MOPS Publicity Templates

One of the things I've committed to doing this fall is heading up the Publicity Team for MOPS at our church. I'm excited and humbled that I was asked to fill this roll and am THRILLED to see what God is going to do this next year at MOPS.  

Now as you may (or may not) remember, last year I was entrusted with the responsibility to publish and print our quarterly MOPS Newsletter. I went through the long and sometimes tedious task of trying to find an updated, 21st century looking Newsletter template.  All of my searching was to no avail.  Nothing. Nada.

So I made my own.  Click here to check out the MOPS Newsletter Template that I created.

This year I found myself in a similar situation when I wanted to create a few promotional items for MOPS.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to find anything that I was crazy about so once again, I designed my own.

And here's where it gets fun.  After putting in the work to check Dr. Google (multiple days in a row) and design business cards and posters for our MOPS team I figured, why not share?

So sharing is exactly what I'm doing!

If you (or anyone you know) is interested in a MOPS Business Card Template, a MOPS Poster Template or a MOPS Logo in White (and purple) please, please, please don't hesitate to email me and ask.  Email me at

MOPS Poster - to print as 8.5x11

And last, if you're from the Scottsdale/Phoenix area - you MUST check out MOPS.  I'd love to have you at my table (the yellow table).  For more information go to


Happy {3rd} Birthday, Nora!

Jul 19, 2012

July 13th marked the THIRD Birthday of our sweet as can be Nora Marie. 

It really does seem like just the other day I was sitting down to write Nora's birth story to share with ya'll.  

In just three short years we've seen our little girl go from this... 
to this...

From July 13, 2009 to now, Nora has brought oh so many smiles to each one of our faces. 

This next year, our prayer for Nora is that God would use her great passion, strength and energy to accomplish great things and that ultimately she would learn to love God and serve others, just as Christ Jesus did for all of us!  


In Our Home | Summer {so far}

Jul 15, 2012

Why hello devoted blog readers!  Did you think I forgot you?

Promise I didn't.  Really.

And to reward you for your devotion (I hope you read that as if I was saying it with a large amount of sarcasm), I thought it was time to bring back another edition of "In Our Home."

You ready?  Here we go.

1) & 2) - We are love, love, lovin' our goodies from our most recent Kids Craft Exchange.  This meeting's theme was Busy Bags. I made the Easy Felt Fishing Kit and one of the other fun busy bags was a Popsicle Color Match.

3) & 4) - Nora has been enrolled in swimming lessons since the middle of May and is becoming quite the little swimmer.  She's been lucky to have some girlfriends along for the ride.  Colette (on the right with Nora) and Lola have been showing off their swimming schools 2x/week too!

To see Nora showing off her diving skills, Click HERE.

1), 2), 3) & 4) - Early last Saturday morning (and by early I mean.... EARLY.... like 3:30 am early), while ya'll were probably still sound asleep, our little family ventured out for a family photo shoot.  Because the sun rises so early, and our planned backdrop was hot air balloons (which take off really early), we had very little choice in what time we met our photographers, Session Nine Photography.

Luckily the shoot turned out amazing (well - we think so anyway).  So far we've been given 2 pictures to serve as a sneak peek of the shoot (pictures 3 and 4).  We can't wait to share the rest of the photos when Jess and Jason have them ready for us!

Happy 4th of July (12 days late)!!!!!

Our 4th of July was filled with lots of family time (even a trip to Ikea - #3) and a BBQ and swimming with our sweet friends, the Cherricks.

We're so very thankful with each passing year of the great freedom that we have in this country!

And last but not least....

Nora turned THREE!!!

1) We put together a special surprise for Nora when she woke up.  How did she respond?  Let's just say that she wasn't nearly as excited about it as her mommy was ;)

2) & 3) To celebrate Nora, we met a handful of her little friends at one of her favorite places, AZ Airtime.  Nora got to do what she loves to do most - jump, run, laugh, be with friends and eat sweets.

4) After waking up from her nap, Nora was greeted with a handful of gifts AND her big birthday gift, a little kitchen!

More to come about Ms. Nora's 3rd Birthday in another post later this week.
