A Baby Bump and a Burkeley Dog

This blog is all about celebrating. Today, I’m celebrating the baby bump and, as always, my sweet mini schnauzer, Burkeley! The bump is here, it’s happy, and it’s growing and growing and growing. At 18 weeks, I find myself insistent that a shirt that does not fit today fit just three days ago. I welcome the change, I celebrate it, and I say, “Grow, baby, grow!”

Congratulations, Cally + Vincent!

I’ve said it before, and I’m going to keep on saying it: Potter+Butler clients know style. Kate Spade NY agrees – as Cally and Vincent’s wedding was chosen to be featured by Kate Spade NY’s Aisle Style. We had the fun of making both the Stand Tall Escort Cards and I Belong Place Cards for this stylish bride’s stunning New York wedding.

Death follows within several years after the first symptoms occur. As this disease is dominant, it is simple to follow. RFLP to locate genes associated with the genetic disorder is less trivial, since it may not be known until several generations later who is a carrier of the disease (heterozygote without disease symptoms) and who is not.

Big News!

Happy day, friends! My husband, Adam, and I are excited to announce we’re expecting a wee little one to enjoy this great life with. Come late January, there will be an entirely new reason to celebrate (and reason to create celebration goods, of course)!

I’ve had the joy and honor of hearing about, and creating for, your little ones as they celebrate milestones – gender announcement parties, 100 days celebrations, first birthdays, all other birthdays, graduations, weddings… the list goes on. I’m one happy camper to be joining the ranks of all of you sincere, inspired, love-filled, joy-filled, celebration-loving, creative mothers.

Cheers to motherhood!

Holiday Preview: Pinecone Cake Topper with Custom Banner

While poolside parties and beach bonfires are still happening in abundance, we’ve got our minds on your fall and winter celebrations. Here’s a sneak peek at our seasonal topper for  fall 2012.  We call it, simply, the Pinecone Cake Topper with Custom Banner.

We’re in love, quite frankly. Not because of our work, mind you, but because of that fact that nature’s work now meets up with sweet and delicious cakes.

You see, all we’ve ever wanted is to plop nature’s beauty on our cakes. Now, we’ve done it. With a food-safe layer of a mini tart pan to make it possible (a soft moss bed inside the tart pan makes it a comfy ride for the cone). And because personalized is what makes a topper something special, we’re throwing in a custom banner so that you can declare why all gather with smiles. Stay cool this summer + enjoy the anticipation of autumn – and all the celebrations that come with the beautiful season. We certainly are.
