Wonderful Wizard of Headers and Announcements!

I searched all over the internet for the perfect baby announcement. Wait, make that the perfect announcement that didn't cost more than a week's supply of diapers! I wasn't loving the cookie cutter photo announcement options at the usual photo sites. I took a tour around Et.sy and almost purchased some that were almost what I wanted when I remembered that there was plenty of talent right here in our own SMC backyard. Calliope from CreatingMotherhood! The wizard of awesome blog headers has mad photo skillz! I contacted her via her blog and asked if she would be willing to design my announcements and I was thrilled when she agreed (and think her talent is worth more than she charged). I told her that I was looking for something that used some of my favorite photos, had swoopy letters and was sort of Wiz.ard of O.zish. She whipped up some magic and Tah Dah they were perfect! I uploaded the file to a photo site and had them printed for less than a day's worth of diapers! My friends and family loved them and I love that I was able to support a fellow SMCer's art. If you're looking for some announcements or something similar drop her a note and see if she can help you out.

Oh, what a lovely announcement! And what a scrumptious boy! Cali rocks! She's so talented. I would have had her design my announcements, but I make my living as a graphic designer, so ...
