New Birth Announcements

I have been wanting to design Birth Announcements for such a long time. In the past few years, almost all of my cousins have had babies. Of course they sent out birth announcements, and every time I get one in the mail I think to myself, why am I not designing announcements yet? I finally sat down and made time.

You can choose 4 x 6 for $1.80 per card or 5 x 7 for $1.90 per card. I even have the option of digital file for $12. With a digital file you get all the same great personal touches that Peach Prints offers, but you print them yourself. I send you a high quality digital file in jpeg or pdf format and you can send them to your favorite photo finisher (Walgreens, Walmart, Snapfish...).

If you don't want the hassle of printing them yourself, we send all our birth announcements to be printed at Miller's Professional Imaging. Miller's began in 1964 and has developed a reputation for having the highest quality product. This way you are assured to get a great quality announcement.

Take a look!

Technology can be so confusing!

Technology is confusing I don't get it! I can't catch on and I'm not sure why. I'm in my 20's, I just graduated from college with a degree in television post-production and motion graphics. I'm great with computers and computer programs. I even worked for Harpo Studios, as in The Oprah Show. But when it comes to the Internet and all this social networking I'm lost.

I started Peach Prints and invitations company about a year ago to make some extra money during my last year of college. I found out I love to design invitations so I decided to try and make it a business. Everyone kept telling me I needed a blog. So I started this blog, which turned out to be a lot of fun. But now I have to promote this blog along with my company. My friends tell me join Twitter, that sounds easy enough, but what would I tweet about? And who would follow me? My friends also tell me to start a facebook page. I have a facebook page; I thought it was to connect with friends. I guess I will figure it out some day. Hopefully :)

Fort Building Fun!

How many of you made forts using couch pillows, kitchen chairs and old sheets as a kid? I know I did! There is something about forts as a kid that seemed so magical. Forts were fun to construct and more fun to deconstruct, usually by running through them.

Even though I think using ordinary objects found around the house, sparks great creativity and imagination. You must check out these toys designed for building forts.

I would imagine that Crazy Forts would be perfect for the child who likes toys like legos. Crazy Fort allows children to construct a tent using peg and stick style construction to create all types of fort designs.

Another great product would be Fortamajig Connectables by the Happy Kid Company. Fortamajig kids must use connecting fabric panels to create a fort.

So this weekend let the kids go wild give them permission to deconstruct the couch and construct a tent. Happy Tent Making!

Etsy is Awesome!

I discovered Etsy about 7 months ago. But I'm finding out I'm the last one to know about this wonderful market place for handmade goods. If you are one of few who have not discovered Etsy yet please check it out!

One cool features on Etsy is Etsy Treasury. Treasury is a place where members get to highlight some of their favorite things. Yesterday I got featured on a Treasury listing called "All Things Haunted"

Here is a picture of all the other cool things that are featured on Etsy Treasury with me.

The one item that I love on this treasury is The Great Pumpkin Dog Hat by Beantown Handmade

I'm such an animal lover and if I thought my new puppy would wear it I would snatch the hat up. Unfortunately he is a little bit of a spaz being he is only 5 months.
Ok, so I can't resist showing a picture of him.

He is just so CUTE!

It's Pinata Time!

One great thing about spring, and summer is that your parties can be outside. There is nothing I enjoy more then hanging out in my backyard drinking lemonade, eating great barbecue and seeing kids running around playing.

One great addition to any spring and summer party, is a Pinata. Pinata are great entertainment for kids and adults. Believe me, I have seen many adults jump in on the fun.

I grew up with my Mom making Pinatas for all of our family events. Over time it grew into a business. She now has been making Pinatas for almost 20 years.

Pinata Queen is the place to get your custom pinata made.

She can match a pinata to almost any party theme. She has made pinatas for Hollywood Producers to big corporate events to Magazine launch parties and many, many children's birthday parties.

Pinata Queen's Pinatas range from small 15 inch pinatas to Extra Large Pinatas standing 3 feet tall. If you are thinking about having a pinata for your next party, Doreen at Pinata Queen is the person to talk to. She is always ready to answer any question. Just drop her a line at
