Holiday Cards

December 12th, 2012 @ 5:22 am by Tiffany

Need Christmas cards? Or postcards to save on postage? I’d love to help you create them using your favorite family picture or highlight the past year with a collage. Options are endless!

Lets Party!

September 22nd, 2010 @ 2:00 am by Tiffany

Whether you are 5 or 30…there is always a need to invite your friends to celebrate another great year! Perhaps you are celebrating the pending arrival with a baby shower to prepare for the new family member…and many great birthdays to follow! regardless, invite with style and ease…let me take care of the work of designing and printing them so all you have to do is address, stamp and put in your mail box!

These invites were designed as postcards making for easy and more affordable mailing. 4×6 is the largest postcard you can send at the $0.28 rate. Plus you don’t need the extra expense of envelopes…enjoy!

for all of life’s moments

For all of life’s moments that you’d like your family and friends to be a part of, send out a quick postcard! These baptism invites also incorporated all the fun activities planned for the 4th of july weekend with a timeline…

Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th! Been super busy lately with lots of projects so be sure to stay tuned! Sorry for a short blog today…need to get some things done around the house so we can enjoy the beautiful day outside!

Monday? Already?

February 8th, 2010 @ 5:20 am by Tiffany

This past weekend was tons of fun…which was much needed after a super busy week! I decided to take Friday off due to not much sleep from a terrible migrane which resulted in not getting ANYTHING done to prepare for Bry’s birthday party the night before. I baked some delicous “cookie dough” cupcakes and frosted them with chocolate and vanilla to make my own checkered “flag” for Bry’s 29th birthday. Kevin Harvick is his favorite driver and his number is 29 so it only seemed appropriate…especially with Dayona right around the corner…next weekend actually…I’m thinking I’m not going to get much attention this Valentines day LOL

Saturday we did some running around, took the dogs on a walk and I spent some much needed time with the BFF, Ashley. I hadn’t seen her since Christmas! It may have been a disastrous night…with my new waterproof camera “biffing” it on the cement and her scraf going up in flames but as usual, we still had a blast! Now, to see if I can get my camera fixed, ugh.

Of course Sunday brought the superbowl…Geaux Saints! We took the dogs on another walk (this time with it snowing), cleaned the house, cooked up a fiesta, visited the neighbor’s for one of the cutest little ladies’ birthday party (check out the invite!) and then back to our house to watch the superbowl on our 50 inches of fun (ps: after 3 years, we’ve finally paid that off!). We had a nice and quiet superbowl this year…just me, the hubby and wifey #2 (aka Ashley).

And here it is almost Monday…not ready for that but have lots to catch up on at work! Oh yes, tomorrow would be the most wonderful mother’s in the world birthday (did that make any sense LOL)…HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! I’m so blessed to have such an awesome family…even if they do eat candles…hee hee (who ‘dat be, dad?)!

Ready for the new year!

December 29th, 2009 @ 4:22 am by Tiffany

Can’t really say that 2009 was all that bad but it definetly could’ve been better towards the end there…here’s to good luck in 2010! My “SISTA” Jolene says that 10 is her lucky number and 11 is mine so the next 2 years should be good…we hope anyway!

A dear friend of mine, Sara, is a bride indeed! Her big day is approaching and all the stress is starting to hit home. And on top of it all, her daughter is turning 8 and has a fun birthday party planned but no invites to send out to guest so, Sara asked me to fix up some flyers…

Mom kept saying that all she wanted for Christmas was a job and she got just that! She started today! Hope it works out well for her. I on the other hand, did not go to work today; I spent the day taking down Christmas stuff and doing those things around the house that I have put off for months. The pic to the left would be the top of my drawing table…I haven’t seen that in months! It’s been a dumping zone!

Now, I best get to work on the invites for Sara and Jeremy! Stay tuned for updates on them! They’ll really make you want spring to come with the pretty daffodils on them!

It’s the Holiday Season

December 7th, 2009 @ 6:02 am by Tiffany


Christmas is offically in the air at the Nickelson house! Luckily Bry got the lights up outside on Saturday because it SNOWED today!

All the white stuff floating in the air got me in the holiday spirit so I finished up my Christmas decorations and wrapped presents. Now to work on those holiday cards to send out! I really have no excuse, I’ve had them done since the week of Thanksgiving…just need to address, stamp and stick ‘em in the mail box!
 
 
 
BJ and Lexi sported their new coats to keep warm. I found them at Target for $2.50 each…what a bargain! We think BJ looks like Elmer Fud LOL

 


Yet again I haven’t kept up very well on my design projects blogging. Here are some wedding invites that a did back in October. The red, black and white color scheme is obviously in but boy, do they make some elegant invites! I worked with the mother of the bride, Renee to get these just right. These are the perfect example of invites with a personal touch! Not only do they have a personalized formal invite on the front, we added some galeic writing with translation on the back. Very unique!

I’m currently working on a cookbook for a family friend…can’t wait to share that project with you! Hopefully sending it off to print Wednesday with hopes of getting them done just in time for Christmas…cross your fingers! Time is running out for holiday cards too! Hurry and contact me!

August Update

August 10th, 2009 @ 2:54 pm by Tiffany

Well, I’ve already started off on the wrong track with my blogging! Since my last update I’ve been to Dallas, Fort Worth and back! Every year EDJE.com sends a few of us to the Ag Media Summit. This year we were chosen to put on some workshops. Erica and I teamed up for the Designing for the Web :: What Works Online and Amber and Shari did the Fresh Designs workshop. We were all a bit nervous because we weren’t sure if our focus was right on for the crowd attending but it seems we were right on. We have had a lot of good feed back and even some calls from new potential clients! All and all it was a great trip but I’m glad to be back and get to work after some refreshing networking.

My best friend since 5th grade, Ashley B., is visiting from Ohio….I haven’t seen her since December! We planned to go tubing in Eldora today but they have been declared a disaster area after some strong storms passed through Iowa. So we had a change of plans and are headed to Saylorville lake to rent a pontoon boat! Hopefully the sun will come out soon…I need to catch me some rays!

Other than that I spent a good majority of the day designing some announcements and invites. Here are the newest ones that I’ve completed. They are for a friend’s daughter’s first birthday! Check for more updates coming soon! In the mean time, I’ve updated my online portfolio, www.designtlf.carbonmade.com — check it out!
