——creativity never goes out of style——

We are having a……



Ahhhh the last day of a restful long weekend!! Our weekend was filled with camping, relaxing and spending time with great friends that came in from out of town. Friday night was definitely my highlight though! When we decided that we were going to find out the gender of our baby I knew I wanted to announce it in a fun way. Come on… it’s me! I can always find an excuse for a craft, a diy or a photo shoot. I wanted to reveal it in a unique way so after much thought I decided on silly string! My first thought was a paint fight but I didn’t really want to sacrifice any clothes…haha so we bought two cans in the appropriate color and then came the crafting. I wrapped the silly string cans in neutral colored scrapbook paper with a lace ribbon so you wouldn’t be able to see the color inside. Then I grabbed my trusty camera and chalkboard and away we went. I wanted the setting to be a green background that was full of life, so we just randomly asked a farmer down the road if we could sneak onto his property! I knew exactly the kinds of pictures I wanted so all I needed was someone who liked to take pictures. My dad has always loved photography so he happily volunteered! It made it that much more special to us and he was the first to find out too!

We are so happy with how the pictures turned out, and the best part is that now we have pictures to add to our new family photo collection! Hope you like it! Happy Victoria Day!

There never has been, nor will there ever be, anything quite so special as the love between a mother and a son. – Unknown
