Screen Refresh

If you saw my original post on my Android home screens, the first image here will look familiar. I've gone with a custom wallpaper desk-like theme using transparent icons. I'm still happy with the main home screen, but I'm not really excited about any of the other screens. They're fun, but not great. So I've started working on updates. Since I finished updating screen 2, I thought I'd share. 

Here is the before. You can see that although the intent is to have things look like they're sitting on a desk, it's not very well accomplished.

So I changed it up. I put everything on shelves instead. Not only are shelves better looking than desk clutter in the real world, they're also better on my phone screen.

What do you think?

The invitations

Now that the wedding is over and I don't need to worry about any unexpected guests showing up, I can share the invitations I designed. I was really happy with how they turned out and got a lot of great feedback.

You might remember from our Save the Date cards that our reception was a game theme. So I designed the invitations to look like playing cards.


The main part of the invitation features the King and Queen of hearts. I found some text online that I liked and edited it a bit to fit our event. Here's what the main invitation final product looked like:

Since we also needed to include the addresses for the church, reception, and hotel, I made an Ace of hearts card, too. (Get it? 'A' for address?)

I also wanted to include a map since we'd have a lot of out of town guests. I know most people have a GPS these days, but it just seemed like a good idea. For the map, I saved a screenshot of the area in Google Maps, then traced over the lines I wanted in Photoshop Elemen…

Words

Mommy work.
Daddy work.
Ru work.

One of the most common refrains around here lately. That and

Mommy nap.
Daddy nap. 

Note, Ru doesn't nap.

Campfire 'n Smores

This was a last minute addition to my pile of homemade gifts. I saw this on a blog I read and knew I HAD to make them. I built a fire pit for our condo association this summer and my parents have a lot on a 5-star campground, so a made a set for each of us!


Here's a direct link to the post where she talks about making the ornaments. Note, I deviated slightly, though they're pretty close to what she did.
