Pretty Packaging - DIY Stamps and Paper Bags

I was able to make these pretty packages using...
THIS mangled eraser stamp:

I made it myself :-/ 

It was fun and easy to make, though it probably would have been a whole lot easier had I used an exacto knife as suggested in the DIY tutorials I found (like this one, here). No, I didn't have an exacto knife on hand so I used a box cutter instead. 
Although my stamp worked, I will not be doing that again. I'm lucky I still have all my fingers. 

 Aside from my wonky attempts at stamp making, I also discovered another inexpensive disk-wrapping tool: paper bags. Most are from recycled paper and perfectly fit for disks. Add a little ribbon and voila!

I've become quite inspired by packaging ideas. Have you ever been creative when wrapping something? I can't wait to try more ideas... :)

Baby! - Hudson James

I am in love with this adorable family!
I met Nick & Mary when I photographed their beautiful wedding
last year and was happy to take pics of their new little guy, who is such a sweetheart!

It's pretty amazing when you meet people who are on track in every way.. the kind of people who have such a bright outlook that they themselves glow. It's contagious! 

I'm looking forward to watching from the sidelines as they continue to bloom :) 

It's just the beginning for lil' Hudson!

 Thank you Nick, Mary, Hudson and Jake!

Baby! - Felicity Angelique

This little girl was a teeny lil' sweetie! She weighed 5 pounds, 10 ounces when she was born and seemed so delicate when I held her.. so precious! 

We captured her at seven days new and she was just lovely :)
