Halloween 2017

We decided to give a fun family treat this year for Halloween…a movie theatre gift card and a little candy, of course. This was the packaging with an over-the-top tag. This post also shows dozens of family and employee costumes.

My Life Back

I finally feel like I have my life back! Although there were many times I wanted to quit during the last six weeks, Friday was our last day, and I am now a certified hatha yoga teacher! Yay! I don’t plan to teach very often, but I learned a lot and appreciate better why my body loves this 26-2 hot yoga (also called the Bikram method).

Anything but Ordinary

Sidney loves doing hair and always has! In fact, she just graduated from Taylor Andrews Academy…woohoo! I’m so glad she’s working at Brick Canvas until she leaves for her mission in December. While this isn’t your ordinary packaging, it is creative, and it reminded me of Sidney’s school’s recent hair show where the hair and costumes were anything but ordinary!

Camping in Style

With Nate’s recent church calling as a member of his ward bishopric, his schedule has gotten busier, but one thing he always makes time for is camping with his family. The Whites’ mode of camping doesn’t look like this birthday packaging, but this cool three-dimensional trailer represents one of their favorite things, and I hope Nate smiled when he saw it.

No Longer a Teenager

Tanner’s been on his mission in the Portland, Oregon area for over a year now. We miss him! One of the things I admire most in Tanner is his writing ability and how faithful he’s been about writing home once a week. His letters are detailed, creative, and always include a challenge for his readers. It’s hard to believe he’s no longer a teenager. Where does the time go?

Sweet Stella

Stella’s really into the doll Baby Alive. She waited weeks after her birthday to finally find the one she wanted! Sweet Stella's favorite colors are purples and black, so this was her birthday packaging.

Similar Gifts

Earlier this year I decided to give my mom and sisters similar gifts designed especially for them. I posted Vonna’s in February, and since Leslie’s and Mom’s birthdays are in the same month, I’m sharing them together. We all have similar taste so I hope they like their hearts as much as I do!

Witty and Beautiful Sage

Sage loves Hawaii and always felt like she was meant to live there (her hair loves humidity, she’s easy-going like the natives, and she can do the hula like nobody’s business!), so her gift packaging this year was a woven paper basket topped with tropical flowers. Happy day (and year) to our witty and beautiful Sage!

Unconventional Packaging

This unconventional packaging, a “wood” crate, adorned with the traditional hunter’s orange and elements of nature, filled with a shotgun shell and casings (one containing birthday money), represents one of Jason’s hobbies…hunting with his dad and friends. I hope this will inspire stamped creations for the hunters in your life.
