A Very Merry Harry Potter Christmas

Every year at this time we begin to obsess about this year's Christmas theme. Most years we opt for a classic look but other years we have been inspired by color and/or current events and/or pop culture. The year the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality for all, we embraced a #LoveWins Christmas and decorated everything rainbow including our Christmas Tree.

Royal Family Home Photos | Aden & Anais Baby Blanket

Prince George's 1st Family Home Photos

Royal Family Home Photos | Aden & Anais Baby Blanket

How sweet is this picture!  Kate's dad, Michael Middleton snapped this photo of the young royals holding Prince George and posed with their cocker spaniel, Lupo.  Would this not make the cutest holiday card ever!  The Royal family looks relaxed and happy and both the baby and the puppy are simply adorable.

Although it is difficult to tell, it appears as if the young prince is wrapped in a fresh, crisp white blanket much like the one he came home from the hospital in.  It seems as if the Duchess taste leans toward clean simplicty. We love these all white Aden & Anais Dreamer Swaddling Blankets 

Aden Anais Dreamer Swaddling Blankets

Eco-friendly Aden + Anais sources organic muslin to create the ultimate in soft and durable baby essentials. Featuring colorful and unique prints, Aden and Anais’swaddling wraps, sleep sacks, bedding and blankets envelop babies in warm comfort, while bibs, changing pad covers, towels, washcloths and skin care accessories ensure all needs are met with quality products. Cozy and lasting, Aden and Anais products make the perfect baby gift for new moms and baby showers

The swaddling blankets allow for maxium breathability and airflow with soft, open weave bamboo rayon fabric. Blankets come in sets of four and each set features different patterns and prints. They can be used for traditional swaddling or as a burp cloth, nursing shield or stroller cover. Machine washable swaddles get softer after each laundering.  

Haven’t learned or can’t quite remember the ins and outs and folds and tucks of swaddling. Check out these How to Swaddle Instructions.

Blurb Photo Books – Capture the Memories!

Blurb Photo Book: Washington DC Photo Book Cover

Blurb Photo Books – Capture Your Memories with Professional Bookstore Quality Binding, Paper & Printing!

I finally finished sprucing up my house with all the my great One Kings Lane finds so I can now concentrate my efforts  on creating my next Blurb Photo Book.  I want this one to capture all the memories and amazing photographs my husband and I made when visiting his brother Andy in Washington D.C.. last Fall.

Both of us had worked at the White House many moons ago and it had been ages since we have gone back to visit so we felt like kids again – wide eyed and energized by DC's dramatic architecture, constant political banter, and great eats.

As I began pulling my favorite photos, I knew right away that Blurb was the perfect platform for this type of photo book.  Although I love Shutterfly for my everyday snapshots, I turn to Blurb when I want a more artistic, professional style product.  Blurb is perfect for professional and amateur photographers, designers, and book-lovers since they are obsessed with quality and sticklers about top-notch binding, gorgeous paper, and professional printing.

Blurb books are bookstore-quality – you'll want to share and show them off for years to come.

And best yet, Blurb is running an April special:

Blurb Photo Book: Washington Monument Photo BooK Cover

Blurb Photo Book: Washington DC Eagle Photo BooK Cover

Make a Blurb Book by April 30, 2013 and take 15% off with promo code APRIL15!

I am pretty sure I have decided on this photo of the Capital for my cover photo but would love your input,  Do you agree or prefer either this photo of an American Bald Eagle we spotted in a leafless tree as we strolled the Mall or this stylized photo of the Washington monument?

Party Hearty!
