I love to blog about life, but life gets in the way

I know - it's been forever since I last posted.

I had the end of the year Christmas cards and gifts rush. Then the holidays, then a sobering walk home on New Years Eve which left me with a lingering head cold. Then, since we hadn't yet celebrated Christmas with Adams family we had more of the holidays. Let's not forget the Rose Bowl (O - H ). THEN my husbands gall bladder decides to not work and we have to go get that removed. Have I mentioned that Bridal Show season has started?

And those "special moments"? (As in "Sara Paper . . . for life and it's special moments") Special moments seem to get forgotten under the pile of work. Balance, I've found, is a work in progress. So it's been a bit busy but I want to get back to reporting on YOUR special moments and in turn show you how I can help you with your social stationery.

Have I mentioned that Bridal Show season has started? You can find me at the WCSM Bridal Show on Sunday, January 31, 2010. It's being held at Romers in St. Henry from 1 - 3:30. A good time should be had by all (plus there will be lots of free cake).

I'll also be at the Greenville Bridal Expo at the Darke County Fair Grounds in Greenville. This event is being held on Sunday, February 28, 2010 from 12:30 - 4:00. (also free cake).

I do have some great things cooking lately. Forgive the lousy photography. However, bad photos are better than no photos at all.

Here are some calendars I did for Go Bucks Trucking. Each month features a photo of one of their impressive trucks. Next year I intend to have some templates and will be able to offer personalized calendars useing photos of YOUR family. You'll be able to buy personalized calendars for everyone you know.

This is a close up of the wire binding. We bought a machine this year and can now offer this service in house (and reasonably quick).

Happy New Year to Shannon and David. This is the front of their very fancy petal pocket invite. Shannon and David, who live in Chicago, rang in the new year in Ohio with a New Years Eve Wedding.

Best wishes to Jennifer Bornhorst and Scott Ranly, who will get married this weekend. Their invites are very elegant black, ivory and red. Jennifer was the total opposite of Bridezilla. I wonder if anyone who attends their wedding this weekend will tell me she snapped. I couldn't imagine it, she was so sweet.

More good wishes for Natalie and Luke who also get married this weekend. Natalie was also very non-bridezilla. Her original choice of a deeper plum pocket was back-ordered. So we waited, and waited for the pocket company to tell us they were in stock. Never happened. (well it did finally happen a couple weeks ago but that didn't really help Natalie's situation ) So Natalie gamely switched her colors up a little and I really love the result.

An inside look.

And finally a look at my Christmas.
My husband taught my brothers kids to make balloon animals (and hats). Now that's a gift that will last a lifetime.
Thanks to Topsy Turvy Toys in New Bremen for selling the kit to us.
We had a great time.
I guess "special moments" exist even in the middle of busy times.
