Since I am a little wild about my photo wall of Milt, I ordered a special birthday hat from Amazon for him to wear for the occasion, so we could eventually hang a picture of him. Our goldendoodle tends to photograph well because he has had the two of us aiming a camera in his face since birth, and with the enticement of treats, he pulls through just fine.
|Getting a little adjustment from his Momma|
|Goofy for the camera|
|Our ultimate choice despite Milt looking a little on the serious side|
Once we had the picture, we were good to go. Lily, with stamps in tow, came over Monday morning, and we cranked 22 invites out! I'm a little bit backwards at arts and crafts, but Lily more than made up for it.
|Working away - she brought tulips too!|
Taaa daaa! Here is the finished product.
Lily does the most beautiful work! She even made Milt a birthday banner; I helped with that one too, but I am more the brute strength, and Lily adds the finesse!
|This banner is perfect because I will hang it on all three of our birthdays!|

She specializes in cards of all sorts: birthday, Christmas, Valentine's Day, bridal shower, baby shower, wedding invitations. I can tell you from first-hand experience too that her prices are much more than fair! If you live in the Dallas area, she plans to start Stamp Party Nights a few times a month where you pay a set fee, snacks included, and make an assortment of items: thank you cards, Mother's Day cards, etc. Let me know if you would like to join; it would be fun to get a little group together. I am a firm believer that stationery makes the perfect gift!
I will keep all of you you posted on the Milton birthday plans (11 days and counting!); I have been running around like crazy to get everything done ahead of time rather than be hectic on the day of the party. Whoever knew I would find myself at the age of 27 throwing a dog birthday bash?! Surprise, surprise - I am actually quite content with my life...!
