Presenting…

November 18, 2009

Miss Mary Adelaide. I have been waiting to show the finished product of my niece’s birth announcements, but I ran into a sort of road block… not owning a camera. The shots I’ve been posting are from my roommate Allison’s Canon, but who wants someone else’s mitts all over your expensive electronics? So I felt guilty (in addition to the subtle hint I got when she started keeping it on her person at all times) and started scoping the interwebs for a good deal. Enter Craigslist. Some people have trouble with this modern wonder, but I have had smooth sailing all the way through multiple transactions, and I’m very pleased with my newest purchase: a Canon PowerShot SD950 IS. It has literally been years since I’ve owned a nice camera, so I (almost) didn’t mind dropping the cash for this one. Plus, I got a great deal, if I do say so myself. I’m loving the camera and, after 5 years, enjoying having one that takes decent pictures. Maybe now I will actually start documenting this time period of my life. But enough of that… here are more pictures of the announcements:

For my very first large-ish edition letterpress project, I’m happy with them & quite excited to be able to give these to my brother and sister-in-law. Off they will go in the mail later today! I hope all who see them enjoy them, despite the fact the child is now 10 weeks old… live and learn, right? And how cute is she? I haven’t seen her since that day she was born, so I’m dying to get home for Thanksgiving to hold her and see that adorable smirk for myself.

    Beautiful job you did, Margaret! Mary is a precious baby. Wish I could see her and Grace and all the Boecker family. Love.
