...just in time! Sarah called me at 1:00 am on Monday so I could watch Jack while they went to the hospital. She got to the hospital at 2:15 am, and Noah was born at 3:30 am. So quick there was no time for an epidural. I'm so proud of my big sis!

Here some shots from the shower. I sent out "Notes for Noah" cards with the invite so everyone could write a message to Noah. We put them all in a little album, next to the favors.

The food!

My favorite were the chocolate covered marshmallows and pretzels.

Cupcake and food tags:

My three wonderful sisters and first born nephew. I just love my family!

Pictures of my newest nephew coming up next!

Back in the Swing of Things

After the holidays and a crazy first couple weeks, I'm finally jumping in to 2010. I completed my first album of the year last night. And I have to say I really, really love it :) The couple hand made a lot of the wedding details, even a custom cake topper. Love the aqua and red color scheme. Everything about this wedding makes me smile!

Happy Client

Oh, it's been so long since I posted. But there's no better way to kick off the new year than with some positive feedback! I was so excited to hear my client Amy got her wedding album and parent album on December 23. She wrote:

"Hi Katie! I got the albums yesterday and they look amazing! Spencer and I and our family love them! They were the perfect Christmas present! Thank you so much and have a Merry Christmas!"

Hopefully there will be a lot more happy clients in 2010! Here's to a new year!
