Announcing Jackson Danny and My Return to the Studio

So officially, I started working again at the beginning of this month.  Luckily, it’s been a slow transition back with adjustments everyday to little man’s schedule.  So I thought it fitting to share Jackson’s birth announcement as my first post, as I step back into the studio and slowly get my workflow groove back (now with a baby attached).


I’m not sure how I managed to pull this off, but somewhere in-between breastfeeding, pumping and being very sleep deprived, I managed to design Jackson’s birth announcement, get them printed, AND mailed out within the first 3 weeks after he was born.  Here’s to multi-tasking like a Mother!  🙂


Here’s a look into how they turned out…

I really wanted family and friends to feel like they were holding him in their hands when they opened the card, so the announcement is true to his actual birth size, 20 inches long.

The backside included a quote by Maureen Hawkins:

“Before you were conceived I wanted you
Before you were born I loved you
Before you were here an hour I would die for you
This is the miracle of love.”
