Tova's Birth Announcements

Supplies were tight for our announcements, so we couldn't send them out to everyone. If you haven't seen it, here it is:

The process:
Kallie bought 12x12" sheets of paper and cut them to A4 size and then rounded the corners. She then had 8x10" photo sheets printed out with 20 images each (she needs to have another sheet made, so there's a chance that yours is still on its way) and used her Martha Stewart circle cutter on them. She burned two silk screens on her Gocco machine, one for green, one for pink. Then she printed them all - green, then pink. She wasn't patient enough, so most of the announcements have some ink on the back from being stacked. Oops! Then she used heavy duty tape to affix the photo. It was a great project!

Workshop

Kallie signed up for A Bryan Photo's first workshop in Birmingham at the end of April. She's been keeping up with Bryan (our wedding photographer) for a long time, hoping he'd do a workshop at some point. Now that he is, we're going to lengths to make it so Kallie can go!

It's April 20-22, the week before Kallie's first wedding job back since Tova started growing in the belly. So after Birmingham, it's straight to Jacksonville. And David will be staying in Lakeland to work while Kallie's mom comes with Kallie and Tova to babysit. We'll also have just moved into our house, so lots will be happening at the same time!

A couple of days after Kallie sent in her deposit to save a seat at the workshop, Bryan announced the opportunity to win a paid-in-full scholarship to the workshop. So the past three days, we've been drawing up ideas and filming a video for Kallie's entry. David edited it, and we really like how it turned out:

Fingers are definitely crossed, as this trip will zero out the business bank account and push back buying a new computer yet again (this keeps getting pushed back and back...editing thousands of large photos on a little laptop isn't ideal, though it works.) We'll let you know what happens!!

Love, d&k.
