More Babies

I don't know if it's just me, but there are new borns popping up everywhere this year.  Perhaps everyone wanted to time it for the year of the dragon.  A few weeks ago (I'm way behind on this post), I went to LA for my cousin's baby shower.  I am honored to be the ninang (godmother in tagalog) of her baby.  So, because I am her ninang, I made it extra special by preparing a special card and package:


With these past two baby showers, I've realized that I really enjoy making cards for babies. haha.  I enjoy doodling kiddy/kawaii designs, so I guess it makes sense that baby cards would be something I can have fun with.  

Decorated the package very simply, using one of my favorite washi tapes of this month.  It's so simple, yet so pretty.  Inside is a children's book - bunny themed of course.  As a teacher, I am crazy about reading to kids.  Kids should be read to often in order to develop a love of reading.  It's never too early to start reading to your kids!  And when they are able to read independently, they should be reading often.  

Sorry kid, your crazy auntie over here is going to be showering you with plenty of books as you grow up!

  2. As an auntie, I shower my nieces and nephews with books--lots and lots of books as well! It's too easy to run to the store and buy a new toy or some clothes, but in my opinion, books make a much longer lasting impression. :) YAY for crazy aunties who buy books for unsuspecting kids! Hee!
