Give Thanks
It's easy to get caught up in to-do lists and the busyness of this time of year.
I find myself thinking constantly of the million things I want to get done and the deadlines I have set for myself...
Family visits, baby arrives, and Christmas.
I have my house to-do list, nursery to-do list and baby to-do list.
We have entered the season of thanksgiving...
(though every season we should be giving thanks!)
I want to focus on the good, the positive, and turn anxiousness and fear into 
excitement and have faith.
The never ending kicks and rolls of this little guy and the exciting times that are to be had. 
I know these moments won't last forever and I want to savor them. 
It's far too easy to get buried under the lists and before you know it time will have passed. 
Be present and be grateful. 
Give thanks for each second, minute and hour in your day!

Baby Shower!
I hope you all are having a wonderful week!
We returned bright and early Monday morning from spending the weekend in California. 
Visiting with family and celebrating our little guy!
The weather was beautiful and it was so much fun catching up and spending quality time with everyone.
It was such a special time with family and friends and I continue to feel blessed by all of the excitement and support as we prepare for the arrival of our baby!
It's amazing how fast the time has gone!!!
{how cute is the baby pumpkin!?}
Have a great week!

Happy Friday!
I hope you all have had a wonderful week!
The holidays and Christmas are already on my mind.
I said it last year, and the year before that...
and I'm saying it one more time!!
I WILL be organized this year and get my shopping done early!!!
Partly because I really do enjoy it and partly because I have a feeling with a newborn at the beginning of December...there won't be much time for shopping or making gifts. 
So with the holidays on my mind, I wanted to share two new cards!
All new card designs are on the website. 
So click the link at the top of the page to go shopping at get some Christmas cards early!
Have a great weekend!

It's October which means it is that time of year to choose another non-profit organization!
It's been great looking back over the list of non-profits we have been able to donate to through Lindsay P Designs.
Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot, I think any amount of giving can make a difference.
With the support of you wonderful customers, we have been able to donate to the following organizations so far...
and now through the end of December...
I am sure many of us have seen these collection boxes in local businesses 
throughout your town. 
Through this non-profit organization, toys are collected at various locations from 
October through December. 
The toys are then sorted by age and gender and on Christmas (or around that time), these toys are given to needy children throughout the community. 
10% of the profit from every sale will be donated to this organization.
The monetary donation will go towards their mission of providing toys to the less fortunate. 
Amongst the chaos of this time of year, take the time to give!
Have a wonderful week!!

Finally Back!
It's been over a month since my last post and I am so happy to get back!
A lot has happened since then...
we have said goodbye to our first home and town...
And have said hello to our new home!
We are finally getting settled but still strive to get our "routine" back.
I think this is good practice for when our sweet little boy arrives in about two months and our lives are rocked again!
It is all part of change and this new adventure of ours and we are so thankful for it.
I've been trying to make our new house feel like home (without breaking the bank!) and slowly but surely it is. It's a work in progress and one that is oh so fun!
Last weekend I was blessed to have been given a beautiful shower by sisters who completely outdid themselves. 
So many special touches I can't help but share!
 This little guy (who is growing and growing and kicking like crazy!!!) is already SO loved...
It just amazes me!
Four new card designs are on the website for Fall and Christmas designs are coming soon...
So stay tuned!
Can you believe it's already that time of year!
The leaves are changing and the cold briskness is definitely in the air. 
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
