  1. Best of 2010: Displaying Your Kids’ Artwork

    kidsart

    I recently posted some ideas about organizing and displaying your kids’ artwork…and just found another idea I want to share.  I think this one is great although it requires a bit more work and possible use of Photoshop.  However, if you do have a photo-printing option at home, you can choose to print out a contact sheet and frame that!  Find more information on the blog of Jen Grant Morris.

    This just in…Karen says that she uses Shutterfly Studio to organize and make special projects (i.e. creating collages) with her photos.  Easy to use and it’s free.  I love when readers write in their suggestions!  Thanks.

  5. Eynat Don Photography

    Eynat Don is the incredible photographer of the above photos.  I met her this past Spring when she invited me over for tea and a shoot of myself and my newborn baby boy.  I was thrilled because I didn’t have any professional photos of my other kids when they were infants…and I was already well aware of how those precious few months of infancy go by in a blink.

    Eynat’s studio is in her home and she works wonders there,  capturing spontaneous moments that are intimate and so real – you can almost relive them.  Isn’t that what good photos are all about?  She made me feel comfortable and I fell in love instantly with her warm and quirky personality.  She was 9 months pregnant then and climbing chairs and tables…anything for a good shot.

    By the time I got home from our session, I already had a beautifully designed postcard waiting for me in my inbox – a collage of the best photos from the morning!  Incredible photos.  Her post cards can be used for holiday greetings or just to share your moments with family and friends.  Eynat also designs beautiful photo books for families and special occasions.  A session with Eynat is perfect for family, babies, pregnancy and event photography.  Eynat also takes great business portraits.  A business portrait session ($75) was a great gift for my husband for Father’s Day and the results were superb.

    Professional photography is often an indulgence but Eynat’s prices are so reasonable and turn out time is rather quick.  A session costs only $200 and includes all of the photographs on a CD for you to keep.  This means that you can print any time and anywhere.   Mamapicks readers, when booking your session, you will receive four 8×10 OR five 5×7 complimentary prints!  You can check out Eynat Don Photography or contact her directly here.

  8. Party Signs

    If you have had an outdoor party this summer, you must have sent the husband to write a sign of some sorts (party this way, bathroom, do not enter…that sort of thing).  Well, there is always a blog out there with some brilliant creative type who has done just that… only made it pretty.  Then, there are those blessed creative types who offer it to normal people for free!  Draw! Pilgrim is a beautiful design blog where you can find all the printable signs you may need for your next party  and more.

  9. Dads?

    Hello?  Are there any dads reading this blog?  Well, most moms I spoke to were a little disappointed with their Mother’s Day tributes.  It’s actually very simple.  All we want is words of love and appreciation…and some time away from it all.  If you screwed up, perhaps the above necklace will do the trick.  I think it’s pretty unique, no?

  14. Is your baby keeping you up at night?

    So is mine.  A good friend’s words help me keep it all in perspective.  Her motto is now my own:  My baby is doing what he is supposed to be doing. And thank goodness for that.
