I wanted to share Miller's announcement with all of my Gimlet readers.  I love the way it turned out.  I designed it with the help of the awesome Allison of The Stationer of New Orleans. 

If you are in Nola, I highly recommend The Stationer.  BUT, if you don't have access to it, my top suggestion is to always ask your local stationery store if they will design something in house for you...especially if they are willing to "be inspired" by a fancy paper line that you may like, but can't afford. 

The announcement included an insert of this pic in wallet size. 

I included a black and white version in the announcement, but I think the color looks great on the blog! 
This photo was taken by my talented friend Julie of Nola Baby.

I love looking at announcements....send me pics of yours if you have something you would like to share with Gimlet Nation! 

Happy Friday, y'all. 



P.S.  Another delightful source for announcements, invites, and stationery if, of course, Tiny Prints.  I am sure that most of you know about TP.    Talk about affordable and STYL-ISH with a ton of design options. 

A pic of baby boy's little thank you notes I recently ordered....

Cute, no?  The price was right!

Happy Friday, y'all.




  1. What a precious pic of your little one!
