I’ve been so busy with my other freelance work, I haven’t really done too many custom invitations this past year. So when Davis’ first birthday came around, I took full advantage and created something really fun and what I hope is memorable. I knew I wanted to tie in his announcements to the party theme, so I decided on a First Trip Around the Sun theme.
I know that Davis may not remember any of the little details included in his party, much less the party itself, but when he’s older and looks back on photos, I hope he’ll see how special it was and how loved he was by everyone.
Here is an animated GIF so you can see what every image contained.
I still can’t believe this little guy is one already and that I have two boys. I can’t say I ever imagined my life with two boys, but now, I can’t imagine my life without my two boys. 💙
Blame it on the pandemic and its effect on losing track of time or the fact that I’m a mom of 2 now, but I just haven’t had much time to post on the blog this past year. Yes, you read that correctly, I am now a proud mom of 2 boys.
Meet Davis Jones McClamb…
Since this marks the 2nd year that we have had to be apart from family during the holidays due to the Covid variant, it was nice to know that we stayed close in the hearts of our family and friends.
A quote by Angela Schwindt: “While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.”
Wishing all you mamas out there a very special and Happy Mother’s Day!

Especially to all of you celebrating your 1st Mother’s Day. Discovering motherhood is hard enough in normal times, throw in a pandemic and you basically have serious bragging rights for the rest of your life. 😂
Making the most of our current situation and created a fun (and super appropriate) Mother’s Day quarantine style card for all the special mamas in Jackson Danny’s (and my) life.
Front: Wishing you Happy Mother’s Day from 6 feet away!
Inside: Looking forward to the days when we can hug and kiss each other again. xo
And to the little being that made me a mother… THANK YOU and I LOVE YOU.
Last week, our little man turned two, so we invited some family over to celebrate with a small backyard party.
Jackson is about all things transportation right now. So I thought it fitting to have a Planes, Trains and Automobiles themed birthday party.
I started with a digital invitation and let that set the look and feel of the party.
I thought it would be fun to incorporate one of those balloon arches as a backdrop, but with wanting to keep the budget real low this year, I decided to try my hand at creating one on my own. 120 hand pumped balloons later, here is how it turned out.
I’m used to creating my own banners and menu signs, but this was the first time I decided to do a DIY food station as well. One of Jackson’s favorite dishes is my spaghetti, so I decided to do a Pasta Station.
And of course no party, big or small, is complete without a dessert table spread.
Freshly baked homemade cookies and other sweet treats made up the dessert station.
A big thanks to my sister for, yet again, baking the delicious cupcakes!
The driveway was decorated with a little road and other sidewalk chalk creations so Jackson and the other little kids could drive around in his little car and motorcycle toys.
